I just received my KG-U1P and it's a J08 serial number. I set the receive and transmit limits to 350-520 using the updated unlock program attached to the first post of this thread. I have confirmed with my scanner that it will actually transmit from 420-520MHz (I used low power inside a Faraday cage ).

The receive range is the same, 420-520MHz. I ran the scan function from 350 up with the squelch set very low and it picked up nothing until it hit 420 and immediately stopped scanning when it picked up stray noise.

The Serial Number sticker under the battery lists the radio's freq range from 136.000-174.995 & 420.000 - 519.995.

What a cool little radio. I can see why this thread has such a high view count. It's too bad the "vfo" function is such a pain--"Menu" "21" "Menu" select "Freq" or "Name," "Menu."

I got mine in three days from Ed at wouxun.us for $107 + shipping.

So far I'm very impressed.

FYI...

I used version 1KG-xxx-unlock.exe with WINE in Ubuntu 10.04 and it worked perfectly.

Does anyone know the upper and lower limits for Tx/Rx for this device? I just purchased a KG-UVD1P with a serial number starting with J08. I can successfully program the device with a range of 30-300 Tx/Rx for VHF and 350-520 Tx/Rx for UHF. I then tried to transmit / receive at 46.100 but could not. I am a firefighter, and am checking with one of our radios. Is it limited by the antenna, or is it an internal circuitry issue?

benering, are you 'sure' it's actually working on the extended frequencies at all ?

Mine works fine on the display, but in reality receives nothing and sends nothing when 'out of band' by so much as a kHz. That was with the original FW posted. The newer one does not even read the original bands from the radio properly now. (hoping there will be an update for J07/J08 FW eventually)

No. Not sure. Either update let me change the display so that I could enter a frequency that was above/below the original limits, but tx/rx on those frequencies would not happen, so I guess I am in the same boat you are!

Thanks for the response!

136-174 & 420-520 (RX/TX)
136-174 & 400-470 (RX/TX)
136-174 & 350-470 (RX/TX)

I've attached an updated version of the 1KG-xxx-unlock.exe file. It does the same thing as the one previously posted by Moleculo but this one has been translated to English:

73, aa9az

One thing I like about this program is the ability to actually "restrict" frequencies. While many may want to go out of band, I want to ensure that no one grabbing my radio can do that (at least on transmit).

For me, I found that setting 144-147 and 430-449 was more than enough to ensure no one could transmit out of band, while leaving the receive function totally open. When using 147 it actually gives access right up to 147.999, and likewise for UHF.
