    The Wouxun KG-UVD1P is a great radio. The Wouxun instruction manual is awful! Fortunately several people have gone online with instructions in English on how to operate the radio. The best advice for programming the radio is to buy the programming cable and programming software from “Main Place Company”.
    If this is your first radio then you must get your FCC license before you can transmit, but this is easy.
    Go to eham.net for the study guide and practice exams. Take a few practice exams and then take the test.

    Good first radio, some quality problems, October 22, 2012

    I purchased one of these from another vendor for about $130 shipped. I have used it for several months, including the collar mic, surveillance kits, multiple antennas, both as an amateur radio operator and in public safety. It works fine with good audio quality, but there are a few issues:

    The radio’s scan feature is crippled. If the radio is in scan, and you press the button to turn on the backlight, it stops scanning. If you press the button to turn on the LED, it stops scanning. If you try to lock the keypad, it stops scanning. If you want to change which channels are included in the scan, you have to reprogram it from a computer. You can’t even use the dual VFO feature while in scan mode – even though the second channel is still shown on the screen, it is never checked.

    The radio itself has developed a problem. Under certain circumstances which aren’t entirely clear, it will occasionally completely reset itself. I suspect this is due to a power connection issue inside the radio, but for something this cheap I’m not surprised. I’m probably going to replace it and use the broken one as a base station radio.

    The belt clip, where it connects to the battery, is too tight. It takes serious effort to remove the belt clip. Which would be fine, except that it’s also weak. The piece that actually fits in to the battery has broken on me, necessitating a replacement. In fact, all of the plastic pieces here are of significantly poorer quality than what you would get with, say, a Motorola.

    I have used the longer antenna. It’s too long to use in the field, but as a base antenna it works fine and does improve quality. While we’re talking about antennas, on my original antenna the plastic piece has chipped, resulting in the actual antenna coming out of it at an angle. It still works, but yet another example of poor materials. The replacement antenna, the end cap fell off and got lost, so I had to cover it with gaffer’s tape.

    The surveillance earpiece works fine. The surveillance microphone does not. I am told that it results in a ‘muffled’ sound which is barely readable. The collar mic works fine.

    Difficulty receiving UHF – drops signal., September 16, 2012

    Was initially very pleased. Rugged. Feels well in the hand. Excellent base. Funky keyboard layout. Overall, appeared to be an excellent product for the cost.

    However, the UHF receive drops about 2 seconds into the transmission. Highly annoying, especially with scanning. I have not heard of other people having the problem, so likely just the one I got. Will be exchanging.
