Re: Baofeng 1801 not enter in upload mode

I have also requested a refund and the documented features of the radio are absent. It is sad that Baofeng have created a substantially different radio and given it the same name as on existing unit, and also lost the ham radio market in doing so. I am in the market for a 'working' 1801 if anyone wa...

Re: Baofeng 1801 not enter in upload mode

Re: Baofeng 1801 not enter in upload mode

Yes, they respond - so it's not a scam, but we have to figure it out, how to load opengd77 on it. Is there any difference on hardware? I have never had one of these before so can't answer that. Will wait to see what Baofeng HQ come back with in case perhaps there is a different key combination or w...

Re: Baofeng 1801 not enter in upload mode

Hello, I have the same issue with a radio from the same seller.
I have contacted the seller to report the issue and they are going to talk to Baofeng technicians to see what can be done. They seem to be helpful.
Will report back if any progress.
