The advanced Wouxun KG-UV9D (Plus) “US Version” is a 999 channel multi-use, 7-band receive, dual-band, true-dual-receive analog FM Ham handheld two-way radio which is ideal for amateur radio, SHTF preppers, survivalists or EmComm emergency communications with – wide 7-Band Receive with 2.5kHz tuning steps.

The KG-UV9D (Plus)  provides reliable emergency radio communications for peppers, survivalists, Neighborhood Watch & CERT groups, ARES, RACES 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, 2nd-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-UV9D (Plus) operating range is as good or better than any other affordable Commercial/Ham radio, even with its stock flexible antennas, which are better than most radios in this price range. 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-UV9D (Plus) is also repeater-capable (even split-band), greatly extending the potential operating range. In addition, the radio features a single or bi-directional cross-band repeater, turning the KG-UV9D (Plus) into a powerful portable communication device.
Ham Radio
Great for SHTF (S#it Hits The Fan) Survival preppers and Amateur Radio (Ham) communications, including CERT, ARES, RACES & SKYWARN. Full 5 Watts of transmit power on VHF and 4 Watts on UHF for maximum range. Note: We offer custom programming for this radio – see the Radio Programming Charts below!
True Dual Receive, Cross-Band Repeater & FM Radio

  1. I Am Extremely Satisfied: This is a comment regarding my recent radio and accessory purchase. I wanted to obtain handheld radios for my personal use on my HAM license while also having additional emergency communications capability. My goal was to purchase two handheld Amateur/HAM radios and a variety of accessories for both of them.

    I purchased two Wouxun KG-UVD9D (Plus) handheld radios, extra 2000 mAh Li-ion batteries, heavy duty speaker microphones, covert surveillance ear piece mics, battery eliminator cigarette lighter plugs, 12V car desk charger cigarette lighter plugs, high-gain dual-band handheld SMA antennas, ANTGAIN dual-band MURS GMRS PS HAM mobile antennas, ANTBASE NMO magnetic mount bases, and heavy duty nylon radio cases (windowed) with belt clips.

    In addition to the radios and accessories, I requested a custom VHF/UHF programming option for the radios for emergency communications during emergency situations. I requested the SHTF programming package which is detailed on this website, and some 20 additional custom channels programmed at my request.

    The products and services I received were excellent! Mark was extremely helpful in providing guidance, professional recommendations/consulting, and also expert services. I found Mark to be very knowledgeable, patient and professional handling my numerous questions and customization requests. His communications were very prompt, providing an exceptional customer experience.

    I am extremely satisfied with the quality of construction and performance of the radios and accessories I received. I will be coming back for additional radio and accessory purchases in the not too distant future. If you are considering a radio purchase I can highly recommend Mark at BetterSafeRadio. Give him a call and see how he can help you meet your two-way communications needs.

  2. Forget Your Cheap Baofeng!

    I have several of the less expensive Baofeng radios, this Wouxun radio is a much higher quality radio all around. It weighs more and the dials and buttons are solid and predictable, and it feels solid in your hands. You can program it with the Wouxun (free) software or the preferred RT Systems software (extra cost).

    Personally I will not buy any more Baofeng radios after using the Wouxun, the KG-UV9D (Plus) will TX/RX frequencies that the Baofeng cannot using the same antennas and power levels.

    Do not hesitate to contact Mark at BSR before your purchase, I am 110% happy I did.
