The KG-UV8D is a compact, high-performance dual-band handheld amateur radio transceiver with large LCD color display providing up to 5 Watts of RF power on VHF and 4 Watts on UHF, along with high audio output (600 mW).
The KG-UV8D features a long operating time (over 16 hours), thanks to the included long life 1700 mAh high capacity Li-ion battery pack. The KG-UV8D has a built-in cross-band repeat capability. In addition the KG-UV8D features Full Duplex operation to transmit at the same time you are receiving on to opposite band. A new color LCD screen displays everything you need to know and includes the IP55 water resistant rating. The KG-UV8D uses a new model Li-ion battery and drop in charger and is not interchangeable with previous Wouxun models. All Wouxun speaker mics, lapel mics and earpieces (KG-UV3D, KG-UV6X, DB-16X) are compatible with the new KG-UV8D.
