Wouxun KG-UV8D: Manual

BuyTwoWayRadios posted the manual for the Wouxun KG-UV8D on their site. Look under "Resources" for the download link.

Apologies, but I've not looked at it yet. If you spot anything interesting in the manual, please drop me an e-mail or post a comment below.


  1. I took a look through it and it mentions that you can now finally turn the backlight on and off using one of the sidekeys, and also, if i understood it correctly you can set one of them to be a second PTT that would transmit on the second VFO instead of having to switch between them. Another thing that jumped out was the fact that the radio will now decode DTMF in addition to encoding it and the radio will have selective calling (which im guessing uses the DTMF)

    Also, the biggest thing, and the feature i am impressed with the most is that the radio seems to have have 999 channels and even has 10 different banks of channels for scanning.
    If that is true, and they have improved the scan speed like everyone is hoping, i will definitely be adding one to my collection.

    One thing that is disappointing however is that it looks like the redesigned the battery, which is disappointing because MTC now sells a 3200mah battery that fits the KGUVD1P which would have been nice to go with this radio, especially while using it as a crossband repeater. Hopefully i am wrong and it is still the same, or they will offer an extra-high capacity battery for this one.

    1. "a second PTT" - that would be cool.

    2. You are correct, the KG-UV8D will use a different battery from the KG-UV6D and KG-UVD1P. It probably goes without saying, but the battery eliminator, charger, and 6-unit charger will be different as well.


  2. We are selling the cheap two way radio AT6666 and other products. ALL are the best price.
