    Some retailers selling the Wouxun KG-UV8D are limiting the frequency range of the Wouxun KG-UV8D. The radio's transmit range is easily modified using any of the standard Wouxun programming cables along with the appropriate software. The software necessary to expand the TX range is attached to this thread.



    After you download and install the software (assuming you have the programming cable driver properly installed), you will see the following screen upon launch:

    The Down Arrow downloads the radio's frequency range to the computer. The first line of each group (430M & 144M) is the radio's capable frequency range. The second line is the current configured transmit range. You can change these to be anything within the bandwidth specified by the radio's capability. All you have to do is change the second line in each group to the desired band limits. Press the Up arrow to write the changes to the radoi.
