Re: Experimental Baofeng RD-5R version

Yes, that's what happened. I followed your instructions and now everything seems reasonably normal. Power readings at 146MHz 5W++ yields a little bit more than 6W but less than 7W 5W yields 4W 4W yields 3.5W 3W yields 2.5W 2W yields 2W 1W yields 1.5W 750 mW yields 1.25W 500 mW yields 1W 250 mW yield...

WARNING: POWER OUPUT EXCESSIVELY HIGH IN LATEST FW

If you are using OpenRD5R beware of the power output setting because it is absolutely deceiving and you may blow your unit out. These are real outputs measured with my wattmeter at 146 MHz. My advice is to use the last two settings to be on the safe side (250 mW for 5W and 50 mw for 3W) util this se...

Re: Experimental Baofeng RD-5R version

I installed DM-5R file.... what's the difference with the RD-5R .sgl?

I am not able to change anything in the Options menus, like "Options", "Display Options", "Sound Options"

[Unlikely] Port to Baofeng DM-X/DM-1702B

Hi, I've seen there's a port for DM-1801 so I wonder if it would be possible to port this software to DM-X/DM-760/DM-1702B which all seem to be exactly the same device featuring GPS and 1GB of audio recording memory.

Thanks!

Re: Experimental Baofeng RD-5R version

Hi! I have just seen there's this open firmware for DM-5R/RD-5R and I am actually very happy. I understand this is too experimental but I'd like to give it a try. I need to know I can go back to stock firmware when I need it. What are the chances the radio bricks and is there a safe way to unbrick i...
