J Doe: yw, but Is there a way to unlock it so that you can get those freq?
J Doe: I have one. I love it. would like to get another. We had family radio ,but the battery's did not last long at all. They eat them like pac man. But this radio lasted for a couple days after before charging the battery. I was looking at the Wouxun KG-UV6X_ Dualband Radio
409shop409: are you buy this radio???
your radio have any problem??
J Doe: how come you can not use everything between 136-174? Is there a way to unlock it so that you can get those freq?
Dakota Hourie: Actually in my experience, the only difference is cosmetic.
I've seen the standard UV-5R design have very new firmwares, to some very old ones. I have also seen some of the "other models" have very old firmware.
Basically, the date of manufacture will determine what firmware it runs, If you had all UV-5R "models" that just happened to be made on the same day, they would all have the same firmware, and the only difference would be cosmetic.
jinkjack: Different firmware which cannot be updated!
J Doe: sorry wrong post. IDK. I had asked the something.
409shop409: this radio Output power 4W / 1W (Max 5W)
Tony Wang: The new design looks tacky and like a toy talki. I prefer the look of last generation.
409shop409: no~ all functions are same, just outward appearance just outlook different
Theodore Davis: Dose the new version have a better rf sensitivity ? My original one had an issue that anything would open the squelch it seemed to have a very weak front end .
Theodore Davis: How much are you asking for the UV-5RA
BadBoyNewsTacoma: Hmm due these work for scanning police channels, Aircraft etc also...???
J Doe: okay - thanks
409shop409: the max output is 4watts
J Doe: on Amazon is say its output is 5 watts. It is the 2013. IT has more power or it that a typo?
