The Wouxun KG-UV9G is a firmware-modified & GMRS-calibrated version of the revered and trusted Wouxun KG-UV9P & Wouxun KG-UV9D Plus amateur radios, co-designed by Mark Lindsey (K6LED/WQXR567) and sold exclusively by BetterSafeRadio. The Wouxun 9-Series radios known for their quality double-conversion superheterodyne receivers, performance & pro features, while remaining easy to use, even for beginners. The new 9G GMRS is functionally similar, with a few modified features that are restricted, prohibited or unwanted on the GMRS band, such as the cross-band repeater, power levels, modulation bandwidth, roger beep, and SOS & siren alarms.
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 new IP67 submersible GMRS radio for even more reliable outdoor all-weather uses in the future (join the email QST to stay informed).
The Wouxun KG-UV9G unofficially works with the RT Systems UV9D Advanced Programming Software & Cable Kit, and the 9G will accept any program from the UV9D Plus or 9P (but with Tx locked to GMRS). Stay tuned for a new UV9G version of the RT Systems software, coming soon (but note that the current version for sale on their site is buggy and not 100% compatible yet, and NOT supported by BSR)!
The optional slimmer 2000 mAh battery pack from the original UV9D & UV9D Plus is also compatible with the UV9G for a lighter, thinner body. Check out all of the Wouxun 9-Series Accessories, which are all interchangeable.
Note: Transmitting on the GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) requires a “no-test” license (currently $70 for 10 years and good for your entire immediate family – typically takes only a few days to obtain your GMRS license from the FCC). NEWS FLASH: The FCC has recently decided to lower the GMRS licensing fee to $35. The new fee schedule rules have been published in the Federal Register, but it’s unclear when their system will start charging the new rates, but hopefully it will be in effect in the next few months.
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, in each box Priority Mail air shipment). 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 with batteries and accessories (without radios) 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/bulk orders. Unfortunately, this GMRS radio is not legal for use in Canada, so I am not able to honor orders that ship to Canada at this time. 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 876 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 programming software (link above – requires optional USB cable & x86 Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10) or the RT Systems UV9D Advanced Programming Software & USB Cable Kit.
With up to 5.5 Watts of power (on UHF) and a talk-around range of 2 to 7+ miles (much more when used with a GMRS repeater or at optimal elevations with minimal line-of-sight obstructions), 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.
Note: The KG-UV9G “Lite” version (available while supplies last at a discounted price) is calibrated to 2 W on channels 1-7 for better FRS compatibility. The normal 9G PRO operates at 5 W on channels 1-7. Both versions offer 5.5 W on the GMRS Main channels 15-30.
Note that when the UV9G is reset using the [MENU_61 “RESET”] function, the radio will reset to a default configuration of all 30 GMRS channels, including the 8 repeater channels, which you can then customize the PL/Privacy Tones on as desired. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation and need to restore basic GMRS functionality quickly, this reset feature will get you there in a few seconds. Note that performing this RESET will wipe all pre-programmed SHTF channels, so make sure you have a backup of the programming before resetting the radio.
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).
Check out all of the UV9G PRO GMRS accessories, such as the highly-tuned GMRS antenna options from Smiley Antenna.
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 5.5 Watts of transmit power on UHF (limited to 0.5 W on the 467 MHz interstitial channels and 5 W on the 462 interstitials, 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 but it comes programmed for SHTF Prepping by default!
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.
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: 5.5/5/0.5 W (5.5/2/0.5 W on “Lite” version, while supplies last) – 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.
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 24+ 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.
*IMPORTANT: This radio is meant for personal or business use by licensed GMRS operators during normal or emergency “SHTF” (S#it Hits The Fan) situations.
