Oddly there is no information on the Wouxun website about this model and the only details seem to be on this site


  1. çince ingilizce var ama niçin türkçe kullanım kılavuzu yok bu cihaz türkiyede dahafazla satılacak 920R nezaman tr’ye gelir

    • Seni Wouxun KG-UV920R Türkiye’de satışa sunulacak zaman bilmek istiyorum düşünüyorum. Üzgünüm! Henüz burada hiçbir bilgi.

      I think you want to know when the Wouxun KG-UV920R will be on sale in Turkey. Sorry! no details here yet.

  2. This is a special version made for them. My understanding is:

    1. US bands only

    2. Lager battery

    3. Slightly redesigned case.

    • Thanks for the info.
