The Powerwerx/Wouxun KG-UV6X is a dual-band, 199-channel commercial handheld. 136-174 and 370-512 receive capable. Includes the 2.5 step for the FCC's 2013 mandated narrow-band compliance, and standard SMA antenna connector. Part 90 certified.
Dealers are marketing these units world-wide - be sure to check with yours as to what the TX and RX frequency ranges are before you purchase. Some of the versions in the US lack the 2.5KHz step size choice from the keyboard (software only for memory channels - which is still quite suitable for a commercial radio) and some lack it completely, which would prevent the radio from accessing US commercial frequencies allocated after 2013.
For use in the US, not all of these radios are FCC Part 90 type accepted. Mske sure yours is appropriately certified for legal use on land mobile frequencies - as well as the 2M and 70CM amateur radio bands by licensed operators. While the radio can technically communicate with radios on the FRS, GMRS and MURS services, if it is not specifically type-accepted for those services, and use on them is illegal in the US. DO NOT upload or post links to "un-lock" programs here. This is a "US-centric" group, and our regulations may be more strict than those in your country regarding "opening up" these commercial HTs.
Some radios have "reverse SMA" antenna connector (common to many Wouxun models) and some have the more traditional standard SMA antenna connector.
