haven't tried, I'm just fine with the 134-174 and 420-520 range seeing as I've picked up the local RCMP in the 138 band

You shouldn't have to. We picked up fire/police channels out of the box, even an ERT bust.

Would you not want to receive in the full frequency spectrum.?

I don't want to transmit beyond the radio's capability but I like to open it's full capabilities on the receive side.


VHF very high frequency 30MHz to 300MHz
UHF ultrahigh frequency 300MHz to 3000MHz

If the radio does not have the circuitry to receive on the other freqs then it will not.

Seeing as these were built with the intent to sell for profit, I doubt that they spent the extra money on capabilities that they did not want to sell.

The VHF and UHF Bands are VERY big, most of the bands are licensed and forbidden to transmit on. Selling a radio that can use freqs that people will never legally transmit on would be a waste of money to the seller and the consumer. The 4W radios we all have technically should not make it into the country.

If you want to listen to everything your best bet would be to get a proper scanner, Uniden makes some great ones.

For local pd/fd/amateur/business freqs you can check out http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?coid=2

That site also has live streams.

The Wouxun will unlock for a wide range of VHF and UHF frequencies (not 0 to 999--even though you can set it to that), but it seems that they are tuned for the factory set frequencies. When I unlocked mine, I would get strong receive and weak transmit or vice versa the farther I got from the factory programmed range.

Note that if you use the KG-UV Commander software, and try to program a frequency outside of your factory set range, it will prompt you to see if you want to expand your frequency range to include that frequency.

Im going to leave the transmit set at factory setting's but I like to expand the receive side would you so kind in telling me how far it can be expanded with out getting to far out of band before it become's to weak to receive. You can say Im looking for the outer limits of the band.

I have the Commander software as well as the factory software and the unlock program but yet to try it until I learn a little more about expanding the receive side of the unit.

But I been reading it will go down so far to pick up airports in 122 VHF

I think it's 15 over/under for VHF and 50 over/under for UHF out of band for receiving.
