Wouxun KG-UV9D (Plus)

BuyTwoWayRadios has announced a new version of the KG-UV9D:
"The KG-UV9D (Plus) has all of the standard features of the KG-UV9D, plus cross-band repeat capability. It also has 6 additional menu items, most of which are related to cross-band repeat configu

While the Plus does look nearly identical to the standard 9D cosmetically, on closer inspection there are noticeable differences. The buttons on keypad of the UV9D are somewhat square, but the buttons on the 9D Plus are rounded. The speaker grill on the Plus is wider, and the knobs on top are shorter and wider. The PTT button looks and feels different as well, with a bit more play on the edges. The chassis of the UV9D Plus is also a little thicker, measuring about a millimeter or so more than the regular 9D.

However, both radios use the same battery, belt clip, desktop charger, case and other accessories, plusthey use the same Kenwood K1 accessory connector, which means if you already have a 9D, adding a 9D Plus to the mix really won't be much of an issue."

  1. Look closely. It is the same form factor as the upcoming KG-D901.

    I LOVE my 9D, and had to order one of these.
