To use the two Baofeng radios on SO-50:

1.  Program one memory channel for 145.85 MHz with a 67 Hz tone.

2.  Program another memory channel for 145.85 MHz with a 74.4 Hz tone.
 This channel will serve to turn on the 10-minute timer when required.

3.  Next, program a set of memory channels sequentially: 436.805,
436.800, 436.795, 436.785, and 436.780 MHz

4.  Use one of the radios as your uplink radio, transmitting on either
of the 145.85 MHz memory channels as necessary.

5.  Use the other radio as your downlink radio, listening on
436.805-780.  Based on my experience with Baofengs I consider them to
be slow in changing memories, so I would stick to the VFO-mode for the
downlink receiver.  Manually set the VFO to 436.805 and adjust down as
necessary for Doppler.

You may program the Baofengs to operate "split" mode but then you're
limiting yourself to semi-duplex operation.
