When I try to upload a logo into the radio the software crashes.
I use a 128*64 pix bmp picture 24pp named “RT52Logo.bmp”. i tried to change the name from a longer to this one i tried some smaller pictures but i cant change the power on logo.
It is not a vital function but it will be better if you have a solution for me 😉

Lots of options not available in the CPS (grey out items) any idea when this will get an update to be able to utilise options that are currently unavailable?

Cherry October 22, 2019 - 2:01 pm

I am so sorry for this, the software with in grey means this radio haven’t this function.
When update, we will post inforamtion on blog and our facebook!

The software comes locked up with most options grayed out, so you need to press a magic keycombo SHIFT+CTRL+ALT+F11 and then type a password DMR00000.

Hta scott press ctrl alt f11 then type password 00000000 on menu and then you can tic all settings

i like this radio …. two questions
when programming analog channels I can’t save the Rx CTCSS/CDCSS end Tx CTCSS/CDCSS
I have to set it from the radio manually

how come the intro screen page ….. is not editable?

Cherry April 28, 2020 - 4:47 pm

for your questions:
1, you can not save the CTCSS/DCS, I have tested on the RT52 software, it works, so maybe would you please tell me the question clearly?
or you can show me a video.
2, now this RT52 radio doesn’t support to change the screen page!

Video can be sent to our email: partner@retevis.com

Hi I have the same problem. When I choose the TX CTCSS, it always came back to None

James August 4, 2020 - 8:54 am

Hello! Here are five ways you can have a try.

1:Whether the frequency written is within the frequency range

VHF: 136-174MHz

UHF: 400-470MHz

2. The CTCSS setting must be set in analog mode.

3. Can the machine launch normally when the CTCSS is not set

4. Could you please send us a video about it?

5:Could you please leave your e-mail? and I will send you a code plug.

I love the RT52 and have already tried to unlock the software, but the shift/ctrl/alt/f11 nor the ctrl/alt/f11 does not seem to work in software version What i am doing wrong.

Cherry May 15, 2020 - 8:45 am

Hi, We are so sorry, we never released any ways to unlock the software, But we have the way to let you enter into the advanced mode.
For example: now the RT52 software: you can not set some of the functions in the software, because these settings are in grey. but when you enter into the advanced mode, you can set them!
The way to enter into the advanced mode: Press the shift+Ctrl+Alt+F11, it will ask for the password: DMR00000
Then you enter into!
Best regards
