Hoping to see something for the Retrevis RT95/ Anytone 778UV soon. This is the only radio I have that does not have Chirp support and of course it is the one I need to program the most channels into.

When I try to find the software to communicate with a RT29 radio ( Chirp does not work ) I can not find it. Very frustrating all i can get from Reteivs is a link to the home page for software support that does not support the RT29 Radio. Please send me a link for the RT29 radio software, not a generic link to a home page with no software on it.

I do not see any radio import listing for the RT-27V in the chirp software for MAC OSX. I see some people have been able to program their 27V radios, how do I do it?

Reply

James September 9, 2020 - 5:27 pm

hello! CAN we know the reason why you want to change the frequency, for further research of our radio?

Reply
Sam September 10, 2020 - 12:54 am

Thanks. I don’t care to change the station frequencies, but I’d like to see what the transmit power is set to by default. I’ve read conflicting reports that some or all channels are set at 1W vs. the full 2W on the RT-27V Is that true?
