The advanced Wouxun KG-UV9D(Plus) is a 999 channel programmable dual-band handheld analog superheterodyne FM Ham two-way radio transceiver with wide 7-band receive range, TDR (true dual receive), and built-in cross-band repeater, ideal for amateur radio, SHTF preppers, survivalists or EmComm emergency communications. It has 2.5kHz tuning steps and comes custom pre-programmed for SHTF* (ships with Tx locked to Ham bands only for Part 97 compliance). Programmable with free (downloadable) or advanced software kit.

With up to 5 Watts of power and a talk-around range of 1 to 6+ miles (many more when used with repeaters), the KG-UV9D(Plus) provides reliable emergency radio communications for amateurs, peppers, survivalists, Neighborhood Watch, ARES, RACES & CERT groups to keep in touch when other methods of communication break down. IP55 rated and Part 15B Certified & Part 97 compliant.

The KG-UV9D(Plus) operating range is as good or better than any other affordable Commercial/Ham radio, even with its two included stock flexible antennas, which are better than most radios in this price range. As well, with our hi-gain whip antenna upgrade, an 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 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. With its True Dual Receive, the UV9D(Plus) is also great for AMSAT Amateur Satellite work.



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
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). Great for scanning emergency channels while monitoring a “home” channel, simultaneous scanning different bands or scan groups (ranges of channels) on both receivers at the same time, or even listening to FM Broadcast Radio. Single receive mode is also available.
999 Channels & 3 Power Levels
Easily program up to 999 regular VHF/UHF channel memories with 8-character alpha-numeric tags, and 20 FM Broadcast Radio station channels (1019 channels total). 3 programmable power levels for operating flexibility (VHF: 5/2/1W, UHF: 4/2/1W). 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 2000 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery (provides 18+ hours of operation between charges with battery-saver mode), 2-4 hour desk charger, 2 flexible antennas (dual-band 4″ & 8″ rubber duckies for short and longer range comms.), belt clip, wrist strap & user manual. Backed with impressive 1 year limited warranty (on radio, 6 months on battery and charger).

  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.
