The affordable Wouxun KG-UV3D (US Version) is a 128 channel multi-use, dual-band, dual-watch analog FM Commercial & Ham handheld two-way radio which is ideal for business, amateur radio, SHTF preppers, survivalists or EmComm emergency communications with a usable range of VHF 136-174MHz & UHF 420-520MHz (not narrowband-compliant due to 5kHz tuning steps but can operate Narrow FM).

The KG-UV3D provides reliable emergency radio communications for peppers, survivalists, Neighborhood Watch & CERT groups, businesses and Hams to keep in touch when other methods of communication break down.

Redesigned in the U.S. by the TERA engineers, this is a sturdy, full power, 3rd-generation commercial two-way radio with high performance, great audio and an IP55 Dust & Water (jets) Resistant rating. With our signature ReadySafeGo™ service, we charge the battery pack, custom program for you (see options above/below), and test each unit (including antenna), so your new radio is guaranteed to be usable the second you open the box, and to NOT be DOA!

The KG-UV3D operating range is as good or better than any other affordable Commercial/Ham radio, even with its stock whip antenna. As well, with our hi-gain whip antenna upgrade or an external mobile-mount or roof/tree-mount antenna (for base station use), you will see a significantly improved talk range, even when communicating with another stock handheld. The KG-UV3D is also repeater-capable (even split-band), greatly extending the potential operating range.
Note: This radio was originally an LMR (commercial/business) radio and has Part 90 FCC Certification. Because it does not have 2.5kHz tuning steps, it does not conform to today’s narrowband standard, but the Part 90 certification is grandfathered and active and it does operate in wide (25kHz) or narrow bandwidth (12.5kHz) FM modes. It is legal to use this radio on the LMR band, with an appropriate license, on frequencies with a 5kHz tuning, but we are selling this unit as an “unlocked” amateur radio.
Commercial/Business/Ham Radio
Ideal for security patrols, private investigators, business communications, schools, universities, construction crews and other organizations that have FCC licensed frequencies. Also great for Amateur Radio (Ham) communications, including ARES and RACES. Full 5 Watts of transmit power on VHF and 4 Watts on UHF for increased range. Note: We offer several “unlocked” custom programming configurations for this radio – see the Radio Programming Options above and Radio Programming Charts below!
Dual Watch Receive Mode & FM Radio
Allows monitoring two communication channels simultaneously (V+V, U+U & V+U) in dual watch mode (audio from one channel at a time). Great for scanning emergency channels while monitoring a “home” channel or even listening to FM Broadcast Radio. Single receive mode is also available.
148 Channels & 2 Power Levels
Easily program up to 128 regular VHF/UHF channel memories with 6-character alpha-numeric tags, and 20 FM Broadcast Radio station channels (148 channels total). 2 programmable power levels for operating flexibility (VHF: 5/1W, UHF: 4/1W). There’s even a bright LED flashlight built-in – handy for emergencies.
Pro Features & 1 Year Warranty!
Easy to operate radio with its compact size, simple menu system and Front Panel Programming. Each radio includes a 1700 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery (provides 15+ hours of operation between charges with battery-saver mode), 2 hour desk charger, flexible antenna, belt clip, wrist strap & user manual. Backed with impressive 1 year limited warranty (on radio, 6 months on battery and charger), and designed, supported and serviced in the USA (Southern California).

Note: PLMRS (Private Land Mobile Radio Service) operation is a coordinated band and does require an FCC license. Amateur Radio (Ham) operation also requires a license. This radio is not “type-accepted” for use on some bands such as GMRS, FRS, MURS & MMS, etc.

IMPORTANT: The custom programming options for this radio are meant for emergency communications during emergency or “SHTF” (S#it Hits The Fan) situations. You are solely responsible for operating this device in compliance with FCC licensing and regulations, regardless of how it comes programmed. We are not responsible for any harm caused by the use or misuse of this device. Let us know if you have any questions before purchasing.
