The first release in the new BetterSafeRadio PRS-GO!™ radio line…
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.

This is the GMRS Two-Way Radio you will EDC (Every Day Carry) or Bug-Out with!
With up to up to 8 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 (certification pending). The UV9G is custom power calibrated for GMRS simplex & repeater use and transmits on all 30 GMRS frequencies.

The new KG-UV9G is a firmware modified version of the Wouxun KG-UV9P, co-designed by Mark Lindsey which 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 two-way radios, such as the cross-band repeater.
The 9G works fine with the RT Systems Advanced Programming Software for the 9D(Plus) that I sell (or the free factory software), and the 9G will accept any program from the 9D(Plus) or 9P (but with Tx locked to GMRS). The slimmer 2000mAh battery pack from the original UV9D & 9D(Plus) is also compatible with the 9G for a lighter, more compact package.
