I just bought another KG-UVD1P for a team mate and cloned mine for him, as I have two for my normal comms setup (the radio is FCC approved for commercial and public safety use in the United States.)

I wanted to point out that if you have one KG-UVD1P programmed, you can clone that radio using a cloning cable instead of a laptop. So you can just program one with the laptop and the rest can be cloned.

Our tem use those radios for more than a year now. UVD 1P is a very good radio and you can listen to two frequencies at the same time and transmit on one of those two.
We dont have any problems with radios. The range in forests is few km but on open I talked clearly to a friend on a distnce about 20 km (clear line betwen two hills). For proraming I use a progarm and a cable (takes cca. 1 min to program a radio if setting an frequencies allready in program). I prefer that, since you can clone only frequencies and NOT also other settings- some of which must be the same on all radios in order for comm to work properly.

to anyone buying a radio now. KG-UVD1P is a very good choice, tchou it had issues with charger which would broke... UVD2 or UVD3 is the one you should consider. and about programing radios in advance.. its rather pointless its better to ask for a current used freq and input it by yourself.
Yep! I'm a dentist.

I have one UVD2 and two UVD1P's. The only difference between them is that the radio case is slightly different. I prefer the UVD1P because it was easier to unlock the frequency ranges.

How is the standard antenna on these, any experience? There are shorter ones also available, but the standard one _seems_ to be flexible enough to survive airsofting.

It is yes. Not the most robust antenna out there but certainly enough for airsoft use. I have 3 alternative antennas for it, and there's little difference between the options really.

With the right license it is.

I should have said "open" however given most people are not, you would most likely be talking you yourself.

If you need to program your radio your team forum would likely have some info on what channels are the right ones for you.

It SHOULD have. Sadly it don't and no one with a higher ranking seem to either bother to give it out or don't have it themselves. Thus I'm asking for a general UHF/VHF and FRS programming file for this radio (it can run FRS since it's got the right stepping and mhz range).
