Default Baofeng UV-5r Signal Distortion


I recently bought UV-5r and am new to radio communication.

I've set different channel on my device and they work fine when I'm stationed at one place.

The problem is when I'm on my bike and go near 70 kmh, communication starts breaking up and does that constantly like if my device can't keep up with the reception at that or higher speed.

What's the problem and how do I fix it if I need to go faster than 70.

All help appreciated, thanks!

Is it clipped to your belt? You might try a different antenna for it.
I use a longer Nagoya for mine and a mag mount on the car with a female sma/bnc adapter -- even then, the signals drop out -- not the greatest ht but for the price, who cares????
