Question

First off I have the right USB cable and the correct com port I've tried Chirp and even the Wouxun software but it doesn't list this model also tried the KGUV commander software to no avail. was hoping I could find someone else that has a copy of the programming software for this radio or another hack I could try I should have downloaded the software over a year ago when I purchased the HT's but I just left the pre configured frequencies in em . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Frank don't know where you found that link I looked all over Powerwerx never could find it I'm in there changing it up thanks again es 73

 

You're quite welcome. If the SetupGU16GMRS.exe file is working for you, that's great. Back in the day (two years ago), it was the officially-distributed software for programming the GMRS version of the GU-16.

 

As to how I located it, that was easy.

 

Since I've done more than a few Web sites for people over the years, I know basic X/HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and needless to say, I've examined the source code of many a Web page that was created by persons other than myself. Because of this, I'm very aware that some Webmasters have a habit of leaving old code in their pages when they update the page. So in this case, I looked at the code for the page at http://www.powerwerx.com/wouxun/usb.html and saw that it still contained references to both the Commercial and GMRS versions of the GU-16 radio, even though the code in question was no longer being rendered by the browser and therefore wasn't visible to a visitor to the page.

 

If you do a 'View Source' in your browser (all Desktop browsers and some Mobile browsers have a View Source function) for that particular URL and then do a 'Find' operation for "GU-16" (without the quotes, of course), you'll see what I'm referring to.

 

And here's some additional information about the GU-16 that I came across after I replied to your post. The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine can sometimes be a highly useful source of information.

Yes, you should have downloaded the the programming software at the time you purchased the radios, as I believe that they have since been discontinued. They don't appear to even be mentioned on Wouxun's China Web site. However, I can offer the following...

 

If the radios that you have came from Powerwerx and were the GMRS version, then you might want to download and run the following program.

 

Powerwerx GU-16 GMRS Programming Software (2,782,440 bytes)

http://www.powerwerx.com/download/SetupGU16GMRS.exe

 

If the radios that you have came from Powerwerx and were the LMR/Commercial version, then you might want to download and run the following program.

 

Powerwerx GU-16 Programming Software (2,768,808 bytes)

http://www.powerwerx.com/download/SetupGU16.exe

 

Please note that this is only a suggestion. I accept no responsibility whatsoever for any damage done to your radio(s) or your computer as a result of using either of the above programs.

 

Good luck and if you try this, please do let us know how you made out.

 

Regards,

 

Frank.
