Wouxun KG-UV9P Amateur Ham Two-Way Radio & SHTF Scanner
The new updated KG-UV9PX with added features is almost here. You can place an order for this UV9P now and request an upgrade ($20 more) in the order shipping instructions (or email me with your Order #) to get in line now for the new model, which is expected to start shipping in May. Contact me for feature details.
The High-Power Wouxun KG-UV9P U.S. version provides reliable dual-band EmComm emergency radio communications for amateurs/hams, SHTF preppers, survivalists, Neighborhood Watch, ARES, RACES & CERT groups to keep in touch when other methods of communication break down. This BSR 9P version offers more power (up to 9 W – 8.35 W typical) with custom power calibration (for the ham band centers), includes an extended-capacity 3200 mAh Li-ion battery, and has a different front grill than the older KG-UV9DPlus, but is otherwise functionally identical, with dual high-quality dual-conversion superheterodyne receivers.
Note: The UV9P works fine with the RT Systems UV9D Advanced Programming Software (or the free factory software), and the 9P will accept any program from the 9D(Plus) if you’re looking to simply upgrade your power and operating time. The slimmer 2000 mAh battery pack from the UV9DPlus is also compatible with the 9P.
ReadySafeGo™ pre-programmed for SHTF* with 917 channels! ($30+ Value!) – See PDF programming chart in description!

Custom Programming & Consulting Available! Not sure what you need? Contact us and we’ll be happy to help!
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 5.5 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. Contact me if you have any questions.
Note: The UV9P can be RESET by a keypad Menu option. Doing so will return the radio to a default limited/foreign MODEL1 configuration and will delete all of the pre-programmed SHTF channels. You can put the radio back into the US MODEL2 configuration by power the radio up while the #2 key is held down. However, this will not restore the SHTF programming. Please save a backup your radio codeplug (programming file) using the free Wouxun factory software and the “red” Wouxun USB cable (sold separately) or the RT Systems Advanced Programming Software & USB Cable Kit (sold separately) in case you ever unintentionally RESET the radio. If you’ve accidentally RESET your radio, please see the restoration options on my Custom Radio Programming Services page here.
The advanced Wouxun KG-UV9P is a 999 channel U.S. version 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 2.5 kHz tuning steps and comes custom pre-programmed for SHTF* (ships with Tx locked to Ham bands only for Part 97 Amateur Radio compliance). User programmable with free downloadable Wouxun programming software (link above – requires optional USB cable & x86 Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or 11, or a Mac running Parallels) or the RT Systems UV9D Advanced Programming Software & USB Cable Kit.
With up to up to 9 Watts of power (8W+ typical) 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, preppers, 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 BSR version of the UV9P has custom power calibration (for the ham band centers) that’s better suited to the US market, which you won’t find elsewhere.
Great for SHTF (S#it Hits The Fan) Survival preppers and Amateur Radio (Ham) communications, including CERT, ARES, RACES & SKYWARN. Up to 9 Watts of transmit power on VHF (8W+ typical) and 8+ Watts on UHF for maximum range. Comes pre-programed for SHTF Prepping by default!
Allows monitoring two communication channels simultaneously (V+V, U+U, V+U or U+V) in TDR mode (can also set sub-receiver to mute when main receiver is active). 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 or use the Priority Scan feature to always scan a user-defined priority channel in the background, so you never miss a call. Great for scanning emergency channels while monitoring a “home” Ham channel, or even listening to a Broadcast FM Radio station while monitoring 2m or 70cm FM Call 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 FM Broadcast Radio station channels (1019 channels total). 3 programmable power levels for operating flexibility (VHF: 8+/5/2 W, UHF: 8+/5/2 W – Custom calibrated for BSR). There’s even a bright LED flashlight built-in – handy for emergencies.
Easy to operate radio with its compact size, simple menu system and Front Panel Programming. Each radio includes an extra-capacity 3200 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery (provides 20+ hours of operation between charges with battery-saver mode), 2-4 hour desk charger, flexible dual-band 8″ rubber duckie antenna for long range comms., belt clip, wrist strap & user manual. Backed with impressive 1 year limited warranty (on radio, 6 months on battery and charger).
Note: Amateur Radio (Ham) operation requires an FCC license. The Wouxun KG-UV9P is not “type-accepted” for use on other bands such as GMRS, FRS, MURS, MMS, LMR, etc. See the KG-UV9G, new upgraded KG-UV9GX, or KG-916 GMRS for legal GMRS operation.
IMPORTANT: There have been some reports recently that the threads in the included BLO-012 battery’s threaded holes may have some debris left over from the manufacturing process that Wouxun is working on rectifying. In the meantime, please use caution when attaching the belt clip. If you encounter resistance when driving in the screw, back the screw out slightly and then back in, going slightly deeper with each drive, to “clean” out the screw heads. This should loosen up the screw without having to apply enough torque that could shear off the screw head. You can also request to have your belt clip pre-installed by leaving a note in the order instructions when you checkout.
*IMPORTANT: This radio is meant for personal use by licensed amateur radio operators during normal or emergency “SHTF” (S#it Hits The Fan) situations. Although our radios come programmed for Part 97 compliance with transmit locked to only the Ham bands, you are ultimately and solely responsible for operating this device in compliance with FCC licensing and regulations, regardless of how it comes programmed. For EmComm use, consult your COML regarding device compliance before any official public service operation. The free downloadable custom programming software made available for this radio by the manufacturer is for use by service technicians authorized or licensed to reprogram the radios for any given radio service. We are not responsible for any harm or loss caused by the use or misuse of this device. Please let us know if you have any compliance questions before purchasing.
