George Lamprecht: I have a constant failed connection. I have looked at the com port and it is 6 on my computer. Any ideas?
ricardo Amaral: Hi!
I have the same problem than you..
download from prolific site: PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v1.8.0.zip
James Hawkins: I'm using Windows 7
James Hawkins: I have tried many times to get this software to work and can't get it to read or write. I have downloaded the most recent drivers and still nothing. When I check the Device Manager, it has the little yellow "triangle of death." If I tell windows to update the driver, it tells me that the driver is the up to date. Very frustrating.
dkdavid721: I need help. When I go to change the com port all of them are greyed out and I can't change anything. I verified that the driver is installed correctly that isn't the problem and I don't know what else could be causing it.
setofirons: will this work on a mac?????
Joe Noneya: Is there anyway to make these radios recieve the 800-900MHz?
Mike A Drover: Help!! Just got it Help
blewbot: The KG-UV3D
Steve Marshall: Which radio are you using?
fdiaz05: Anyone have an issue with the speaker? It was coming in intermittently for a while and now the radio will only work with a headset plugged in, no built in speaker? Is there a setting or did I just get a dud?
punisher101002: great video thank you 2w0lmm 73s
videosbymike: can you program this radio if you have a mac computer?
Glock n Load,
JC Haywire: I love my "Walks On." As far as I can tell, it is pronounced "Ou-shun" like the big salty bodies of water. The big ones. I wish I had watched this awesome vid before trying to program my walks-on UV2D. I used to have the YAY-zoo but sold it to buy two of these suckers. I was not sorry. Best 73, Jonathan KC7FYS/7J1AWL
tshay65: Man oh man - I wish that I would have watched your video first. Just passed my Technician test and bought a Wouxun KG-UV6D radio. I have just fought the 'Failed Connection' error for a couple of hours. Found other driver downloads - downloaded them. Unistalled the software - reinstalled it - Failed Connection. You said 'make sure to press the cable in firm' - CRAP! Pushed a little more on mine and it went in just a little further. DANG!
KD8EGV: I own many HT radios. I recently purchased the Wouxun KG-UVD1P on Ebay for $105 USD. The items was purchased from RadioAccessoryShop in Hong Kong and was shipped to my location in Ohio USA in 8 days! For the money this is truly one heck of a radio. This is the perfect radio for a beginner HAM or GMRS users. Programing the radio is a breeze if you use the software and cable. My only recommendation is getting a longer dual band antenna. No issues to report so far
THEOLDGATOR1: Thanks for the GREAT video! Just got a KG-UV3D and your video sure made it a snap to program the radio.

blewbot: I read that you have to use a "-" dash or minus sign... but i have not had luck figuring it out. let me know if it works for you.
ENC016: can anyone tell me how to put a space in the channel name? i read it somewhere but forgot where it was or how too.
laurak59: When I look up my arrl repeator directory it would say repeater freq 146.8650 ,repeater input - negative, ctcss 146.2. My question is on the wouxun software. the rx freq, the tx freq, the decode and encode. Where does the arrl info get placed within the wouxun. The ctcss is the encode or decode and is the repeator freq of 146.8650 the rx frq?
mickeyzee43: Great vid! Just a comment on connection failed message. I had a terrible time with those failure messages and finally determined it to be the radio end of the cable. A little rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball cleaned it right up. Hasn't missed since.
BlackAdder719: i've got this one too, I don't know how to figure it out
BlackAdder719: very nice, i've got to buy the cable, setting up channels directly from the radio is a little messy
Matthew Camp: I have programmed to the frequencies to my county bands and I get the message Channel 1 Message out of Range. Any idea on how to fix this?
Artifex: Nice video, but I must add a detail: Wouxun is not pronounced as wou-xun but in chinese it's pronounced as wou-shin (quite similar pronounciation as the word "ocean" in english)
Steve Blevins: Nice video. I have yet been able to get mine programmed yet, it will not work what so ever on xp. Gonna try my luck with a vista machine in few days.
ANyone have the most updated software and drivers for it?
Vito Marques: Hello i have a Dynascan DB-48, is it the same software??? Is it possible to programm frequencies like 470Mhz our 119Mhz??? Thank you
John Wilkerson: Nicly done video. You are right.. ALWAYS do a read first. I use Windows 7 and have had some issues... BTW: COM4 is not *always* the port it finds... BUT again, I use win7, so you may be right.
Good tutorial... Perhaps you will give a review of how your radio works and all that... Hey try AO51 and AO27 satellites :) Yes... the HTs work on them :) 73 John
