I came across this video through the qrz.com forums. K5CLC did some extreme testing of a Baofeng UV-5R, including setting it on FIRE! The results are interesting. Skip to 2:57 to see the flames. I really like my Baofeng HT...not as my primary radio but as the one that is with me when I'm working on the farm, tinkering in the barn, or anytime I'm likely to have dirty hands.
