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 their quality double-conversion superheterodyne receivers, performance & features. The 9G GMRS is functionally similar to the UV9P Amateur/Ham radio, with a few modified features that are restricted or prohibited for GMRS, such as the cross-band repeater and power levels.

If you like the clarity and reliability of the Wouxun KG-805G and KG-905G, then you’ll love the massively upgraded functionality and features on the UV9G for normal everyday GMRS use, as well as for emergency EmComm and SHTF uses. We’ll also be releasing a replacement for the 905G with an IP67 submersible case for even more reliable outdoor all-weather uses in the near future (join the email QST to be notified when it comes out). 

The Wouxun KG-UV9G works fine with the RT Systems UV9D Advanced Programming Software & Cable Kit that I sell (or the new free Wouxun factory software, downloadable above (requires optional USB cable), and the 9G will accept any program from the UV9D Plus or 9P (but with Tx locked to GMRS). The optional slimmer 2000 mAh battery pack from the original UV9D & UV9D Plus is also compatible with the UV9G for a lighter, more compact package. Check out all of the Wouxun 9-Series Accessories, which are all interchangeable.

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). NEWS FLASH: The FCC has agreed to lower the GMRS license fee to $35, expected in the next month or so. More details to come.

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 (so 2 radios or 1 radio with an extra battery). Orders with 3 or more Li-ion battery packs in a box must be sent by Priority-Mail surface transport, which may take longer than the normal 2-3 days. Packages weighing over 5 pounds will need to be split up into multiple shipments. Sometimes the shopping cart doesn’t properly calculate this, but I will contact you if there’s any need for additional shipping on larger orders. Contact me if you have any questions.



The BSR-Exclusive Wouxun KG-UV9G is a 999 channel programmable dual-band handheld analog double-conversion superheterodyne FM GMRS two-way radio transceiver with wide 7-band receive range, TDR (true dual receive), repeater capability (with CTCSS/DCS split-tones and non-standard PL tones), and pro features ideal for families, scouts, SHTF preppers, survivalists, off-roaders, truckers, businesses, or EmComm emergency communication groups. It has 2.5 kHz tuning steps and comes custom pre-programmed with 877 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 (link above – requires optional USB cable) or the advanced programming software & USB cable kit (by RT Systems).

With up to 5.5 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, camping, scouting, 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 & 15B FCC Certified. The UV9G is custom power calibrated for GMRS simplex & repeater use (at a 465 MHz center) and transmits on all 30 GMRS frequencies with the proper legal power and modulation bandwidth.

The UV9G comes pre-programmed with 4 ready-to-use banks of repeater channels that you can easily set the PL tones for from the front panel. This is handy when you want to program in all the available repeaters in 4 geographical areas without having to re-program on the fly every time. Due to FCC GMRS and radio firmware restrictions, the repeater direction and offset features can’t be programmed from the front panel, which is why I provide the 4 pre-programmed repeater banks. However, the 9G can be easily re-programmed via software to add as many GMRS (or other) channels as you desire, or many more repeater banks that you can then customize on the fly. You could use all 999 channels to program 124 banks of all 8 repeater channels, if you want to. Or, turn the radio into an all-receive scanner. It’s totally up to you!
The KG-UV9G operating range is as good or better than any other affordable Commercial/Ham or GMRS radio, even with its included high-gain stock flexible antenna, which is better than most radios in this price range (and above). As well, with an after-market high-gain duck, whip, telescoping, roll-up, mobile mag-mount or base station antenna, you will see a significantly improved talk range, even when communicating with another stock handheld. Using the Wouxun KG-UV9G PRO GMRS with a repeater will greatly extend your potential operating range, even as far as 100+ miles.
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 full legal transmit power, wide 7-band receive range, NOAA WX Weather Rx, FM Broadcast Radio Rx, and a full host of UV9G accessories (available separately).
New GMRS accessories coming soon for the UV9G, such as several highly-tuned GMRS antenna options from Smiley Antenna. Stay Tuned!



FCC Certified GMRS Radio, Repeater Capable & IP55
Great for personal recreation, SHTF (S#it Hits The Fan) survival prepping, business, and emergency EmComm communications for NNW (National Neighborhood Watch), CERT, REACT, GA (Guardian Angels) & EARS (Emergency Assistance Radio Syndicate organized by BetterSafeRadio in Long Beach, CA) municipal and private neighborhood safety groups. Full 4.4–5.5 Watts of transmit power on UHF (limited to 0.5 W on the 467 MHz interstitial channels, as required by FCC Part 95E) for maximum range and impressive GMRS simplex & repeater performance, with IP55 (dust & water jets resistant) rating for outdoor use. Note: I offer custom programming for this radio!
True Dual Receive, Dual-Scanning & Broadcast FM Radio
Allows monitoring two frequencies (in the VFO) or memory channels simultaneously (V+V, U+U, V+U or U+V) in TDR (True Dual Receive) mode. You can also use a “Dual-Watch” mode by setting the second “sub-receiver” to mute when first “main receiver” is actively receiving a signal. And, you can even scan frequencies or channels on both receivers simultaneously so you never miss a call. Great for scanning emergency channels while monitoring a “home” GMRS channel, or even listening to a Broadcast FM Radio station while monitoring GMRS or any other frequency or channel. A single receiver mode is also available for simplified or dedicated operations.
999 Channels, 3 Power Levels, Dual-PTT, VFO & FPP
Easily program up to 999 regular VHF/UHF channel memories with 8-character alpha-numeric tags, and 20 Broadcast FM Radio station memories (1019 channels total). A traditional FPP (Front Panel Programmable) Dual-VFO mode allows you to enter any two frequencies in the radio’s wide Rx range with the keypad at the same time. There are 3 programmable power levels for operating compatibility and flexibility (UHF: 4.4–5.5/2/0.5 W – Custom calibrated for GMRS simplex & repeater operation at a center of 465 MHz). There’s even a handy LED Safety Flashlight and a Stopwatch feature built-in – great for emergencies, recreation & sporting events.
Pro Features & Ample 1 Year Warranty!
The UV9G is an easy to operate radio with its compact size, simple menu system and Front Panel Programming. It includes a kitchen-sink list of advanced features never before contained in a single, high-end GMRS radio, at any price (see Key Features above) – The Wouxun KG-UV9G is the GMRS radio you will EDC (Every Day Carry) or Bug-Out with! Each radio includes an extended-capacity 3200 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery (provides 20+ hours of operation between charges with battery-saver mode; a thinner 2000 mAh battery pack is available separately), 2-4 hour desk charger, a flexible, removable dual-band 8″ high-gain GMRS-Tuned SMA-Male rubber duck antenna for long range comms., a sturdy belt clip with metal screws and threads, a wrist strap, a New English Quick-Start manual addendum & and the original English user manual (from the UV9P, which will be re-written and made available for free in the future). Backed with an impressive manufacturer 1 year limited warranty (on radio, 6 months on battery, charger and accessories), the Wouxun KG-UV9G is the GMRS radio you always wanted!

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). NEWS FLASH: The FCC has agreed to lower the GMRS license fee to $35, expected in the next month or so. More details to come. 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  firmware unlocked version may be available in the future for authorized government use only – Contact me for details.
