Thanks for the pointer, unfortunately I already tried those suggestions. The really odd thing is when you use the arrow buttons on the side of the radio, Up goes down in the menu, and Down goes up in in the menu. 73 Here are some notes for the MD380. https://www.miklor.com/MD380/380-Language.php Col...

does anyone have a TYT MD-2017?

If you do I need some assistance. I just updated firmware to latest non-GPS version which supports 100K contacts. Unfortunately now when I turn on the radio I no longer see English, I'm not sure what I see, however I think it is Chinese characters. Can someone provide the exact button pushes require...

Re: SOLVED Re: can't backup FLASH

No worries Its hard for us to check whether people are installing the correct firmware, for the radio. If we did attempt to do this, I think it would cause more problems with false negatives etc when things change in the firmware. I figured if there was a way to determine which model radio the CPS ...

SOLVED Re: can't backup FLASH

okay, this is all my fault, in other words I screwed up. The only radios I'd installed OpenGD77 on were Radioditty GD77 which is the only firmware I'd downloaded. So that is what I used on the DM1801, which of course it isn't meant for. I just downloaded OpenDM1801 firmware and installed it on the D...

Hi,

Hmmm, that sounds bad.
What did happen if you try to backup the calibration data ?


Cheers.

Re: Greetings from North Carolina

If you are an Amateur Radio licensee just install OpenGD77 and proceed. It is designed for hams, the day I received my GD77s I immediately installed OpenGD77 and have never looked back.
