The Wouxun KG-UV980H is the latest quad band base/mobile two way radio based on the popular KG-UV950P. It has all of the same features of the original, but at an even more affordable price! With four band transmission and eight band reception, this powerful radio delivers up to 40 watts UHF and 50 watts VHF at a very low cost!
Like its counterpart, The KG-UV980H has 999 programmable memory channels with CTCSS and DSC encode/decode, DTMF encoding/decoding, priority channel scanning, and twin band simultaneous reception with selectable power levels.
The UV980H also has the same versatility as the 950P, with the ability to serve as a full duplex cross-band mobile repeater. It has five repeater settings - normal radio mode, directional cross-band repeater mode, two way cross band repeater mode, repeater receiving mode (receiver) or two-way cross-band relay mode (used to combine two transceivers into a repeater). You can connect two
KG-UV980H radios together using the included 15 foot extension cable or the microphone connection cable to create your own working repeater. You could do it with the 950P as well, but with the KG-UV980H, you can do it for considerably less cost!
All the other standard features of the 950P are included in the 980P as well, such as the built-in 76-108Mhz FM radio, 1750Hz burst tone, Channel Name edit and display, group calls, 8 group scrambler, low voltage voice prompt, stun and kill function, reduced noise settings, remote control setting and a built-in cooling fan. It's all there, and at lower cost.
The KG-UV980H has all the characteristics of the 950P both inside and out. It has dual speakers built right into the top of the chassis with multiple speaker channel settings. The large, dual frequency LCD display has a 3-color selectable backlight in blue, green or white. The the front panel with backlit buttons is detachable and can be relocated separately from the radio chassis just about anywhere in your vehicle with a 15 foot extension cable included in the box. It even uses the same handheld speaker mic with the backlit full featured keypad to boot.
The KG-UV980H can also be powered by the optional Wouxun SPS31WIN Power Supply to turn your quad band mobile receiver into a fully operational quad band base station!
The Wouxun KG-UV980H comes with a handheld speaker microphone, inclined switchboard panel, flat switchboard panel, mobile mounting bracket, remote front panel bracket, mobile power cord, 15 foot extension cable, hand microphone hook, fuses, screw set, an owner's manual and a one year manufacturer warranty from Wouxun.
Important Note: The Wouxun KG-UV980H does not support the expansion of the frequency range outside of the amateur bands. As such, the frequency range cannot be expanded via software to include frequencies outside of the amateur bands (including the business bands).
Optional Power Supply
Turn your Wouxun KG-UV980H mobile radio into a full-featured fixed base station with the Wouxun SPS31WIN Power Supply!
This 30A switching power supply has an output voltage of 13.8V DC and is adjustable between 9V and 15V! It offers automatic current limiting within 30A for protection from short-circuits and and includes a built-in backlit single volt/current meter to keep you informed of current power levels.
The KG-UV980H and SPS31WIN combo is a great option for those who want a powerful base station without the powerfully high cost!
