Good Morning
Are you still in need of people to test the Alpha version of the firmware. I have four MD 9600's of the first run of hardware. I'm available to help if needed.

Thanks

Win 10
You need to describe the problem in more detail.

e.g. Did the firmware install OK

Do you see the OpenGD77 Com port

What exact COM port errors you are seeing etc etc

Just saying you get com port errors is not enough information to understand the problem

Re: RD-5R power switch

Another difference between RD-5R and GD-77 is the power switch. In GD-77 the switch is "soft", so before really switching off the GD-77 software has a chance to save the current channel. However, in RD-5R the power switch cuts the power off immediately, so the firmware does not run any more. So on ...

Thanks for that reply: I am advising a friend to buy the GD-77 instead of the RD-5R to avoid those limitations.
Good idea

Not worth saving a few bucks.

Baofeng DM-1801 is sometimes cheaper than the GD77 and does not have the limitations as the RD-5R

Thank you!
Does this change my screen name for any other forums on phpBB, if any?
No.

Just this forum.

The phpBB logo is just the default which somes with the generic display theme. I should really replace it with a transparent image, to save confusion

Re: CPS and Windows XP

I am new here with my RD-5R. I run Windows XP in Parallels on my Mac mini very successfully so far with every CPS I have used to date. I have Windows 10 installed but never updated it or really use it. Will all of the software aspects of this project run in XP? Thanks! I don't think it still works ...

Re: W7ML in Los Angeles

I've been using a RD-5R since 2018 and I am excited to use OpenGD77 with it soon! Be aware there are some limitations to the firmware on the RD5R. Hotspot does not work due to hardware limations and the 100Mhz band FM Rx does not work, because we have been unable to find a datasheet for that chip. ...
