Kensung / Wouxun KG-6228 Programmable UHF Transceiver
Kensung KG-6228 is a UHF Two-Way Radio made in China.
It covers 400MHz~470MHz with 38 CTCSS codes, able to store TX/RX independent frequencies, repeater shift, CTCSS code in 99* channel memory; manual states 15 memory in error. Green backlit on LCD display and Keypad. It is very simple to operate, press "SET" and number key to access functions.
It's very similar to JingTong JT-308, probably just different firmware on same circuit. Housing size is 3~4mm taller than JT308. Battery pack slides down, no need to remove belt clip for exchange. Operation is identical except some keys and slight deference on features. On Channel mode, LCD display shows CTCSS code number. Channel is accessible by entering 2 digits channel number from keypad. [SET] is to see frequency of the current channel for 10 seconds then automatically back to channel display.
It has a loud 2 seconds power up beep. Keypad beeps loud even volume is fully turned down. No control on these loud noise... but not bad as JingTong.
Large two keys below LCD screen are "SET" & "EXIT" why not "UP" & "DOWN"? Up & Down keys are located at upper right of small 4x4 keypad, not easy to use.
I bought this as a Wouxun KG-6228, item received was Kensung KG-6228. Kensung=Kenwood+Samsung??
Keypad of my KG-6228 is a bit chatty, sometimes one press produces a few. There was burr on battery pack plastic case, no problems I sanded them off nicely.
It's a same manual as JT308 with a few editing, written in Engrish.
Removal of Power pack is not written on the manual. Slide lock at bottom of unit towards front, Slide power pack down.
The User's Manual is written in Engrish, takes the better part of a day to decode.
