We've long been recognized as an authorized dealer of quality, name brand CB radios. Our product line includes models from such established and respected manufacturers such as Cobra, Galaxy, Midland, and Uniden. Now there's one more. We are excited to announce that we're now a President dealer!
President offers a very popular line of CB and 10 meter ham radios, and now all of them are available from Buy Two Way Radios. From the low priced President ANDY through the full featured President LINCOLN II Plus, you can find them all right here.
The ANDY is the entry level model in the President CB line. It's also the lowest priced of the series. But don't let this budget friendly bargain fool you. This CB radio has the full capability to deliver maximum power and high performance using 21st century technology. It operates on all 40 CB channels, receives NOAA weather channels, weather alerts, and has a large LCD display that can be customized to illuminate with one of 7 colors. It features a public address system, noise blanker, built-in Automatic Noise Limiter filter, talkback, a function key, and digital S-meter. The package includes a 4 pin electret handheld speaker microphone with a coil cord and a mounting kit. Price- $74.95.
The President BILL is the next model up the line, and is very different in the look and feel. This is an ultra compact mobile, very similar in design to the Midland MXT115 GMRS Micromobile two way radio, but at a much lower price. Like the ANDY, the BILL supports all 40 CB channels at 4 watts, the maximum allowed for CB in the US. It also has 7 NOAA weather channels, weather alerts, public address capability, and a 7 color LCD display. Many of the other features of the base model are included as well, but the BILL has a few more. In addition to the noise blanker and ANL (Automatic Noise Limiter) filter, the Bill also adds a HI-CUT filter. It can also display the actual frequency of an active channel and has a USB charging port on the front of the radio. If you're short on space in your vehicle or want a CB with lots of features but a very small footprint, this is the radio for you. Price- $89.00.
JOHNNY III USA
The JOHNNY III is similar in design to the ANDY, and with most of the same basic features, but with more buttons. This means more features and functionality over all. In addition to the 7 NOAA weather channels, weather alert, PA support, and noise filters, this radio has built-in hands-free VOX capability. This can be a useful feature while on the road. Now, the display is scaled back somewhat, with only 3 colors instead of the 7 color choices offered in the previous models. But it has 6 buttons on the front panel instead of 2, including one for emergency channel 9/19, Memory Channel Store/Recall and an F Function key. There is also one important difference with the mics. The Andy uses a 4-pin hand microphone, the Johnny III uses a 6 pin connector. It's no biggie, just something to be aware of when choosing between these models. Price- $109.00.
The President TAYLOR is a mid-range model, and switches to a more retro design. This looks and feels like a "traditional" CB radio, with the chrome plated front panel, toggle switches and analog style meter reminiscent of a classic CB. Yet, the addition of a 7 color LCD display also gives in a contemporary feel. Like the other models, the TAYLOR has the NOAA weather channels, weather alerts, PA capability, and the noise filters. Like the JOHNNY III, it also has VOX. It adds the S/RF VU-Meter, Up/Down Channel Selector and USB charging port. If you like the look of a retro CB radio but want the functionality of a 21st century model, This is a CB to consider. Price- $119.00.
JOHNSON II USA
The JOHNSON II is the same basic design and functionality as the ANDY and JOHNNY III, but adds something new, a built-in front speaker! Okay, it also has one more button than the JOHNNY III, but includes most of the standard functions and the 3 color LCD display of its counterpart. It also features 3 memories, channel and memories scan, and Dual Watch. It also has a local DX key. What's not to like about that? Like the JOHNNY III, the JOHNSON II uses a 6 pin connector. Good to know when shopping around. Price- $129.00.
WALKER II FCC
The WALKER II is a premium model. It combines the retro look of the President TAYLOR with a modern flair for a rather distinctive front panel that really stands out. It has the chrome plated front, 7 color LCD display, dials, switches, analog multi-function meter and USB charging port and adds several lighted buttons to the mix. The WALKER also has most all the features of its mid-range cousin and throws in a frequency display and an AM / WX mode switch for good measure. It's a classic President CB at a great value. Price- $139.00.
