Finally, you don't have to sacrifice quality to get GMRS convenience. The KG-805G has the features and ease of use that are available in common lower quality FRS two-packs. All 22 standard channels are available, with a display that and menu that provides easy customization of common options like CTCSS/DCS codes.

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.
Yes, if you use the programming software (available from the Downloads tab). The KG-805G supports up to 128 channels, and with the software you can add new channels or even remove standard ones. The CTCSS/DCS tones can be customized for each channel and can be different for transmit and receive.

Extra channels are useful for many reasons. If you access different repeaters that use the same frequency but different tones, it's more convenient to add each combination to it's own channel instead of changing tones through the menu. Channels can also be given friendly names instead of a simple number, and the default channel names can be customized.

A programming cable is required to customize the radio through the software. Check the Accessories tab above for options.
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: 5 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.
Lots of reasons! In short, we've been in the radio business for a long time (since 2002) and we do things the right way. Our staff is here to help if you have a question or a problem. We stock these radio in our on-site warehouse, so if we tell you something will ship then you can believe us.

  1. Good, sensitive, GMRS radio review by vsp on 9/7/2020
    Rating

    Tested following in wooded area with 1,2,3 floor houses all around neighborhood (no wide open areas). All with standard antenna

    (1) FRS Channel 8 (0.5 watts) . One end inside house, the other end about 1.2 miles away.
    Overall 4 out of 5. There were a couple of spots with 2 or 3 out of 5.
    I think this is pretty impressive for 0.5 watts


    (2) GMRS channel 5 (5 watt). I am getting about 3 miles (simplex of course).
    But for that I needed to install the nagoia 15 inch antenna on at least one radio (did not try with both having the antenna upgrade).
    With standard antennas, I was getting lot of static.
    Squelch was set to 1 to allow maximum transmission.

    ---
    I like that the radio has squelch control. Scan function and ability to set DCS tones for each channel individually.

    Also useful, that you can listen to FM, and radio will automatically switch to RX when it gets a transmission on your channel, and transmission matches your DCS code.

    This way you can enjoy FM (if you actually like your local programming!), but will be able to get contact, when being called.

    I like that it can change background color when getting RX, or doing TX (transmission).

    Feels well built, great to have removable batteries, of course.

    ---

    Improvements that I would recommend for this top tier product are the following:

    (1) allow to scan on the background while listening to FM

    (2) add a mp3 player function (I hate my local FM programming!)

    (3) add weather channel such that at least every X hours you can get the weather broadcast for say 2 minutes in length (both X and minutes configurable)

    (4) My battery goes down from 8.2 V to 7.7V after may be 20 short transmissions, not sure if that's how it is supposed to work or not.
    Battery goes down to 5.9V or so before it starts beeping. It is not clear what manufacture expects the life of the battery to be, so this is just an observation.. I personally, would like to last it for at least 5 days with 10 min transmission time per day, and stand-by on receive 24x5 -- but may be this is too much to ask!

    (5) A small led flash light on the back of the battery
    (even independent of the radio) would be nice.
    After all, this is for family communications, and family communications do not end at 5pm

    (6) I would like to be able to configure 2W, 0.5w or 5W on GMRS channels. Right now GMRS channels are hardcoded to 5w and FRS channels 8-14 are hardcoded to 0.5W.
    Clearly, the FRS channels should not be configurable. But I would like to configure GMRS channels to lower power settings, optionally.

    Good radio usage practice is to use only as much power as needed. This is FCC guidance (but not a requirement). And for some channels I do not need 5W, I would like 2W or even 0.5. So I would like to be able to configure it.

  5. A solid and functional radio review by Radioman on 8/29/2020
    Rating

    I've just had 2 of these for a few days. Initial impressions: This handheld is fairly easy to set up and use, and is simple because it is a dedicated GMRS transceiver. Changeable antenna a must. Range of communications seems good. Keylock feature useful. I plan to use these for family communications when camping or hiking.

  6. Solid Gmrs Radio review by HotKarlHungus on 8/29/2020

    Works great. Able to hit a few repeaters locally. Easy to program. Enjoy being able to program the same frequency multiple times and name them so I can hit repeaters on road trips. Had the btech but returned it after trying this radio out.

    This is a great radio that performed as described .

  8. Excellent reception review by PhilH on 8/22/2020
    Rating

    I bought both the BTECH v1 and this radio to compare them against each other. Both have their strong points but one standout for the 805g is its ability to pull in distant stations. A side by side comparison, sharing various antennas between the two radios, showed the 805g to be consistently a better performer on receive.

