Ok, I’m being impatient. I’ve seen one YouTube vid mentioning this new version of the UV9G, but I can’t find any specs on it either on the BetterSafeRadio page or the Wouxun home page. Anyone have any info?

I have one right here on my desk.. It's a nice upgrade the the UV9G.. The release has been delayed due to supply chain/shipping issues, but it should be available soon (my GUESS is 30-60 days, but this is only a guess)..

Some new stuff on the UV9Gx:

  • theme able color schemes
  • much brighter LED flashlight
  • stiffer knobs
  • can receive down to 219Mhz
  • more power control settings for better battery life
  • a priority channel button, pre-set to the official highway channel, CH19
  • more pre-programmed frequenicies
  • and most important a ROGER BEEP

Oops.. sorry.. bad habit.

Some of the early UV9GPro and the UV9GLite had Roger beeps, but IIRC, the bulk of the UV9GPro units do not have a Roger Beep.. Due to the outcry of customers from around the world, they added it back for the UV9GX.

Mid power is now 2watts, high power is still 5watts.. I dont remember what low power is, but its the same as the the UV9GPro.

I'm only telling you this because YOU are my favorite user here at MyGMRS ...

Do you feel that the changes in screen theme help at all with visibility when using outside?

It helps a bit due to the added contrast, but doesn't totally solve the problem. That will have to wait for an OLED screen in a future version. :)

Channel 20, .675, had been the FCC regulated Emergency/Traveller Assistance frequency back when a GMRS license specified two of the 8 main channels.

Channel 19 had been a common CB road channel (and 9 is still considered an emergency channel)

It is, and the previous poster has some incorrect info. The UV9GX comes with the Priority Channel set to GMRS Ch 28, the Travel Channel repeater. :)

Also, there are no new battery saving features over the UV9G PRO and the new color screens aren't thimble, but rather 3 new fixed (yellow, white or red on a dark background) schemes. :) The power levels are also tweaked from the UV9G PRO and are close to what the UV9G LITE had way back when.

Back in the day that I referenced, GMRS didn't go by channel numbers (as any authorized frequency could be assigned -- by a radio shop/dealer -- to any of the two channel slots in that class of radio), hence my inclusion of the kHz portion of the frequency, which was how one commonly referred to the authorized frequency programmed into the radio. Those radios typically had a switch or button to toggle between repeater and simplex. There was no requirement that only repeaters were usable for emergency.

My mention of channel 20 was just to indicate where the .675 first appears in the "modern" consolidated channel listing. On my Midland MXT115, there is no channel 28 -- if repeater channels are active, it shows up as "20rp" when scrolling through the channels. On the hand-helds (and the DB20-G that may be getting returned for excessively LOW power output) I have named the channels similarly: simplex is named "G20 Em/Tr" and repeater is "R20 Em/Tr" (the Line A exclusion frequencies were similarly named with "...LinA" so it is easy to avoid them).

Correct. I was referring to the physical channels in the KG-UV9GX, where ch 28 is the repeater configuration for what is now commonly assigned as GMRS channel 20 (i.e. .675). There's no requirement that repeaters be used only for emergencies - in fact, all channels must give priority to any emergency traffic, including ch 20 (675) simplex or repeater, etc.