MC KINLEY USA
The MC KINLEY is the top of the line in the President CB radio series. Like the JOHNSON II, it has an internal speaker built right in, but has a larger 3 color LCD display. It has the primary features and functions of its lower tier look-alike, including 3 memories, channel and memories scan, Dual Watch and local DX key. Then it adds a clarifier and dimmer. The icing on the cake? Single Sideband! Yes, the MC KINLEY operates on AM and SSB, giving you greater access to the local CB airwaves. The MC KINLEY uses a 6 pin connector and has rear jacks for an external speaker, PA speaker, and optional VOX microphone. It's the ultimate President CB radio at reasonable cost. Price- $179.00.
The RONALD is the base model in the President Ham Radio line. It looks nearly identical to the ANDY USA CB radio, except it operates on the 10 meter and 12 meter amateur radio bands. It may be low end, but it's certainly not low power. This compact dual band mobile radio can transmit at up to 35 watts of power and is capable of operating in both AM and FM modes. It has the same large 7 color LCD display as the ANDY, same front panel layout. It also has a noise blanker, built-in Automatic Noise Limiter filter, talkback, a function key, digital S-meter, and that's about where the similarities end. The RONALD adds an AM/FM mode switch, Dual Watch, span and adjustable time out timer. This package includes a 6 pin speaker microphone with a coil cord and a mounting kit. Price- $129.00.
The RICHARD is a dedicated 10 meter ham radio and the mid-range model. It operates at up to 13 watts AM and up to 40 watts FM. It has a 7 color LCD display that is smaller than the RONALD to make room for the analog bargraph meter and all the added controls on the front panel. The meter indicates reception and emitted power levels. It has ANL, NB and HI-CUT filters. It has an AM/FM mode switch, rotary channel selector switch, F function key, MENU function key, Dual Watch, Echo, VFO Mode, and a front panel USB charging port. And a lot of other stuff. The RONALD has big features at low cost. Price- $169.00.
The LINCOLN II+ is the top tier President Ham Radio. It's similar to the RICHARD in form and function, only it has even more power, more modes and more stuff. it operates on both the 10 meter and 12 meter amateur radio bands and supports AM, FM, LSB, USB and CW modes at up to 35 watts on FM and a whopping 50 watts on AM. In addition to most of the standard features of the RONALD, it has 6 Memories, 38 CTCSS tones, 104 DCS codes, clarifier, and AM/FM/LSB/USB/CW Mode Switch. The LCD display only has 3 colors, but the other features more than make up for it. Plus, it's software programmable! Price- $249.00.
All of these President radios come with a two year manufacturer warranty!
With the country battling the outbreak of the Coronavirus, businesses everywhere are dealing with its impact and we're no different. We're creating this post to keep you up to date with any changes to our operations that might impact your shipment, or the customer service that you might receive from us.
We do understand that two way radios are useful in many ways during emergency situations like this one, which can lead to an increase in demand. It is our intention to remain open and continue to ship product for the duration of the crisis.
We plan to keep this post updated as things change, and the latest update will be at the top.
Monday, March 23, 2020
We are still fully staffed and will ship all in-stock orders without delay.
Today we will be operating with all staff working remotely, except for those needed for warehouse and radio programming. We did our best to test and work out the kinks last week, but we do expect the occasional hiccup - especially over the first few days. The following are a few challenges that we are expecting:
Your continued business is very much appreciated at this time, but we may need a little of your patience as well.
Thursday, March 19, 2020
First and most importantly we're still fully staffed and able to ship almost all orders the same day, as you've come to expect from us. We understand that many people consider two way radios to be critical products for their preparedness plans, and we are committed to meeting these needs.
So far this week we've spent a considerable amount of effort preparing our computer and phone systems to work remotely. Some staff members are testing our at-home systems today, and sometime during the next week we hope to have our in-office staff reduced to only those employees that are absolutely essential to have on-site.
Once we have transitioned our sales and customer service team to working from home there may be some changes or delays to our normal process, particularly during the initial stages of the transition. We will keep you up to date on this as the transition approaches.
There are several software CDs that we produce ourselves, in-house. Examples are the Wouxun and TYT software CDs. We sell these individually and include them for free with certain programming cables. With our staff out of the office, we've decided that we will no longer be able to produce these CDs.
For now, we have plenty of CDs in stock, but we are working now to make sure that all radios have links to their software on the Downloads tab from the product page.
Monday, March 16, 2020
As of today there are no changes to our operations. We are almost fully staffed and expect that customer service and warehouse operations will proceed as normal.
The state has closed schools, which does make things more difficult for some of our employees. We are exploring options for allowing some staff members to work from home.
