That is cool to know.
Sure glad the name of the radio isn't 'Wouxit' . . .

Check out Ed's site - you can listen to Wouxun being pronounced.

Let's see they have very poor adjacent channel rejection for starters most are off frequency out of the box..... You get what you pay for.....

Default New Ronson UV-8r: same as Baofeng UV-5r?

I bought a Baofeng UV-r5 a month or so ago and am very pleased with it. I got the programming cable a use Chirp programming software with it ans my Yaesu 857d. My opinion on the UV-5r is it is an excellent radio, I use it by itself with rubber ducky antenna or connected to a magnet roof mount 144 and 440 antenna or connected to my beam when I am hooked to my dialysis machine. I don't have any complaints works fine for 60 bucks to me..

Can you post a link to the Chirp your using . The software I found is not working, it's Chirp, but may have an earlier build.
