A draft of an instruction manual for programming the Wouxun KG-UV6D dual-band radio from its keypad (field programming) is now available on Scribd and downloadable as a PDF. These radios are used by the Sheriff's Auxiliary and we have organized bulk purchases within the community.
The Wouxun KG-UV6D is a hand-held 2-way dual band (VHF/UHF) radio targeted at Amateur Radio (HAM) and Part 90 (Commercial and Public Service) use. It is an inexpensive Chinese import which provides a lot of features at a very low price. You get what you pay for, however, and among its limitations are a very confusing menu system and poor English documentation. Programming the radio from its handset can require much trial and error. This article tries to make that task a bit easier and less confusing. A separate article will deal with programming the radio from a computer with the provided USB cable.
