I've been trying to research this more.

On two of the Amazon reviews, the customer said there is software to do it. One customer said it wasn't in English. The other customer shut said it was a bear to do.

I'm wondering if the uv950p unlocked works.

I ordered one directly from wouxun this morning and they said it would come unlocked if purchased directly from them.

I should have it in 5 to 10 business days so I will update if it is unlocked or not once I receive it.

I don’t have that radio yet. But one source I found looks like the Wouxun software will let you change the frequencies but you cannot save the change.

Interesting…. do you have a link? I wonder why you can't save it.

Like I said I confirmed three times directly with wouxun that if I ordered from them it would come completely unlocked.

Hopefully it does.

I don’t have a link anymore I just googled it and found somebody who showed a screenshot saying it wouldn’t save.  Here’s the email I got from the manufacture.

HI




KG-UV980P is amateur radio, which is only allowed to transmit on amateur as per FCC regulations.




If you need GMRS TX, pls change to our other radio model KG-1000G.

I haven’t. Didn’t want to spend the money till I was sure. Think about going for the TYT TH9800 plus quad band . I may have instructions on how to modify the frequencies on it

My uv980p shipped yesterday via DHL so hopefully I'll have it next week.

They also threw in a programming cable for free.

I will let you know as soon as I get it if it is unlocked.

I think they might be trying to butter me up and become a dealer. I own my own small business sewing and making tactical and shooting gear for LEO and Military plus civilian shooters. I emailed them through the business email and they have asked me a few times if I was interested in selling wouxun radios.
