Programming Software Downloads
Before plugging in a programming cable.....
ALL Chinese programming cables have fake chips in them and require older drivers to make them work correctly. This is especially true if you use VISTA, WIN7, WIN8 or WIN10

USB Drivers & Information
The simple installation of USB cable drivers changed with operating systems after Win-XP. Vista,
Win7, Win8 and Win10 all try to install a driver of their choice instead of one that actually works with
Chinese-made cables. This is because Prolific, the maker of the chip that the Chinese copied,
released a driver that will not work with the Chinese cables. Of course, since Windows is smarter
than us humans, it will automatically install the newest (non-working) driver it can find. Windows
update will also replace an older, working driver, with one of these new non-working ones. For
your Chinese USB cable to work with Vista, Win7, Win8 or Win10, you must force the operating system
to install one of the older drivers. The files and links below will show you how this is done.
Windows 10 Upgrade:
If you recently upgraded to Win10, and are using a Chinese programming cable, your PC will automatically update your Prolific driver. You will need to reload Prolific driver 188.8.131.52 back to your PC.

|This is one of the best hand helds I have ever owned. You need to get the manual down and look it over. There is a lot you can do with it. Great walkie....|
|What a cool little HT. Had it for about a week fell in love with the little rig. Put my Kenwood and Icom up on the shelf. Get one you will love it. Be sure to buy the programming cable makes programming a breeze!|
|Best Bang for your buck.. Great little radio.|
|A great dual band Ham portable :-) Also use it for my business band and fire department as well. Easy to program on the fly. Great receiver and transmitter range :-) Thanks|
|Picked up this little jewel and love it so far. I am using it both for Ham, Business and GMRS. Can't beat it for the price. Actually going to try and talk to my work to pick up a few to use. |
|Yaesu, Icom, Kenwood (and even Alinco) are in trouble!|
|For about 100 dollars, you can get a dual band radio that performs as well as any of the "good old boy" radios that cost up to 3x more. My sister-in-law showed me her KG UV2 that someone loaned her, and I was immediately impressed with the design, weight, quality of construction and case, the excellent transmit audio and speaker audio, the fact that it puts out 5 watts on 2M and 4 watts on 440 AND it has a 1700 mA battery. It will kick out high power all day long. I tested mine on the Bird Wattmeter and it really does deliver 5 full on watts.
The programming software (KG UV COMMANDER by Jim Mitchell) for programming the radio is terrific. Thanks Jim! First and foremost, this software will unlock the rado to transmit and receive on any frequency the radio is capable of. For you Hams that also want to operate on GMRS or maybe you work in search and rescue, imagine having a radio that will do all of that. To program it, you will need (and I highly recommend) the Wouxun Programming Cable ($18.95) that connects to the radio via the mic connectors. You never need open the owner's manual again. Just be sure to download the USB Driver also and install that BEFORE you connect the radio.
The only trick is finding out which COM port your computer is using to communicate with the radio via the USB cable. On my computer, it was COM 12. You can determine this (in WIN XP) in Device Manager, then look for PORTS (com and lpt) and WITH THE RADIO CONNECTED via the usb cable, look for the one that says “Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port” and read the port number that it shows, i.e. “COM12” in my case.
It makes programming all the channel memories a snap (frequency, offset for repeaters, subaudible tones for access). My version 136-174 and 420-520.
Want more? It also receives the FM Broadcast band, and the sound quality is terrific listening to stations. If someone calls you, it immediately turns off the FM radio function and goes to the incoming channel.
Finally, top it off with one of the best and longest warranties in the business.
If more people knew about these radios, the establishment companies would be in trouble.
|Great Service - Great Products|

|I love this radio. Works better than my HT from a major mfg. If I lost this radio I would purchase another tomorrow. Also, Wouxun.us sells great products and provides great customer service. What more could you ask for? I'll be back again and again.|
|Not only good Merchandise but also...|
|It's my opinion that Ed the owner of Wouxun.us deserves some personal credit too. He ships his orders prompt and correct and answers his email also asap. A lot of dealers take a few seconds to try to give the same service and are only fixed on their revenue figures. I know all about it as an retired Marketing Managing Director and financial Director for several companies I know how difficult it is to satisfy all your customers. However Ed does seem to have no problems with his no frills policy on dealing with his customers. Way to go ED and in my opinion you should get a 10 star shield, for best sales and customer service for 2010 and 2011. Just as an example, I ordered something for my Wouxon on Monday evening and I found it in my mailbox on Thursday noon shipped by USPS First class mail and I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Texas...|
|2nd to NONE|
|Great Product and even better customer service! Thanks Import Comm!|
|Best Customer Service|
|By Stephen |
|Must give Ed (the owner) credit where it is due. If you want the best dealer service you can get for radios, then get it here. I've never experienced more prompt, great service from any dealer, ever! You will like the radio and the fast response service from this dealer.|
|Best Service and Best Radios!!|
|Ed runs a first class business!! He is responsive to questions, knows his stuff and has the most competitive prices. Thanks!!!|
|I don't see a a program for my uv-899.
Remark from wouxun.us: So you give a rating of 3 to a web site that has never sold you anything and has never sold the model of radio you need software for. Seems a little unfair to me.|
