Re: Baefeng RD-5R

For the diagram of keys see the User Guide, section The control keys and buttons

Flashlight is Fn+5 (called LED lighting in the diagram).

AFAIK, listening FM broadcast is not supported. See http://www.opengd77.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=891.

Re: GD77 cable detected as USB input device.

Actually, the cable is just wires, all of the USB electronics is in the radio. So I guess you mean that your radio is detected as a USB input device. That is the correct behaviour in firmware upgrade mode, the radio appears as a HID (human interface device). But if you power on the radio normally an...

Re: Public Beta (2021 09 14)

german.h is source code which is used when compiling firmware (the .bin file).
wordlist CSV files are used in building the voice prompt files (.vpr).
These .h and .csv files are only needed by developers. End users can ignore them, you do not have to download them.

It's just that everyone has been used to using locked down radios only designed for commercial use, which are designed to actively stop people hearing all traffic.
Well said! :D

I have created a Python program for updating OpenGD77 satellite keps. I have tested it in Linux (Fedora 34 with Python 3.9.7). First, extract the Python programs and create a satellites.txt file in your working directory. For example, the following satellites.txt is included in the latest CPS (OpenG...

I think I understand the data structures involved after reading https://www.opengd77.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1846&start=10#p15844 - but I have a question about how much data the CPS sends to the radio. When the user clicks [Install sate...

For example "Unicode currently has 74605 CJK characters" (CJK = Chinese, Japanese, and Korean). To be ...
