Wouxun KG-UV920R Twinband Deluxe

This highly anticipated radio was announced in 2010, and for a long time now many hams have asked when the heck is it going to be available? Well the good news is this radio does indeed exist and was on display at the Hong Kong Electronics show in October 2011. I have even read a report (but unable to verify) of the radio being purchased in Hong Kong and Singapore. Additional pictures of the KG-UV920R from the Hong Kong Electronics show can be found on the website. If this radio lives up to the hype and it’s specs, it will be immensely popular!
