I love the Wouxun Radios. This UV8E is even better than my previous Wouxun radio Works great on 2m, 220 and 440. I would definitely recommend it.
I like first to say I like these radios of wouxun they are easy to program by hand I always think what if you don"t have your laptop with you and you need to put in something and you don"t know how to do it manually guess what 73s
Bought the 8E based on the good experience I has with the KG-UVD1P. Display is very good, 2600 mAh battery life is very good. 1.25 meters works well with local repeater which is my reason for ordering it. Not happy with Channel / VFO Knob because it gets tight in spots when used. Screw holding rubber cover was very loose. Speaker is distorted when loud audio is received, If you reset the radio it reboots into Chinese menu system. Use manual to reset to english. The Red programming cable works 100% with drivers on WIndows 10 unlike the old Prolific Chipped Cable. The Red cable also works for Baofeng and I I'd imagine some Kenwood HT's also. Again no radio is perfect but for the price it was a decent buy for 1.25 Meters.
My second Wouxun ht. The KG-UVD1P I purchased 5 or 6 years ago still works very well. Only purchased this unit to add 220 Mhz capability for under $200.00. These are great little radios.
This radio has great audio quality, I've had great signal and audio reports. Seems very well built and fits nice in the hand. I love the rotary dial channel selector. Cross band repeater is a "big plus". Extended battery a "SUPER PLUS"
