Wouxun KG-UV920R: eBay

Steve pointed out that the KG-UV920R is available on eBay for a mere $389.80. The listing says more than 10 available. You can add a warranty for $53.99.


  1. Yaesu FT-8800R and Kenwood TM-V71A. Similar dual band functions for about the same price or less than the Wouxun. No extra for Yaseu/Kenwood warranty. Why would I buy the Wouxun again?

    1. I'm with you. I cannot figure out their reasoning... maybe it is simply that they cannot produce the radio any cheaper. Although, I have seen more than once the statement that the price will come down as they ramp up manufacturing. If no one buys them at the high price, they may never ramp up production.

    2. I can see this radio being a huge flop because of that. They just don't have the brand recognition that Yaesu and Icom have in order to be competitive. The main thing these Chinese radios have going for them is their low price. Take that away and most people will choose the name brands every time.

  2. The radio is availalbe at 409shop now. $375 shipping included.
