This is my review of the Wouxun KG-UVD1P 2M/400 and 2M/220 radio.
The Wouxun KG-UVD1P seems to be at the top of the pile, being a little bit more expensive than the others but with added features that make them easier for ham radio use as well as other services.
Dont forget that the Great prices on the Baofeng UV-5R at Amazon comes in a 2M/440 model and a 2M/220 Model also

The Wouxun KG-UVD-1P Dual-Dand handheld commercial transceiver provides up to 5 Watts of RF power on VHF and 4 Watts on UHF. This Dual-Band radio has a frequency range of 136-174/400-480MHz RX/TX. FM: 76-108 MHz (RX). This is not a lighter duty amateur version. It features a long operating time with the included 1700 mAh high capacity Li-ion battery pack.
1. Amateur bands for multi-country use: The bands can be programmed via simple to use software and a special USB programming cable.
136-174 & 400-480 (RX & TX)
FM broadcast 76-108 (RX only)
2. SOS: This is another interesting feature. If you enable it in the menu, the radio will send out an SOS emergency signal.
3. Flashlight: This is one of the best features of the radio ! Pressing a side button illuminates a very bright white LED light at the top of the radio. This is very useful for finding gear at night!
4. Voice menu response: This feature is a little odd, but cool too. When enabled, the radio talks back to you in what I am assuming is a very cute Asian lady's voice.
5. Wide and Narrow band modulation supports 25 Khz and 12.5 Khz
6. Variable step frequency steps: 5Khz, 6.25Khz, 10Khz, 12.5Khz, 25Khz, 50Khz, 100Khz
