It seems yet another Chinese brand sprung up: QYT. The UV-9A (UU) is a typical dual band HT, and the $47.50 price tag puts it in the same price range as the popular Baofeng UV-5R series. The QYT doesn’t look particularly beautiful, nor does the display.

The factory specs seem identical to all other Chinese dual-band radios. Unless the RX and TX qualities surpass other brands in some way (like the Baofeng UV-B5), this radio is just more of the same. Seller:

  1. i got one of these radios but can not program in memory channels. anyone know where i can get the programming software?

    • I am having the same problem I have the same radio and I noticed your post was from about a year ago and I was wondering if you happen to come across any software for programming the radio or not
