One of the most common questions people ask is how far can I communicate? Unfortunately asking this question is along the lines of asking, “How far is up?”. There are lots of variables involved and no easy, definitive answer.

An important factor in the distance a two-way radio will communicate is its power output, the power of the radio is identified in watts. The wattage plays an important role in how far your signal travels.

The Wouxun KG-UV86 has two power modes, 1 watt and 7 watt. An output of 7 watts can theoretically reach 20+ miles in the right conditions. However there are many factors to take into consideration such as, line-of-sight, weather, frequency and obstructions.

*Please note: The figures shown are average distances that should be achievable with real world use. In many situations the distances will be much higher than this. However, as there are so many variable factors, the distances shown cannot be guaranteed.

We get asked this question all the time. The correct way to pronounce Wouxun is “O-sheng”

‘W’ means world.

‘OU’ means ‘Singing’, representing the tone of Wouxun products is like a beautiful song.

‘XUN’ means communication.

The completed ‘WOUXUN’ logo means that the Wouxun company always trys to provide communication equipment with excellent tone to users, all over the world.

    Do not confuse this radio with ‘other’ Chinese offerings. I have one of the ‘other’ brands and in comparison the Wouxun stands head and shoulders above it. To hold, it has the feel of the high end manufactures in comparison to my other radio which in comparison now feels like a toy. It performs really well and comes with a descent aerial as standard. This radio paired with the JAL PRO-COM headset out performed all other radios/headsets on a recent outing with friends.
