Introducing the Wouxun KG-UV8E This dual band, amateur ham radio is the upgrade to the popular KG-UV6D with more powerful features, and extra band to work on (220Mhz),  and the new large colour LCD screen.
The KG-UV8E operates at 5W (4W UHF). It features over 900 programmable memory channels compatible with both simplex and repeater pairs. Standard repeater tones are also available (CTCSS / PL) and you can set the frequency shift for + or - to either than standard 600Hz / 5kHz or set your own, perfect for working satellites with an odd offset.
The KG-UV8E also has duplex cross-band repeat built in. Great for setting up your own temporary repeater, for example at a camp ground. You can also receive two signals at the same time on the same band, great for monitoring a calling frequency while in a QSO on your favourite repeater. 
The KG-UV8E is packed with all the features you would expect to find in a ham radio. Channel Name edit and display, Dual Standby, 76-108Mhz FM radio, DTMF encoding, low voltage voice prompt. 
The KG-UV8E is powered by 7.4v 1700mAh high capacity Li-Ion battery pack for maximum uptime during operation. Power saver mode helps increase efficiency and preserve battery life, great for when working public service events. Ultra capacity batteries are also available for when additional run time is required.

Other dealers will give you a 30 day return, and then after that your on your own. NOT AT FLEETWOOD! We look after you for the entire duration of the warranty period, ONE FULL YEAR.
