  • Frequency ranges of the Wouxun KG-UV9D

    Since our announcement of the upcoming launch of the Wouxun KG-UV9D, we have received numerous queries for more details about the capabilities and features of this new radio. Some of the more frequently asked questions are related to bands and frequency ranges covered by the KG-UV9D and which of the two sides or areas of this dual receive radio (A, B, or both) support them.

    The KG-UV9D does indeed perform Twin Band Simultaneous Receiving, which means both A and B areas of the radio can independently receive and audibly emit a signal through the speaker, allowing you to hear two bands and, on some bands, two frequencies on the same band at the same time.

    We put the emphasis on the word some, because not all 7 bands are supported in both A and B areas of the radio. The table below maps the bands and frequencies supported by the KG-UV9D and the area(s) of the radio in which each will operate.

    Wouxun KG-UV9D Frequency Range
    Area A RX TX Area B RX TX
    ©2015 www.buytwowayradios.com
    76-108MHz (FM Radio)
    108-136MHz (AM)
    144-148MHz (FM) 144-148MHz (FM)
    136-180MHz (FM)
    230-250MHz (FM)
    350-400MHz (FM)
    420-450MHz (FM) 420-450MHz (FM)
    420-450MHz (FM) 420-450MHz (FM)
    700-985MHz (FM)

    In a nutshell, the 2 meter VHF (144-148MHz) and 70cm UHF (420-450MHz) bands are available on both A and B for transmit and receive operation. In addition, the KG-UV9D can also receive up to 180MHz in the A area only. The only other band available on the B side is the FM radio. The other bands can be only received in the A area.

  • The Wouxun KG-UV9D unboxing video

    Earlier this week we told you about a brand new multi-band two way radio coming soon from Wouxun, the KG-UV9D. Now you can get a good look at this new radio up close for the first time!

    In this exclusive unboxing video, Danny Feemster from Buy Two Way Radios opens the box, gives you a brief overview of what's inside and performs a physical and cosmetic comparison between the Wouxun KG-UV9D and its popular cousin, the KG-UV8D side by side. For more information, read the full specs on the Wouxun KG-UV9D.

    UPDATE (4/20/2015): The Wouxun KG-UV9D is now available for pre-order!

  • Announcing the new Wouxun KG-UV9D!

    9d_02.jpgIn early 2014 Wouxun announced the launch of a dual band handheld amateur radio with a large color display and cross-band repeat capability, the KG-UV8D. This radio quickly became one of the most anticipated new ham radios of the year and was very well received. Buy Two Way Radios was one of the first radio dealers to tell you about it, and the first to bring it to the US market. It has remained one of our most popular amateur radios since.

    One year later, the company has just announced a new model that aims to deliver even more excitement to the ham community. It's the Wouxun KG-UV9D, and it takes the 8D to a whole new level!

    Billed by Wouxun as a multi-band, multi-RX, multi-display, multi-modulation and multi-functional two-way radio, the KG-UV9D offers dual band transmit and 7 (that's right, you read seven) bands reception. The list includes 76-108MHz (FM radio), 108-136MHz (AM RX), 136-174MHz FM RX/TX), 400-512MHz (FM RX/TX), 230-250MHz (FM RX), 350-400MHz (FM RX) and 700-985MHz (FM RX).

    While the full color display is similar in design to the KG-UV8D, the new radio looks and feels different. The KG-UV9D also has some new or improved features. According to Wouxun, some of the features of the KG-UV9D include Twin Band Simultaneous Scan, Multi-Keypad Lock Modes and the ability to adjust the brightness of the backlight with five level settings.

    One interesting and unique feature is Lock Mode. You can lock the keyboard, lock the keyboard and the encoders, lock the keyboard and the PTT, or lock it all.

    The most exciting part of this announcement? We just received two samples of the KG-UV9D today and are checking them out now. The KG-UV9D unboxing video is now available so you can get a first look at this new multi-band radio from Wouxun. Stay tuned for more!

    Subscribe to our blog at Buy Two Way Radios for the latest on this exciting new radio coming very soon from Wouxun!

    For more details, read the Wouxun KG-UV9D spec sheet.

    UPDATE (5/13/2015): The Wouxun KG-UV9D is now available!
