So I recently bought a pair of Wouxun KG-UV6D. We don't have the license required to operate outside of PMR frequencies, but that's fine, as we will be using these for airsoft. The programming of 8 standard PMR frequencies used is pretty straight forward, but for some reason, I am experiencing "spillover". The channels I am programming into them are these:
- PMR 1:446,00625
- PMR 2:446,01875
- PMR 3:446,03125
- PMR 4:446,04375
- PMR 5:446,05625
- PMR 6:446,06875
- PMR 7:446,08125
- PMR 8:446,09375
But when I have one set to 446,00625 and the other to 446,01875, if I send with the 446,01875-radio, the other radio will pick up a lot of static noise. So far, I have tried setting squelch level to the least tolerant level, and channged the bandwidth from wide to narrow, but it is still picking up the static. Aside from that, the static seems to interfere with my laptop, randomly interacting with my media keys (fan boost, bluetooth etc.). I have set the step to 6.25K, and I will not be using this radio to access any repeaters. Also, I need to send with a TXP of 0.5, but seeing as the radio only has HIGH (4W) and LOW (1W), I stick to the low setting.
I am programming manually, and I am very, very green to radios. What am I doing wrong?
Edit: I made a short demonstrational video of what this interference sounds like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TE7MekFMx-o - Take note that I am on the wrong frequencies in this video: I misread 446.- for 466.-
