“Today we get to look at a brand new Mobile GMRS Radio from Wouxun, the KG-1000G. This Mobile radio has some nice features that make it a contender for one of the best Mobile GMRS Radios on the market today. Let’s take a look…”
Introducing the Wouxun KG-1000G GMRS Base/Mobile Two Way Radio! The KG-1000G is the mobile two way radio that GMRS fans have been waiting for. With 30 GMRS channels and the ability to receive on multiple bands, this 50 watt powerhouse is packed with a plethora of features and functionality that goes well beyond the limited capabilities of the typical GMRS radio – and at a very cost effective price.
The KG-1000G has 999 programmable memory channels with CTCSS and DSC encode/decode, built-in NOAA weather channels, simultaneous reception, priority channel scanning, CTCSS/DCS scan, simultaneous dual mode operation, and an FM radio. You can select wide or narrow bandwidth (25KHz/12.5KHz) and select from four output power levels for optimal transmission. It also supports DTMF encoding/decoding.
But that’s just for starters. The Wouxun KG-1000G isn’t just a mobile two way radio, it’s also capable of connecting to a second KG-1000G to become full base or mobile repeater! Yes, that’s right. You can connect two KG-1000G radios together using the short (SCO-001) or long (SCO-002) display connection cables included in the package to create your own working repeater! How’s that for versatility?
And that’s not all. The KG-1000G has dual speakers with multiple speaker channel settings, plus a speaker built into the DTMF hand microphone. That’s three total speakers!
But wait, there’s still more. All the standard features of a Wouxun mobile/base station are there too, such as the 1750Hz burst tone, Channel Name edit and display, group calls, 8 group descrambler, APO power management, stun and kill function, external speaker support, 3 configurable front panel buttons and a built-in cooling fan with adjustable cooling control. All extras, and for no extra fee.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, there’s still more. A large, dual frequency LCD display is part of the KG-1000G as well. The backlit buttons on the front panel help you see them in the dark. The full featured keypad on the handheld speaker mic is also backlit and voice prompts assist you with menu navigation.
The front panel is also customizable! The KG-1000G includes two kinds of switchboard panels to fit your installation. Choose from an upward facing inclined panel or a flat panel for installation in your vehicle. The front panel as detachable and can be relocated separately from the radio chassis. The included 15 foot extension cable allows you to install it just about anywhere in your vehicle so you can have it right where you need it.
The KG-1000G can also be powered by the optional Wouxun SPS31WIN Power Supply to turn your GMRS mobile receiver into a fully operational GMRS base station!
The Wouxun KG-1000G comes with a handheld speaker microphone, inclined switchboard panel, flat switchboard panel, mobile mounting bracket, remote front panel bracket, mobile power cord, 15 foot extension cable, hand microphone hook, fuses, screw set, an easy to understand owner’s manual in plain English and a one year manufacturer warranty from Wouxun.
