Two issues from myself and the ham who recommended purchasing this radio. First, the Wouxon programming software is VERY confusing to install and required a lot of trial and error - very frustrating. In addition there is currently no Chirp programming ability made available to date for this radio although has been out for quite a while and it is available for other Wouxon radios. Having said all that the radio is a joy to use!
This radio package is a real deal for under $200
Use software to load rig. How do you use it to scan?? Can't search to find freq store in rig. Sorry but hoping to use it one day. WA4ZDV, Alex
The handheld came with many extra accessories.
This radio is more than I expected as the price is very reasonable. Audio is very good and the quality seems to be very good.
I reviewed this product earlier and am still a full 5-star user. Works better than expected. Receive audio is crisp- and clear. Reports on the transmit audio are all great. Spectrum analyzer shown a clean signal.
Order was processed on Monday, shipped on Monday and arrived on Wednesday. Everything was well packed. First impression... very solid feel in the hand. Nice size. Great display for hams like me with 'old eyes'! Fired up the Wouxun programming software after plugging the USB cable into my Win 10 system. I had already put 20 or so local repeaters into the software so I was ready to go. Saved the Factory Default radio settings before starting anything. Good idea for retired engineers who like to try everything. Wrote new settings and repeater info to the radio and PRESTO... everything worked from the get go! I have heard chatter about problems with Wouxun radios but they were all over 3 years old. My comments are all positive. I just hope it is still working in a year or two. Time will tell but so far I have received positive reports on signal quality and audio. All in all, a very good experience. 73, Rich K9AAO
Package comes with everything you need and don't need. well worth the money. People can say what they want about these Chinese radios but you won't go wrong with this one.
Easy to use, functional. Eliminates having to carry multiple radios.
I purchased this on someone's recommendation. He said the price is great considering what is included. But considering why I wanted a two-way radio, I should have purchased something a little simpler to understand...if that were possible. Me being a novice, I suspect this transceiver has more bells and whistles and capabilities than what I need. It certainly has many features that I have no idea what they are about. I just need to research what it all means. I can say, though, that even the user's guide is not meant for the novice. I am not knocking the product, itself.
I would recommend it to anyone who needs a radio that has everything it needs in one package,
The 9D's are far better than the 8D series. The price of the 9D's are reasonable with all the extras that comes with the radio.
This is by far the best model Wouxun has produced to date. That said, the manual and the software leave you with more questions than answers. The audio is super clear. Aircraft enthusiasts will love the loud robust audio in the AM band. The true dual receive is a great feature.
Good radio, works as advertised, like the accessory package. However, software included would not work, so downloaded software from the official site and all is well. Would highly recommend this radio.
Very happy with this purchase, this radio does everything that they said it would do. Very easy to program with a computer. You can't beat two-way radios prices and if you have any questions regarding the products they sell they have the answers
I bought RT Systems programmer, first and glad I did! No complaints other than the poor instructions and terrible programming software included with the radio...a real shame considering the quality of the radio!
OK.. started to write my first review, and was only about 1/2 complete when the comment section said "YOU ARE OUT OF CHARACTERS!!!" What a bummer. ANYWAY... I'll try and make this one a little shorter. For what I like about the 9D series, look at my review on the regular 9D. Everything missing from the first 9D's is here in the 9D Plus. Leather case (which actually fits the regular 9D, Extra battery, car eliminator, etc etc etc.) The only thing I don't like about the 9D Plus, is I wish they would have used the ORIGINAL 9D case instead of putting it in a new case which looks like a cross between an 8D and a 9D. You can program the screen to turn all the way off now, turn off the blinking green light on top, and even use cross band repeat when you need it. When I have all the extra lights turned off, and even set my screen to "Always Off" my battery life ROCKS. Still the only downside to these radios is the included "High Gain Antenna". The longer one. I replaced mine with the Wouxun KG-UV6D antenna SMA Male sold here, and find it works MUCH better than the long one supplied. For a even better signal get the Nagoya 701. The Wouxun 6D antenna is great for every day usage though. All in all I really like this radio. I like that it comes with every accessory you need, and really does look nice. It even feels nice. It's a great radio and all in all a really great find! 73! James W8JVF
Great, solid little radio, excellent customer service, answered all my emails and questions quickly. Quality products and service.
Lot of useful features, good sound, great range and informative display. If I would loose it I will reach it again.
This radio is being prepped for use by a research team that will be spending 6 months in Central Africa and the Congo. The low price and availability of extras makes it the #1 choice for not breaking the research budget! With the wide band receive, we can monitor the local park rangers and military in the area as well as do what we need to without having to pack additional radios when weight and space is a factor.
