Hello Is there away to enter into CPS advanced mode for RT85? With my RT52 I can enter advance mode with “SHIFT+CTRL+ALT+F11” and enter password “DMR00000”. thank you
hi，RT85 don’t have this function
thank you for your response. The reason I asked is I know the Beken BK4815 used in the radio has support for 4 frequency bands, the radio uses lowest and highest frequency bands, there are two middle bands that are not used in the radio.
If the 2nd band on the chip could be enabled the radio could be used on US 1.25M Amateur Band.
Another issue I see is trying to set repeater offset for 70cm band. The default offset is 5.0MHz. It takes a very. very long time to enter this offset using the front buttons. It would be easier if you could select the offset by entering it directly with numeric keypad.
