  1. I have a couple of KG805Gs and so far I think they about perfect for my application which is basic family communication. The price was right and they are better than my Motorola Talkabout radios which are pretty good in an of themselves. B
  2. I was playing around with this the other day and couldn't get it to work. So glad you posted this. Thank you! B
  3. Thanks, I finally did figure out that you need to push and hold the exit button for 3 or 4 seconds to unlock it. It's not in the instruction sheet that I can find or it's written somewhere else in the sheet. B
  4. Ok this is a stupid question, I'll own that right up front. I enabled the automatic keylock (menu item #11) and I have not been able to disable it. Yes I read the instructions and it says to deactivate it to press MENU and the UP/DOWN buttons to get back into the menu, but that does not seem to be working on my radio. I'm sure it's somthing simple that I'm missing, but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out how to turn it off. Anyone know the trick? B
  5. Ok thanks for clearing that up for me. There are lots of things to learn when you are just starting out. :-) B
  6. Well maybe that's what the issue is. I did try and program it with one of the weather channels, and it choked and wouldn't take it. B
  7. Hello, I have a KG-805G GMRS radio I just picked up. I didn't realize that the NOAA weather channels are not available pre-programed. My understanding is that I can program them into the radio. I have a programming cable and have the Wouxun software. I think that I have found my local NOAA weather stations here. Is the programming as simple as filling in the table? Obviously I want to only monitor those channels, is there a way set it up so it's listen only? I tried to do that but got a out of range message from the software. Any advice would be appreciated. B
