Wouxun go mobile with the KG-UV920R


Alerted by posts by Patrick, WA0TDA and Steve, GW7AAV, I see that Wouxun have announced an entry into the mobile rig market, with their KG-UV920R rig covering 144/432MHz.

Based on the coverage that Steve mentions in his post, there is FM receive from 65-220MHz - so this rig could receive on 70MHz too! In fact, reading the posts, I was wondering whether Wouxun will, in time, consider a 70MHz capable mobile rig.

The Wouxun portables have proved excellent and I am looking forward to hearing more about the mobile rig in due course.

Good spot with regard 70MHz RX, I had not made the connection. I would not be surprised to see a 70MHz capable mobile from them soon following this one. There is a clue in the details on the Wouxun site, it says "available in various types". So maybe the option of the 220MHz band for the US with either 144 or 433 or maybe all three. So who knows maybe 70MHz may be another option, if not in the first model maybe later.
If they do a rig that covers five bands (10/6/4/2/70cm) they might get killed in the rush.

Hi Steve,

It definitely looks promising with the 'other types'. I'd love to see them do something on 23cms too!
