I did not have good luck with these radios. They worked good, when they worked. 1st one stopped transmitting before 1 year, BuyTwoWayRadios warrantied it which was good. Second radio lost transmit on 440 side after about 6 months. BuyTwoWayRadios would not warranty this time, not sure why. I contacted Wouxon, and they suggested that I go to a service center, which they told me was BuyTwoWayRadios, however they told me they dont work on them. Overall, I would be cautious with this radio as the support and service behind it is not great. Good luck!

This is the second unit that I purchased as the first one developed head problems on the display I tried everything but I ended up purchasing another one and replaced only the head unit and all worked ok after that . On inspection I found that the LCD rubber contact from the screen detached from the circuit board and this I think caused the screen to loose the display . This may help with other radios you supply Regards Bruno Schneider

I was excited to get my first radio being a new HAM. I received the radio, and was up and running fairly quickly. Over the first couple of weeks, I noticed the display had started changing characters to other than I had programmed. I sent the radio back , received a new one, and not more than two weeks later, it started happening again. I am now waiting for it to return for a second time. In the meantime, I had to purchase a replacement radio, adding to my frustration.

I really like the changing of colors the way you want. I find it easy to program a frequency manually. The speakers work great, I really don't need an external speaker.

I have been an amateur radio operator in the USA for over 25 years and I can find nothing wrong with this radio! I have seen where some say this is not a good rig for amateurs just starting out but I disagree! This radio is a breeze to program manually from the front panel or mic. I love having a receive speaker in the mic. I bought the 2meter 1.25 meter version. I couldn't find anywhere the output on the 1.25 meter side. I took a chance and I am glad I did. This radio is a full 50 watts out on 2 meter and 40 watts out on 1.25 meters. I run an Icom 7100 HF rig in my Mobil which has 2 meter and 70 centimeter along with 6 meter and all the HF bands. I talk and monitor HF while visiting with my buddy on 1.25 meter or 2 meter. This made this rig the perfect fit for me! The Icom 7100 also has the remote head so I have very little equipment in my way while driving. This Wouxun radio seems to be top quality! I rank it right up there with my Icom 7100 which I have nearly $1500 invested. If your thinking about buying this radio do it! You will not be disappointed I promise! 73.....

Comments:

I bought the KG-UV920P as a replacement for a much older Kenwood TM-733. Yes, I know the V-71 is out there, but I wanted to give the Wouxun a try. I am not disappointed. Audio reports are great, and the radio is an snap to program with the RT Systems software. I'm not as radio-active on the ham bands as I used to so this gives me a great bang for the buck. PROS: Everything is included; even the remoting cable and radio mounts. Most everything can be controlled through the hand held speaker mike vs. the front panel. CONS: I haven't figured out if there is a brightness control for increasing the illumination of the front panel, but that would be a big help with these bright Southern days here. That's about it.

PROS

  • Great Starter Base Radio
  • Great Starter Power Suppl

CONS

  • Worthless software

BEST USES

  • As Beginner Base Station

Comments:

This product was shipped promptly, was well packaged, and arrived complete as advertised. Being new at this, I immediately sought help from my local "ham" club. They knew well the capabilities if the radio and power supply, and the near worthlessness of the accompanying program software! After purchase if adequate software, and club member assistance, I am on the air and enjoying my Wouxun Starter Kit - Mobile/Base Station.

Comments:

I was on a budget for a mobile rig, and this one fit the bill. I have been very happy with the performance and get reports of good audio quality from other hams. The speaker in the mike is a nice touch. I also like its ability to operate across all of it's frequencies. I have been using it daily with no issues.

This radio is mounted in my truck. The remote mounting face plate is really nice. Radio is mounted under my seat. Radio is solid. This is my third radio from Cricket Ventures. Very satisfied with the service. They went out of their way to exchange and upgrade another, fourth radio I purchased.

If, after programming the transciever, you discover you can access repeaters, but receive NO audio, try deactivating the PL function on the receiver. Some repeaters use the PL on the input signal only.
