The advanced Wouxun KG-UV9P 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 up to 10 Watts of power and a talk-around range of 1 to 6+ miles (many more when used with repeaters), the KG-UV9P 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-UV9P operating range is as good or better than any other affordable Commercial/Ham radio, even with its included stock flexible antenna, which is 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-UV9P 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-UV9P into a powerful portable communication device, especially with its extra transmit power. With its True Dual Receive, the UV9P 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 10 Watts of transmit power on VHF and 8 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.

  1. I Am Supremely Satisfied: Preliminary review after 24 hours. I’ll update later if anything materially changes.

    I’ve used this radio now on several of the 70cm and 2m repeaters I regularly hang out on. I’ve tried it in optimum (high ground) locations as well as seriously sub-optimum (bottom of a valley) locations. I’ve tried it with the factory “rubber duck” antenna, as well as a higher gain telescoping one, and even one of my Ed Fong J-Poles I purchased here. I should also point out this was an upgrade from one of the really cheap imported radios I’ve been using for months.

    The difference was staggering. I was able to hit and carry on conversations on all the nearby repeaters and even some of the distant (45 miles) ones. The signal gets a bit staticky when I go inside my home, but outside has been fabulous — and I’m mounting my Ed Fong antenna on my roof in a couple of weeks.

    I can very honestly say that for the first time, my connections sound more like a telephone conversation than that of a bad walkie talkie.

    I am supremely satisfied after my first series of “field tests” with this radio, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality handheld radio.

    I will again point out I have no business affiliation here whatsoever. I’m nothing more than a highly satisfied customer — and not just because of the products I’ve purchased, but from the service I’ve gotten from Mark here at BSR. I recommend without reservation.
