So I recently got my Amateur Radio License, in the class they before the exam, they said RF burns really hurt. I can say they do.
Here's the details:
I have a Technician Class License. KD8VPJ.
I bought a BaoFeng UV-5R+. I'm using Chirp to program it.
When I have the HT plugged in to the computer, at random the transmit light starts. No idea why it's doing that. So I pulled the antenna off, and happened to pick the device up while the screen was Orange (transmit). I hit the spot where the antenna connects, while orange. Got a nice little RF burn on my middle finger. Man that hurts.
