Wouxun KG-805G Series Questions and Answers
Yes. This radio is fully compatible with all 22 channel FRS, GMRS, or FRS/GMRS combo radios.
While this radio is easy to use and is compatible with other FRS/GMRS radios, it was designed with power users in mind. It is
more durable and has better audio quality than typical consumer radios - basically, it is built like a business radio
It also has advanced features that would usually appeal more to "power users," such as repeater support
and the ability to use PC programming software to customize the channels list.
There are two versions of this radio, the standard KG-805G
and the KG-805G Basic
The difference is the KG-805G Basic costs less, but doesn't provide the ability to change CTCSS/DCS codes (privacy codes) directly from the radio's menu.
It is possible to use CTCSS/DCS codes on the Basic version, but you must use the programming software to do so.
We think the KG-805G Basic works best for users that always talk within the same group of people, and very rarely need to make changes to their
channels once they're working. For example if you're going to buy a few radios for you and your friends to use on camping trips, you're probably
better off saving a few bucks and getting the Basic. If you frequently meet up with new groups of people for motorcycle riding, or travel often
and want to use various repeaters, you should get the standard version.
Yes. Even though this radio is fully compatible with license free FRS radios, it has several features that make it fall under
the GMRS service and not FRS. Some of these features are: 4 watts of power (FRS limit is 2), removable antenna (FRS must be fixed),
and repeater support (FRS doesn't support repeaters). Check out our GMRS licensing FAQ
page for more info.
