Update from Wouxun

Posted by & filed under , .

They have confirmed that the flat cable included with the radio does not provide adequate shielding ( which we already knew ).  They have replaced it with a standard CAT5 cable and RJ45 connectors. I have done the same and noticed quite a reduction in the DC noise in the audio when my truck is […]

Some people have messaged me saying that they can’t import an excel file without getting an error like the one below.  It may not be exactly but close to this depending on how many rows you have in the sheet. That’s because every cell in the spreadsheet needs to be preceded by a ‘ like […]

Initial Review on KG-UV920R
