Question on Wouxun KG-UV899 for GMRS use

Question

I'm a newcomer to radios other than some limited CB time in the 70's and 80's and want to get setup with a radio that can cover both the GMRS and MURS frequencies. I realize that it isn't quite kosher. In that regard my neighbor has offered a Wouxun KG-UV899 to me for $50. I've researched and it only covers the 2M and 70CM bands. Some foreign models cover the GMRS and MURS bands. Is there a way to expand the frequency? I've seen the way that the Yaesu FT-65R can be programmed to cover the GMRS and MURS bands.

 

I've looked at the Tera TR-505 by Powerwerx which can cover both bands and it is a rehashed Wouxun.

With the proper computer software, the limits on the UV899 can be set so that it is usable from 136 to 174MHz VHF, and from 400 to 520MHz UHF. 

 

Where to find the correct software is another question, which I cannot answer at this time.
