I tried the modification from 400-470 to 350-470, the expansion works but there is no transmit at 350-399Mhz. Is there any modification has to be done inside the radio??

That's what seems to happen with the later firmware versions sold, mine does the same.
Though I did just hear that there is now a version that does the J-07 versions properly. If anyone finds one newer than the image posted above please let us know.

Default UVD1P and unlock.exe and com cable

Hi at all,

i've a UVD1P and the program unlock.exe and the com cable for programming.
I start the program and try to read the configuration of radio.
The display blink, the display voltage, but returninug to dispaied frequencies.
After this , on screen appears a message "communication error".

What is the right procedure for use unlock.exe with com cable?
P.s. the puxin com cable it's the same of wouxun com cable?

many Thanks

Roberto iw2evk

Roberto,
I think your problem may be the USB driver you are using, which is fairly common. There are quite a few USB drivers, using the 'correct' one that your computer can work with seems to be the 'trick'.
Another fairly common problem is selecting the correct USB port. Using the control panel and finding out just which port that cable is on, then selecting that port to use, is the 'cure' for that. There are at least one or two programs that will do the changing or setting of that port, one of them is down loadable from the Wouxun internet site (and in the 'Wouxun' thread on this forum, I think).
'Wouxun's programming is NOT exactly very 'Plug-n-play', as you and the rest of us are finding out.

I think I have posted this here before. But the first few times plugging the programming cable into the radio, it may take some effort. I had the connection error when I first plugged my cable in, then after searching the web, it seems this is a common problem with the Wouxun- that it takes a really good push to seat the programming cable in as far as it needs to be- a lot more effort than plugging headphones into the headphone jack on your PC.

Hi,

i don't use usb port : my cable it's com port > radio cable.
So i due use COM port.
But the i receive a comunication error when i try to read or write into the radio.
I try to use the programming utility from wouxun, but the program display the com port, but it's "unselectable" (light grey icon).
Someone have experience to expand frequency range via COM cable and unloc.exe?
Thanks

Roberto iw2evk

Roberto,
I think you will have to go to the 'Window's control panel, then 'Hardware & Sound', and then the 'Device Manager' to see what is the com-ports of your computer. If one of the selectable com-ports the 'Wouxun' programs displays is in use by another device, remove that device by means of the 'Device Manager'. That would be only temporary, until you are finished programming your radio, then the com-port may be returned to the use it was in before you changed it. It is 'complicated' and inconvenient, but I know of no other way of doing it. I think that the program furnished by Wouxun will be changed eventually, or someone will modify it to make things more convenient, but at present, it's how it has to be done.
Good luck.
- 'Doc
