The KG-UVD1P Wouxun Radio is absolutely awesome. Small, compact with lots of power and many extras which make your load lighter. I purchased this radio from a friend, whom has more radios than he needs. I feel fortunate to get this item. The dual band function works great. I live about 12 miles from a VHF repeater and can access the repeater with no problem. The UHF repeater is closer, but I am sure it will work equally as well.
Items like the LED flash light is a plus.
