Wouxun   KG-UV8D
Frequency Expansion Software

 
 
The purpose of this software is to allow the user to take advantage of the entire frequency range capability of the Wouxun KG-UV8D.
 
Note 1: This software runs on the Wouxun KG-UV8D Only and will Not add the 2.5kHz frequency step.

Note 2: This is not 3rd party software, but the same software made available to dealers and distributors.
 
 
This software is available as a courtesy to our readers.
It is the same software available from major dealers and distributors.
We will not be responsible for any damage caused by
improper loading or use of radio outside its factory
specified limits or any radio other than a Wouxun UV8D.
 
The specified limits for the UV8D are: 134-174 MHz/400-519 MHz
 

 
Connect the radio to your Windows PC with the proper programming cable.

Running the Frequency Limit software will produce the following screen image.

Note: If your screen image is All Gray, see note at bottom of page.

 

 
The upper left corner of the screen will show 3 options.

Down Arrow
Used for Downloading the current frequency parameters.

Up Arrow
Used for  Uploading the new frequency parameters

The 3rd option is for selecting the USB cables Com port.
 

 
 
The example below shows what appears when Downloading the parameters from the UV8D set to the US ham band limits.

420.000 - 449.995MHz and 144.000 - 147.995 MHz



 
To expand the coverage of the UV8D to its maximum frequency range, change the parameters to those shown below.

The upper set of limits are for receive and the lower set of limits are for transmit, for each band.
 
Click on the Up Arrow box to Upload the new parameters to the UV8D. The radio will reboot after the upload.

If using the standard programming software, you need to set the channel transmit frequency to null if the receive frequency is outside the transmit limits.
 
 

 
Blank Screen
 
This software has been known to Not Run on some Windows PCs.  The screen that appears is gray, and when selecting the tab, this message appears:
 
"TOOL15 - An unsupported operation was attempted"
and the software will not execute.
 
Nothing will be Read or Written to your radio. It will stop before that occurs, so nothing will be altered or changed.

To date, the reason it is rejected by some is unknown. The software runs on one of my Win7 PCs and not the other.  If a solution is obtained, I will post it here.
