WOUXUN KG-UV6D

Hello and welcome back......In the value for money dept, this radio gets all the ticks.
Chinese company"Wouxun" sell several handheld and base/mobile units to suit all flavors.
The quality that I have heard is second to none, very high, as is the reliability of their products.
The unit I will focus on is the KG-UV6D, its a hand-held unit with awesome specs, what interested me is not only can you receive on these units you can also transmit on most channels as well.
Eerr on the side of caution as this could land you in hot water with various officials so don't be an idiot and start transmitting on fire, police channels etc because eventually they will be banned/made Illegal and spoil it for the radio loving community out there.



These units offer dual frequency receive/transmit on 136-174mhz and 420-520mhz ( some radios have other frequencies available like 370-470mhz) check spec before buying because one model number can have several variances.
Also on these radios you get Digital FM radio (76-108MHz) (receive only)....Excellent

The price is mindblowing, these units sell on ebay roughly about $120-150....Stunning

For piece of mind, Andrews Communications in Greystanes NSW sells these units for $169 with oodles of accessories as well, in stock (see link below)

I was hoping to try one of these units but so far none of my emails have been answered by Wouxun, slightly disappointing, hope their customer service is not the same :(
