Wouxun KG-D901 DMR Digital Two Way Radio Preview Video


Wouxun took the ham radio world by storm when it introduced the KG-UV8D. Since then, the company has gained a considerable foothold in the market with an entire line of handheld amateur radios based on variations of the 8D, such as the KG-UV8D Plus, KG-UV9D, KG-UV9D Plus, and more recently the KG-UV8E Tri Band Radio. Now they are about to enter all new territory with the introduction of their first digital radio, the KG-D901!

Watch as Danny Feemster from Buy Two Way Radios opens up the box and gives you both a brief overview and a sneak peek at Wouxun's first DMR radio and what may become their next best seller! For more details on this digital handheld radio from Wouxun, read the specs and hear our discussion on The Two Way Radio Show Podcast episode TWRS-99 - The New Wouxun KG-D901 DMR Digital Radio.

Any idea on price

It's not comparable to any other DMR radio with a color screen. So it should be priced less. 2 zones with 16 channels each isn't much. Sounds like a $75 to $100 radio to me. Don't mean any disrespect.

Is it the same OS as Tytera MD380, MD390 or Retevis rt-8? Will experimental firmware work with it?

single band junk!

Can't decide between the convenience of dual-band analog (not to mention the scanning abilities with all the extra RX bands of the KGIV9D and the discrete transmissions of a single-band digital radio.

Ah well, I'll hold on to the 9D until Woxun steps off its laurels and releases a full-fledge dual-band TX. It's not as if it were an impossible feat, it just that, I suppose, in its initial release Wouxun is keeping something worth buying next year, hence locking down the dual mode... What a bummer!

In the meantime, thank you for the preview video.

The D901 has 2 zones 16 channels, where the MD-380 has 250 zones, up to 16 channels per zone. Hopefully the channel memory is increased the firmware is user up-gradable.
