WLN KD-C1: Range Testing

Testing the range of the WLN KD-C1:

I noticed it is up to $25 - I think when I first started posting about it, you could get it for $20 on Amazon.

WLN KD-C1: M3HHY Review

Lewis, M3HHY, reviews the WLN KD-C1:
"I tested out some repeaters and managed to open repeater 20 miles away from inside the house on that tiny antenna! The audio is loud and clear on both TX and RX too. All in all I'm really pleased with this radio, the slim design, white body and ease of use makes it a nice back pocket radio for monitoring and the odd QSO."
I am also a fan of the orange and white.

I meant to post this last week as there was a nice little discussion about the WLN KD-C1 on Facebook and Twitter last week.

Desmond ( / @dcrisis) shares that he likes the WLN KD-C1 over the BF-888. It's always nice to hear from someone that's had their hands on the radio - even if it is only ~$20 to try one out.

WLN KD-C1: 440 Plus a 220 Mod?

I thought I had posted about the WLN KD-C1, but I can't find it anywhere. Maybe I ignored it, because it is a simple 16-channel UHF (400-470 MHz). It's cheap at $19 bucks. (And you could get one in orange and white.)

And for those that like to live dangerously, you can try VE3PZR's software mod to add 220 MHz:
"I suspect it puts out spurs in the 440 MHz band." 
"A simple test on 223.580 with a friend with a real 220 MHz radio proved that the radio transmits some power. He was able to hear me but I was not able to hear him. He was about 8KMs away."
Interesting, but TX without RX strikes me as not very useful. I'd rather have the RX only if I got to pick.
