Wouxun KG-UV920R - "Still testing"
News about the Wouxun KG-UV920R Dual-Band Mobile ham radio is not very encouraging. It had been expected to be in the shops by now but the only information coming out of China (8th March 2011) is that their engineers are "Still testing". No release dates and no prices yet. Last I heard was they were rumoured to be waiting for FCC approval, so the suspicion is they have some issues with meeting the approval and need to sort those and reapply, which could mean a long wait for what is hoped to be a real bargain market buster. Still, I think we would all rather have a nice RF clean rig tomorrow rather than a cheap but dodgy one today. There is a growing group of people who think this radio is a myth, but delays of this kind are common in the industry.
