I don't really know ho to set up my radio starter kit

I bought this kit from the online store linked to this forum:

1 Ham Radio Starter Kit - Mobile/Base Station
1 Wouxun KG-UV920P-A Dual Band Base/Mobile Two Way Radio
1 Tram 1185 Amateur Dual-Band Magnet Antenna
1 Wouxun Mobile Radio USB Programming Cable (PCO-003)
1 Wouxun Handheld / Mobile Radio Driver and Programming Software
1 Wouxun SPS31WIN 30A Switching Power Supply with Dual LCD

It is my first radio. I have no idea where to start as far as setting it up. I had hoped to find a video. Im kind of scared to just plug it in. I did read the manual that came with it but I still would like a tutorial if anyone can point me to one. I figured that since it was a “starter kit” that this would be easier to set up but I think I was wrong :wink: Anyway, hoping to learn and thankful and anticipate meeting yall.

Hi, the starter kit is essentially a combo package with everything you need to get started without the need to search around. It’s especially aimed at new ham operators with a technician license who need to assemble their first UHF or VHF rig but may not be familiar with all of the equipment available on the market.

The starter kit includes all of the basic components needed to Get On The Air. These are popular products that have been tested to complement each other and work optimally together and offered at a significantly discounted price, so a new ham can get their feet wet in the hobby without getting soaked from the initial costs of starting up.

It is generally assumed that new hams, after passing the technician exam, will have the basic knowledge necessary to connect everything together and operate the KG-UV920P-A as a base station. The radio also includes all of the hardware needed to install it in a vehicle for use as a mobile radio. The Wouxun manual does include basic instructions on how to do both.

Pages 4-5 - Pre-use installation, shows you how to mount the radio in a vehicle.

Page 6 - Connecting power source, shows you how to connect the KG-UV920P-A to the SPS31WIN power supply for use as a base station.

Page 7 - Antenna connection, shows you how to connect the antenna to the radio.

Pages 8-11 - Front panel installation, shows you how to prep the radio for installation in a vehicle. Although it does not provide step-by-step instructions for actually wiring and grounding the radio in your vehicle, it does give you an idea of what is involved.

If you have never hard wired a device in a vehicle, you may want to take it to a professional car audio tech and have him or her install it for you.

In addition, Buy Two Way Radios has a number of resources online to help figure out the general setup and operation of these products, including blog articles, videos and even a podcast.

Rick, that was exactly the info I was looking for. Thank you!
