This procedure is not recommended and may void the manufacturer warranty. Wouxun has stated that they do not recommend or support the use of such "frequency adjust" software. Customers who attempt to modify their radio with the use of such software do so at their own risk.

  1. Excellent review by Ed on 10/10/2018

    Received the radio ahead of time. At first they sent me a refurbished one but after contacting Buy Two Way Radio, it was solved quickly and they sent me a brand new replacement. The receive and transmit quality are great. Great radio for the price.

  2. Love my new Wouxun KG-UV8D Plus Dual Band Amateur Radio w/ 2 review by Johnny Mac on 7/2/2018

    I love my new Wouxun KG-UV8D Plus Dual Band Amateur Radio w/ 2600 mAh Battery - not so much the programming software that come with it, though. The radio is fantastic including the quality of the hardware, the ease of use and the higher capacity battery. On the other hand, the included software leaves a lot to be desired in so many ways. I hated to have to buy the RT Systems software, but the $50 expense was well worth it considering the terrific value of this radio.

  3. I not only would buy this radio again. I did. review by N7GQP on 9/27/2017

    I'm a ham and a member of ARES. I run the communications for our 1000 home community, with 50 frs/gmrs radios through out the neighborhood. In an emergency situation I provide communication to the ARES and County Emergency Management. These radio's cover all the frequencies needed to communicate from FRS/GMRS to Ham vhf/uhf and to monitor other emergency frequencies. Great price for what it does. I also have 4 ea 2600mah batteries.

  4. Great radio; super display! review by Tim on 4/18/2017

    I love the radio! Dual band repeator is a great option. The people at BuyTwoWay make sure customers are happy with every purchase.

  5. Wonderful review by Kennethson on 7/21/2016

    I use this radio on local ham radio nes and listen to public services

  6. Good, inexpensive radio review by K4RRT on 4/3/2016

    I bought this radio to replace a Baofeng that I lost. The quality of the build and the ease of programming is far greater then the Baofeng products. While it's not on the caliber of a Yaesu or Kenwood, it is a great little radio for the price
