Wouxun KG-UV920R: Are you a betting man?

I'm not saying it won't show up next month. I'm not saying it won't show up at all. It has just been too long in coming for me to want to put any money on it. I'll stick with safer bets like sub-prime mortgages.

If the normal pricing system is followed, that probably means the price in N. America should be around US$250 - The UK sellers can never understand the correct exchange rate!

(G3OCR rushes off to poke the knife through the slot in the piggy-bank to see how much money is in there!)


  1. Mmm... $250,- that is more then I expected.
    We will see...

  2. A Dutch amateur radio-shop now writes also that the Wouxun radio will be available in July, price still unknown.

  3. I'm beginning to believe it will actually show up. I'm on the waiting list at Import Communications... I guess it will soon be decision time. Given the nature of the early versions to have a few bugs, I'm thinking about waiting a few months. It is one thing to buy a $50 HT... $250 on the mobile makes me more cautious.
