I’m new here and I just wanted to say hello. Hopefully, some of you have already seen my post int General Discussion about the Wouxun KG-UV8D and my questions about preordering it. (I posted that before I saw this introduction thread.) I’m a technician class ham and I got into amateur radio because I’m planning a back packing trip this summer and will be using my HT for safety on the trail. It’s also a fun hobby and a useful tool.
