My BaoFeng has a dirty mouth.

At first I thought it was just an Ass Hat busting in on the nets with a computer generated affront.

Its been a couple months since I bought this radio and have been hearing this on and off. UV-5RV2+. So last night I knew my battery was getting low and I'd have to switch it out soon, when the affronts started in on the SEFTN net again. But this time I realized that it was my radio that was generating it and not the station. Turns out it was my HT this whole time. My next thought was did I get a virus using the CHIRP software to program it. :roll:

And then realized it was related to the low battery. And then I finally figured out what it was really trying to say. :oops:

Yep, I hear something slightly different than what is mentioned in that post. But the funny part was that I thought it came from an outside station for the longest time, and then once I realized it was my radio, I figured out what it was actually saying in about 10 minutes after I linked it to the low battery status.

I even thought it must be something in Chinese during that 10 minutes. :roll:

I can hear what it sounds like it is saying. What is it really saying?

"Low Voltage"

It was doing it again today on the way in to work. :lol:
When the battery level hits 6.4 volts it starts up with its filthy mouth and continues until it performs an auto shut down at <6.3v.
[if I don't change the battery or turn it off first]
