Awesome Radio, very happy with its price, performance, and ease of operation.
I elected not to get the programming cable for the PC, I am glad I did not - as it is not necessary.
The on screen programming is very simple.
I live about 4miles from the main repeater that I use, It get's in and have received reports I am making the trip just fine. (Posted on 6/26/14)
Review: Wouxun UV8D Review by Arrow
Price

Quality
The radio seems slightly narrower and thinner than previous versions. This is a definite step up and it improves the ergonomics of the radio. The PTT button is large and segmented in a way that makes it hard to mistake it for a function button as with the KG-UV3D. The programmable buttons under the PTT are also cool. You can program it to activate the FM radio or to start scanning, for example. Very easy to customize.
The battery is different which is a little disappointing for those of us who have a collection of older Wouxun batteries, but I like the changes they’ve made to the way it slides on and off the chassis. (Posted on 5/16/14)
