[chirp_users] Wouxun KG-UV2d will not transmit

I don’t believe the UV2 is Part 90 certified, and will only transmit in the ham bands. To do Public Safety, you would need a radio like the UV7 or UV6. Those would be listed as Commercial radios.

I programmed the KG-UV2d to operate in the 155 and 460 range.  When I key the PPT I get a tone but the transmit light does not come on.

  

It does transmit on the VFO frequencies.

  

I did a reset and re programmed, no change.

  

Any suggestions?

Thank you David, Nigel, and Tony! 

  

David - your write up was thorough. I have been reading the FAQs and Beginner's Guide before my post, but I will check again and I will dissect your notes as well. 

  

Nigel - That is a great question, as I do know that we have a license, but I don't know the answer. We bought the VX261s from a dealer, but they are unable to program the smaller radios for us since they were not purchased through them. I will look into the license conditions. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. 

  

The error message I am receiving when I go to upload the frequencies to a new R22 is: 



  

Any known reason this would happen? 

  

Deeply appreciate the knowledge share, 

Becky

@Nigel, She may not be using the radios at all. She stated that she is only programming the devices. 


OK. Under which license will the radios be used? 

If commercial, the dealer selling the radios would be expected to program them. In any case, she, as an amateur programmer, needs to understand the license conditions under which they will be used. 


@Becky, can you help us by giving the exact error message(s) you received when programming your Retevis radios?

Hi !  

  

I am an amateur radio programmer (meaning I have been nominated by my office to program 30 radios).  

  

I have 10 Retevis 22s who have successfully downloaded the frequencies from a VX261. I have another 10 Retevis 22s that will come back as some sort of program.  

  

Any idea what is making it do that when I go to clone the frequencies?  

  

THANKS! 

Becky
