Hello Phil,

I knew you didn't have the tri-band "E" version, that you had the KG-UV8D.
I just wanted to show you a site that had the latest Wouxun software for
the D version and perhaps later or latest software for your UV8D model.

I sent my software and cable back two times thinking it was defective.  It
wasn't but was wrong was that the Official Wouxun China site only had the E
model software that did NOT work!  Can you believe that?

I guess there is no more modern software for your UV8D model.

Just a hopeful observation.