  9. Wonderful review by TomTom on 8/19/2020

    I have truly enjoyed these radios out on the ranch. The range is so much better than the local electronics stores. Battery life is also great. Having FM stations is also handy if there is an emergency. (I live in a hurricane prone area)

  10. Excellent Radio for the money review by VictorJeff on 8/16/2020
    Rating

    I have been impressed by the power and function of the radio. I live in Upstate NY and use a repeater that sits 2000 feet AGL . The repeater is over 35 miles away and I have no problem talking through the repeater.

    Still a novice but the 2 KG-805G that I bot from BuyTwoWayRadio.com are great.

    I have talked to the team in SC on a few occasions and they are awesome !

    Impressed with this little radio. Little powerhouse of a radio. Have not used it much yet but I have been able to receive about 3 miles in a hilly rural area. Much better than the other GMRS radios have had. Puts the others to shame. Thinking about hooking up to an external antenna just to see what it can do. Maybe get a chance to use the repeater functionality. Need to buy a couple more... :-)

  14. Solid radio for the money. review by Kaz on 5/9/2020

    Love this radio. Beats blister pack radios hands down. Easy to program ctcss/dcs codes from the keypad or optional pc cable. FM radio is a nice feature, just wish you could scan while listening to radio and the battery fit a little better. Would recommend to anyone looking for a gmrs HT. Buy Two Way Radio's had very fast shipping even during covid-19 crisis. Will buy from them again. I bought two and have no real complaints. Now can they make a mobile unit.

  16. Best portable GMRS radio review by Amgovret97 on 4/16/2020
    Rating

    I really love the fact that this radio can be programmed with multiple like frequencies differing only in tones. I have three repeaters on the same frequency with different tone squelches. The only problem I have is a glitch in the software that will not allow you to print the list of frequencies. One must take a screen shot of the list, and print from that. The radio is the best.

    Great radio for the price and they work well. Clarity has been great and easy to use. Customer service was excellent and they recommended these radios for my purpose even though i was willing to spend more, which i appreciated!

  18. Excellent Urban Radio review by Lee on 4/1/2020

    We use radios in our CERT team (called NET in Portland, OR), and in our 30 story steel and concrete apartment building. This radio perfrorms better than we had hoped sending clear signals 30 stories and throughout our dense, urban, highrise neighborhood. We are very pleased.

  19. Small package well designed. review by Bill on 3/13/2020
    Rating

    The radios Minimalistic design works perfect. Well thought out and very easy to use. Sound and build quality is very good. Although only 4 Watts Transmit Power, the radio performs well. In fact, performs so well for a small package, I have bought three of these radios.

    Really nice radio. Do not think you can beat it at this price. Great sound and really good reach with the higher wattage. I live in a rural area branching into a small town. Great travel on send and receive. Clear and crisp. Kicked on the FM radio function and it works great!

  21. Very Good product review by ddm on 2/27/2020
    Rating

    It is about time that a company produced a portable that has the repeater frequencies built in and 4 watts of power for the GMRS frequencies. Midland produced the mobile radios but this is the first portable that really works. Very easy to add and edit CTCSS tones for both transmit and receive frequencies.

  22. Good HT review by Scott Haney on 2/21/2020
    Rating

    I have just started testing this HT, but it beats my Btech GMRS-V1 for range (both with factory antennas). So far, I have been able to hit my base station (30' AGL antenna) from up to 10 miles across rolling terrain. The PTT button frequently sticks in the XMIT position, and I have to flick it to release it. I would like to see a Firmware? change that would allow for programming multiple custom "channels", by which I mean combinations of frequency+PL tone+name on the FCC-allowed frequencies with the appropriate power level and bandwidth. The KG-UV6D parent radio of the 805 can store 199 memory channels, so I do not see why the 805 could not store about that many as well. So far, I am impressed with the radio.

    I wish Wouxun or another company would make a 50W mobile GMRS unit with wideband capability, and the programming featrues I listed above. I have the Btech GMRS mobile,and it seems like a good unit, but lacks the custom channels feature.

    the other thing needed for GMRS is IP67/ruggedized transceivers.

    At this point, I will recommend this radio to my family and friends,as I am the "commo guy" for them.

  23. Great product review by Lyle on 1/6/2020

    No item is perfect but I still give this radio 5 stars. Great sound quality and performance. Very well made and I will be ordering more for the family. I have tested this over the last two weeks and am glad I purchased it. Nice to have a good GMRS radio that is repeater capable and strong battery.