As you've probably heard, China is battling an outbreak of a coronavirus variant. In order to help contain the outbreak, the Chinese government has extended their Chinese New Year holiday. This will impact our Chinese two way radio and accessory suppliers, and will cause delays with shipments, which will lead to backorders.
We have already heard directly from two of our suppliers that shipment delays are expected, and that at this time there is not a date for when they expect to be back to work. Fortunately we did stock up on radios from most Chinese brands prior to the beginning of Chinese New Year, but we do expect our stock to dry up for many popular items before we are able to receive a new shipment.
This will most directly affect products from Chinese based manufacturers. It is unlikely to cause an issue for US based manufacturers that source products from China (Cobra and Midland, for example) unless the holiday extension becomes very lengthy.
While this will cause some short term pain for us and our customers, we do appreciate the aggressive steps that are being taken by China to prevent the spread of this virus and we hope that their efforts are successful.

Retailing consumer FRS and GMRS radios is how we got our start in this business. Over the years, we've heard more than our share of gripes from customers who are looking for something better than the typical "bubble pack" FRS/GMRS radios. Those radios get the job done for most people, but they often don't cut it for advanced users. Anyone that uses a GMRS radio frequently, or needs advanced features (like repeater support) is left frustrated: none of the major manufacturers offer a product that meets their needs, and the few import radios that have been modded for GMRS have considerable drawbacks. Well, after years of asking the major manufacturers to address this need, we've decided to take matters into our own hands.
We've been working directly with Wouxun to design a radio that considers all of the needs of advanced users. It's been a long process, but we're really proud of the result. We hope you like it.
Today, we're introducing the Wouxun KG-805G Professional GMRS Radio. The following is a list of goals that we had for our GMRS radio when we started this process, and thanks to Wouxun we were able to achieve all of this with the KG-805G.
The KG-805G has 30 channels: 22 standard simplex channels and 8 repeater channels. It is compatible with any other 22 channel FRS or GMRS radio right out of the box. If you need to add a PL tone, you can do it directly from the keypad using the menu.
The KG-805G is built using the same "chassis" as the popular KG-UVD1P and KG-UV6D, which have been around for a long time. Replacement batteries for those models work with the KG-805G. The radio uses a standard "K1" style audio accessory connector, so two-pin audio accessories that work with a Kenwood, Wouxun, or Baofeng radio will work with this one.
The display supports three colors, and you can choose a different color for transmit, receive and standby. Channel scan is available by holding the A/B button for 2 seconds. An FM radio is built-in.
Optional programming software is available as a free download. The software allows you to add or remove channels and configure channel settings in an easier way than using the menu. You also have more options than the menu provides, as you can configure options like channel power and bandwidth. You can also add receive-only channels for frequencies outside of the GMRS band. Using the software requires a programming cable.
While our focus was primarily on the GMRS product, we knew that there were customers also looking for a similar radio that operated on MURS. The Multi-Use Radio Service is a license-free service that allows for operation on 5 VHF frequencies at up to 2 watts of power. MURS is great for consumers that often use radios outdoors and don't want to get a license. It is also popular with businesses (even Walmart uses MURS frequencies).
MURS has a similar situation to GMRS, but with an even more limited selection of available products: current radios are either great quality and quite expensive, or they're cheap retrofitted Baofengs. We thought a high quality but reasonably priced radio was needed, so we helped design the Wouxun KG-805M Professional MURS Radio.
The KG-805M is essentially the same radio as the KG-805G, except it is designed to operate on VHF frequencies and we have customized the programming to the MURS service. The KG-805M also retails for $89.99.
Because things can't ever be simple, we also have a version of each radio with a simpler feature set for a few bucks less.
The Wouxun KG-805G Basic and Wouxun KG-805M Basic are available at a retail price of $69.99. The difference? These models don't support adjusting CTCSS/DCS codes via the keypad, so they're more appropriate for use in non-congested areas or when you're commonly using radios with the same group of people.
The CTCSS/DCS tones can be adjusted in the optional programming software, so if you're OK with using a PC for programming these Basic versions are a good way to save money!
This is the most involved we've ever been in bringing a product to market and we definitely want this to be a success. We are very interested in hearing your thoughts on what we got right, or what we got wrong with the KG-805 series. Comment below, or send us a message!
