Wouxun KG-805M Series Questions and Answers
The KG-805M is built for the Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS). MURS is a service that provides license-free use
of 5 VHF frequencies at low power (2 watts or less). If your current radios use MURS, then the KG-805M is
compatible. Click here for more information about the MURS service
The Wouxun KG-805M (and all MURS radios) work great for either business or personal use. The MURS service was designed
with personal use in mind, but nothing prohibits business use. (In fact, Walmart uses MURS frequencies in their stores.)

There are two versions of this radio, the standard KG-805M
and the KG-805M Basic
The difference is the KG-805M 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-805M 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 buying radios for your warehouse employees to use at your business, you're probably
better off saving a few bucks and getting the Basic. If you frequently meet up with new groups of people for paintball, you should get the standard version.
Yes, if you use the programming software (available from the Downloads tab). The KG-805M 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. The KG-805M allows you to receive transmissions on any frequency in the 136-174 MHz range (although you can only transmit on the specific MURS frequencies). You many want to add a channel for your local NOAA weather frequency so that you can easily hear the forecast, for example. 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.
No. The KG-805M uses the MURS service and is license-free for both business and personal use.
