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 identical to the UV9P Amateur/Ham radio, minus a few features that are prohibited for GMRS, such as the cross-band repeater.

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.

Waitlist Details: This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained. FCC Certification pending. Appearance, features & specifications for the production version of the KG-UV9G may vary slightly with these pre-release details. While we don’t expect anything to change, before shipping occurs, the final production version details will be updated on this page. You will be notified by email when this takes place and when ordering is available, and you will be offered a discounted coupon code.

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).

Custom Programming & Consulting Available! Not sure what you need? Contact us and we’ll be happy to help!

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.

 

Description

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 up to 7.5 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.

The KG-UV9G operating range is as good or better than any other affordable Commercial/Ham or GMRS radio, even with its included stock flexible antenna, which is better than most radios in this price range. As well, with a hi-gain whip, telescoping, or emergency Ed Fong roll-up, external mobile-mount or base station antenna, you will see a significantly improved talk range, even when communicating with another stock handheld. The Wouxun KG-UV9G GMRS is also repeater-capable (with CTCSS/DCS split-tones), greatly extending the potential operating range.
In addition, the UV9G features simultaneous dual-receiver scanning, 10 scanning groups, and improved “scan-advance” functionality over previous 9-Series models, turning the KG-UV9G into a powerful portable communication device & scanner, especially with its extra transmit power, wide 7-band receive range, and full host of accessories (available separately).

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 & 8-10 W 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.
