Re: Unable to update RD-5R

Thanks for the helpful replies! It was actually a combination of things... 1. Wrong cable... I was using the cable for my UV5R (they are now appropriately labled) 2. Wrong CPS software version... I had upgraded the CPS version to the latest as a troubleshooting step (turns out to have been a bad ide...

Re: Hello ...

Welcome Bob, from a fellow NH HAM! I saw your QRZ page and we have a couple of things (other than ham radio) in common... photography, and mountain trekking. Hope to hook up with you on the bands. I listen to TG3100 most of the day.

73,

You read your radio's codeplug using the OpenGD77 CPS. You go to the "Digital Contacts" list (double cli...

Re: RD5R Firmware Questions

Hi Daniel, I actually did everything you suggested. I edited the CSV to allow me to more tailor the entries and remove any charactersn that might cause me trouble (+,-,&, etc). But when the data was imported to my radio, they were blank. As for the .gd77 versus .dat file, the only codeplug format th...

Re: RD5R Firmware Questions

Well the good news is that I can restore the OEM FW if needed. The bad news is that I needed to. The FW update went just fine. However, all of my contacts were removed. So, I used the CSV converter tool to export the 5 CSV's from my Baofeng codeplug, and then imported them to an empty OpenGD77 codep...
