How the Quad Band KG-UV980H/980P radios handle frequencies

Modified on Fri, 10 Nov 2023 at 03:53 PM

The Wouxum KG-UV980H Quad Band radio handles frequencies differently on its right and left sides.

Only the left side handles ALL of the bands (actually, there are more than four) listed on page 3 of the User's Manual for the radio.

The right side of the radio handles only 2 meters and 440 MHz frequencies.

What does that mean for you... Memory channels you have programmed for 6 Meter and 10 Meter repeaters will not show up on the right side. The radio will skip over these channels when the knob is turned or during scanning on the right side. There is nothing wrong with the radio or how the Programmer put the channels into it. This is just the design of the radio (as it was with others like it.)

Note: There is a misprint in the information of the manual. The "108.000 - 179.995" MHz range actually goes from "108.000 - 175.995" MHz. This can be verified using the VFO on the radio.
