So using this radio now for a few weeks I get the same complaint over and over.  My audio is too low.  Has anyone else looked into this or had this issue? I spoke to Wouxun and their answer was the following. “Would you please check the setting of MENU 41 ? Please set the […]

I was on my local repeater last night and had a simplex channel that I use with a few friends in the area.  Anyway… I noticed that when I have a conversation going on on one VFO the second doesn’t rx anything.  They were both VHF.  Can anyone else confirm that or was it just […]

I’ve spoken to Wouxun in China over Skype and have sent them the list of deficiencies that we have all had.  I will be sending them video of the RF noise coming from the alternator that I don’t get with my other Kenwood or ICOM rigs as well as some tips on how to improve […]
