Wouxun GMRS Two Way Radios
There was a time, not so long ago, when the number of radios manufactured for the GMRS were scant, and the number of brand name manufacturers producing them could be counted on one hand. Today, however, GMRS radios seem to be everywhere, and more manufacturers are jumping into the fray. The most notable of these companies is Wouxun.

Two years ago they introduced their first model, the KG-805G, and it was an instant hit. Since then, Wouxun has introduced other models, each an advancment on the last. Now the ever widening array of options from this one single manufacturer has created an interesting dilemma. It's no longer a question of whether or not to choose a Wouxun GMRS radio, its a question of which Wouxun radio to choose. Fortunately, we're here to help.

The following chart lists the Wouxun GMRS radios at Buy Two Way Radios with a comparison of their key features.
