QYT KT-980 Plus Released
QYT has released the KT-980 Plus mobile radio. It’s most likely the successor, or upgrade, to the previous KT-UV980 model.
The display seems to be the same as the one from the KT-8900D, but it is in a bigger case. Just like its smaller brother, it supports quad-standby. But that does not seem to be its best feature. Its best feature is that its specs state that it outputs 75W on VHF and 55W on UHF! That’s a lot of power, especially for a dual-band radio.
Here are the available specs:
- Output Power : 75W(VHF) 55W(UHF)
- Dual Band VHF/UHF 136-174/400-480MHz Quad Band Display
- Frequency Range: 136-174/400-480MHz SW Receiving
- Phase Lock Step: 5/6.25/10/12.5/15/25KHz Working
- Voltage: 13.8V DC
- Dimensions (W x H x D):140(W) x 43(H) x 172(D)mm
- Weight: 1.03kg
- Number of memory channels: 200
Note that the radio is already available for purchase on Amazon here.
This radio, along with the QYT bluetooth mic, will make an interesting budget mobile set. Assuming the radio supports the bluetooth mic, that it.
Hi. Do you know how can I get the fabrication manual? I need to know a replacement code
I am sorry, can’t help you with that.
any idea will it transmit up to 520mhz? aliexpress and amazon claimed its 520mhz but some other website says 480mhz, it is very important for me because i work for a private security company and we’re licensed and authorized to use 490mhz band in my country, thank you.
The specs in the manual state 480MHz as the maximum coverage.
thank you very much for your reply! i will look for other options that covers up to 520mhz operations
I don’t think it can do it.
Does itvhave a cross band repeater function
I am afraid not.
Hello, does it really put out 55w in UHF ? Thanks.
I don’t have it, but I would not be surprised if it did.
Any one knws the software to program these radio? Help. Thanks
How do you get it to state the supplied DC voltage on start-up? Mine doesn’t show it yet the manual suggests it should. Thanks
can’t access 2m repeater, I have transmit pl tone and offset programmed, is there a menu function that I’m missing?
