The new Wouxun KG-UV9G is a firmware modified version of the Wouxun KG-UV9P, co-designed by Mark Lindsey will be sold exclusively by BetterSafeRadio. The UV9P is an upgraded, high-power version of the revered and trusted Wouxun KG-UV9D(Plus), known for its quality receivers, performance & features. The 9G GMRS is functionally similar to the UV9P Amateur/Ham radio, with a few modified features that are restricted or prohibited for GMRS, such as the cross-band repeater and power levels.
If you like the clarity and reliability of the Wouxun KG-805G, then you’ll love the massively upgraded functionality and features on the 9G for normal everyday GMRS use, as well as for emergency EmComm and SHTF uses. We’ll also be releasing a replacement for the 805G with an IP67 case for more reliable outdoor all-weather uses in the near future.
The Wouxun KG-UV9G works fine with the RT Systems Advanced Programming Software for the UV9DPlus that I sell (or the free factory software), and the 9G will accept any program from the UV9DPlus or 9P (but with Tx locked to GMRS). The slimmer 2000 mAh battery pack from the original UV9D & UV9DPlus is also compatible with the 9G for a lighter, more compact package.

Shipping Note: Due to USPS restrictions, we are only able to ship 1 extra battery pack per radio and only 2 battery packs total per package via 2-3 Day Priority-Mail (air) service. Orders with 3 or more Li-ion battery packs must be sent by Priority-Mail (surface transport) service only, which may take longer than the normal 2-3 days. Packages with over 5 pounds of batteries will need to be split up into multiple shipments. Contact us if you have any questions.
The BSR-exclusive Wouxun KG-UV9G is a 999 channel programmable dual-band handheld analog superheterodyne FM GMRS two-way radio transceiver with wide 7-band receive range, TDR (true dual receive), repeater capability, and pro features, ideal for families, scouts, SHTF preppers, survivalists, business, or EmComm emergency communication groups. It has 2.5 kHz tuning steps and comes custom pre-programmed with 880 channels for GMRS + SHTF* (ships with Tx locked to GMRS band for Part 95E compliance), for dual-use GMRS transceiver & analog FM scanner operation. User programmable with free downloadable Wouxun programmer or advanced software kit (by RT Systems).
With up to 5 Watts of power (on UHF) and a talk-around range of 2 to 7+ miles (many more when used with GMRS repeaters), the KG-UV9G provides reliable recreational or emergency radio communications for personal disaster preparedness, family outings, scouting, prepping, survival, business operations, Neighborhood Watch, REACT, CERT, Guardian Angels & EARS groups to keep in touch when other methods of communication break down. IP55 rated and Part 95E FCC Certified. The UV9G is custom power calibrated for GMRS simplex & repeater use and transmits on all 30 GMRS frequencies.
Great for personal recreation, SHTF (S#it Hits The Fan) survival prepping, business, and emergency EmComm communications for NNW (National Neighborhood Watch), CERT, REACT, GA (Guardian Angels) & EARS (Emergency Assistance Radio Syndicate organized by BetterSafeRadio) municipal and private neighborhood safety groups. Full 5 Watts of transmit power (limited to 0.5 W on the 467 MHz interstitial channels, as required by Part 95E) on UHF for maximum range and impressive GMRS simplex & repeater performance, with IP55 (dust & water jet resistant) rating for outdoor use. Note: We offer custom programming for this radio – see the Radio Programming Charts below!
Allows monitoring two communication channels simultaneously (V+V, U+U & V+U) in TDR mode (can also set sub-receiver to mute when main receiver is active) and even scanning with both receivers simultaneously so you never miss a call. Great for scanning emergency channels while monitoring a “home” channel or even listening to a Broadcast FM Radio station while monitoring GMRS or other channels. Single receive mode is also available.
Easily program up to 999 regular VHF/UHF channel memories with 8-character alpha-numeric tags, and 20 Broadcast FM Radio station channels (1019 channels total). 3 programmable power levels for operating compatibility and flexibility (UHF: 5/2/0.5 W – Custom calibrated for GMRS simplex & repeater operation). There’s even a bright LED Flashlight & Stopwatch built-in – handy for emergencies, recreation & sporting events.
Easy to operate radio with its compact size, simple menu system and Front Panel Programming. Includes a kitchen-sink list of advanced features never before found in a GMRS radio, at any price (see Key Features above) – The Wouxun KG-UV9G is the GMRS radio you will EDC (Every Day Carry) or Bug-Out with! Each radio includes an extended-capacity 3200 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery (provides 20+ hours of operation between charges with battery-saver mode; thinner 2000 mAh battery pack available separately), 2-4 hour desk charger, flexible, removable dual-band 8″ high-gain SMA-Male rubber duckie antenna for long range comms., belt clip, wrist strap & English user manual. Backed with impressive manufacturer 18-month limited warranty (on radio, 6 months on battery and charger).
Note: Transmitting on the GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) requires a license (currently $70 for 10 years and good for your entire immediate family – typically takes only a couple days to obtain online from the FCC). This radio is not “type-accepted” for transmitting on other bands such as Amateur/HAM, MURS, MMS, LMR, etc. An FCC Certified MURS version is in the works, and the original KG-UV9P is available for Amateur/Ham operation. VHF/UHF Tx firmware unlocked version available for authorized government use only – Contact us for details.
*IMPORTANT: This radio is meant for personal or business use by licensed GMRS operators during normal or emergency “SHTF” (S#it Hits The Fan) situations. Although this radio comes pre-programmed for Part 95E compliance with transmit locked to only the GMRS band, you are ultimately and solely responsible for operating this device in compliance with FCC licensing and regulations, regardless of how it comes programmed. For EmComm use, consult your COML or group communications coordinator regarding device compliance before any official public service operation. The free downloadable customer programming software made available for this radio by the manufacturer is for use by authorized service technicians or license holders to reprogram the radios for transmit on GMRS or receive-only on any other radio service (excluding cellular service). We are not responsible for any harm or loss caused by the use or misuse of this device. Please let us know if you have any compliance questions before purchasing.
