Wouxun KG-UVD1P A great radio for the price.

Wouxun KG-UVD1P Package

Recently I purchased a Wouxun KG-UVD1P radio.  My main reason was that it was a inexpensive radio that was part 90 certified and had VHF UHF Dual band including HAM bands.  Construction is great and it appears to be just as rugged if not more so than my TK-3180 and TK-380.   ...

It's much smaller, has much better battery life, and it has the VHF band.  The only things I don't like about the radio is that the scan function has to be turned on each time you activate a function on the radio.  I programmed the PF1 button to turn on scan.  The USB programming cable is a bit of trouble since you have to wiggle it around a bit for detection.  My biggest complaint overall is lack of ability to change any scan options without reprogramming. Everything else can be done from the radio but if you want to change scan settings you have to hook it up to programming software.  I'm hoping they release some new firmware to add that one feature.
