1 Wouxun KG-U3VD HT Roger Reini, KD8CSE March 8, 2012

2 Overview Wouxun (O-Shing) is a Chinese electronics manufacturer that has made a name for itself with low-cost commercial and amateur HT transceivers Popular items at Dayton Hamvention, vendors sell out

3 Overview of KG-U3VD Dual-band transceiver Available in 2m/220 MHz or 2m/70cm models Receives from 76-108 MHz, 136-174 MHz, 216-280 MHz (220 version), 350-470 MHz (one 440 version), 420-520 MHz (other 440 version) Power: VHF, 5W/1W; UHF, 4W/1W

4 Features of KG-U3VD 1700 mAh battery 128 memory locations A bright LED flashlight VOX More info: m/wouxun-radios/kg-uv3d- dual-band.html#desc m/wouxun-radios/kg-uv3d- dual-band.html#desc

5 Quirks of KG-U3VD Antenna connector is SMA but reversed: male is recessed in body, antenna uses female 3 rd -party accessory availability increasing Manual programming VERY difficult; most resort to programming via computer, which is fairly simple

6 Programming the KG-U3VD Windows-only software Bare-bones, but gets the job done Table format makes it easy to enter the frequencies, PL tones, etc. Again, offsets are not automatically calculated

10 My Experience Manual programming is very difficult (I wouldn’t bother, frankly), but programming via PC and USB cable is easy Have to program the offset frequencies yourself; you can program incorrect offsets if you’re not careful Default value on time-out timer (60 s) is too short; affected my net participation. Can be changed, though Performance is good on 2m and on 220 MHz Price point makes it a very attractive buy
