  • Wouxun upgrades the KG-UV9P with more power

    The Wouxun KG-UV9P High Power Dual Band UHF/VHF Amateur Two Way RadioWhen Wouxun first introduced the KG-UV9P dual band handheld radio, it was already a high powered portable, with 5 watts on UHF and 7 watts on VHF. Now Wouxun has given it an upgrade, boosting the wattage to 7 watts UHF and 9 watts on VHF! Simply put, Wouxun just upgraded the powerful KG-UV9P with even more power!

    If this model is new to you, here's the rundown. The KG-UV9P first arrived in March 2019. It's essentially the KG-UV9D Plus, but with more power, for up to 7 watts on VHF. With our latest shipment, Wouxun just cranked up the power even higher by adding another 2 watts on both bands, and there you go. A high end, feature rich Wouxun handheld with a plethora of power.

    There is one item to note with this upgrade. The KG-UV9P initially included both a standard and a stubby antenna in the package. Wouxun no longer offers a stubby antenna in this newer, higher power version. According to the manufacturer, "the short antenna is not workable with such a high power output. Therefore, we did not include the short antenna... at this time".

    Considering the power maxes out at a whopping 9 watts, this is understandable. As such, use of a stubby antenna on this radio at full power is not recommended.

    The new, more powerful Wouxun KG-UV9P dual band portable handheld amateur radio is now available at Buy Two Way Radios.

  • Differences between the Motorola CP200 and Motorola CP200d

    Motorola CP200 vs. CP200dThe Motorola CP200 was a very popular business two way radio for many years, and one of Motorola's best selling models. In 2017, Motorola discontinued the CP200 and replaced it with an updated model, the CP200d.

    On the outside, they are essentially the same radio. On the inside, there's more to the story.

    The CP200 is an analog only radio. The CP200d adds digital functionality. This digital difference alone gives the CP200d an obvious edge over its predecessor. But is that the only advantage? Let's compare the differences and similarities between these two radios.

    Compatibility
    The Motorola CP200d is a combination analog and digital radio, so it is backwards compatible with the older CP200 in analog mode. The dual analog and digital mode capability allows you to upgrade to digital gracefully through normal attrition instead of ditching analog entirely and going digital all at once. This makes the move to digital much more affordable, and much easier to manage.

    Audio Quality
    It goes without saying that digital radios tend to have a greater clarity than analog models, and the CP200d is no exception. Digital audio is cleaner, without a lot of the background noise and artifacts typically heard on an analog transmission. This helps minimize requests for re-transmissions of garbled or lost dialogue, thus decreasing response time and improving efficiency of communications between everyone in your group. As a digital radio, the CP200d improves on the CP200 with crisp, clear audio for higher quality sound.

    Features
    Both models support up to 16 channels, and both share the same physical characteristics, such as the rotary channel selector knob, tri-color LED, accessory connector, large push-to-talk (PTT) button and two programmable buttons on the side.

    Inside, both models include many of the standard features typically found on many analog business two way radios, but the CP200d includes a few more, such as analog scrambling, a password lock, vote scan, and Auto Range Transponder System (ARTS™). The CP200d also has voice announcements.

    The CP200d is a DMR digital radio, so it adds some unique features not available in an analog radio such as the CP200, such as Dual Capacity Direct Mode, private calling, and transmit interrupt (decode only). These digital features, combined with the added features in analog mode, give the CP200d a significant upgrade over the old CP200.

    The table below compares the features of both models.

    Battery Life
    The CP200d offers slightly longer battery life in analog mode than the CP200, and much longer uptime in digital mode. The CP200d consumes less power in digital mode than analog, and it's another advantage to going all digital.

    Footprint
    Both radios are roughly the same size, but the CP200d is slightly lighter in weight, by about an ounce. Of course, this depends on the battery used, but in every case, with the same battery on both models, the CP200d comes out ahead.

    Durability
    The Motorola CP200 and CP200d are comparable in durability, with solid construction. These radios are built with a rugged, die-cast chassis to withstand harsh environments. Both models are rated IP54 for dust and water intrusion. They are also compliant to Portable Military Standards (MIL-STD) 810C, D, E, and F. In addition, the CP200d is MIL-STD 810G. The CP200d includes a two year warranty from Motorola.

    Accessories
    The CP200 and CP200d share the same form factor, so the batteries, chargers, antennas and other accessories are fully cross-compatible. If you already have a fleet of CP200 radios and want to migrate to digital, going with the CP200d is ideal, since you can use all the accessories in your existing fleet to mix and match with both models. This is a real money saving value and is another reason consider the CP200d.

    Although they have important differences, the Motorola CP200 and CP200d are also very similar in the sense that they are compatible with one another in analog mode. If you already use CP200 radios in your work environment and need to replace a few or want to go digital, the Motorola CP200d is the logical choice.
