WOUXUN - KG-UVD1P - Is 5 Star :

My personal experience with WOUXUN - KG-UVD1P - is 5 star. As already mentioned elsewhere, the rx sensitivity is really good. Of course the S- Meter is really generous - more of guess meter than a S meter - but as we hams always say - "your report is ___by the EAR" - not a problem at all.

The accompanying manual is the usual "Chinese English" - It takes a little time before you comprehend what exactly it means - but do we hams really use/need the Operating Manual ???????

The antenna connector is a little tricky - SMA Male is on the rig - you need a SMA female connector if you are connecting an external antenna - easily available in SP Road, Bangalore for around Rs. 350.

The speaker mic that is available as an accessory is really FB - excellent audio report - also compatible with Kenwood handies.

The other accessory - the ear phone mic - on similar lines with the mobile phone ear-set - is equally sensitive and has a good voice pickup range - listeners have not complained about the audio level even when I accidentally talk from behind the mic.

The Battery adapter design is the only drawback - the wire comes from under the pack - a stand has to be used or designed to take care of that.

Just a few comments - But I find it worth every Rupee spent on the rig - Am having a BALL using this for my Satellite QSOs. Those of you who decide on this equipment - WELCOME ABOARD.
