Hello & welcome to the forum what are you wanting to do with your 5R? They make very poor scanners, as they do flick through a few channels, but very agriculturally & slowly. And on the transmit side unless you have a licence they are not legal to use, although unless you pirate outside of the licence free 446 channels the chances of any complaint is non existent.
