Wouxun Dual-Band Mobile Update


Just received this from Ed at Import Communications:

fyi… KG-UV920R

Wouxun has released a limited number of the mobile radio to dealers. These samples are not FCC Certified yet and do not have the required 2.5 kHz tuning step required for 2013 regulations. SO THE RADIO DOES EXIST.

If no major problems are found when testing these samples, hopefully full production will begin in July.

The costs of these samples are higher than I expected but hopefully the costs will come down when the radio goes into full production.

If you have your name on the reserve list at www.wouxun.us, you will be notified by email when the radio is available to order.

    This is a joke. The radio should have been fully tested and in FCC compliance PRIOR to any release. Also, the radio was supposed to have been out about two years ago. Now we’re told that the price might be somewhat higher than expected. You don’t see the “big three” doing business like this. Wouxun has lost any credibility they had with me.
