I USE THE PROGRAM " UV4BAND_E_CPS" . YOU CAN DOWLOAD IT FROM QYT WEB SITE IT IS FREE
Unless you had the squelch very loose; that has to be one of the worst squelch tails I've heard in a while.
Simplex with friends, DPL is the way to go; almost as good as reverse burst.
Actually i meant "A short video, on a topic by request"
Chirp works fine for programming the Luiton, Baofeng, QYT radios. You do have to download the latest Chirp build, and use the proper programming cable.
But I've set up several of these radios, and programming is a breeze. And, they work great, no complaints.
thank you very much for this video, good job to learn about this little rig with lot of power !
I have the QYT 8900d which seems to be the "same" radio.
Does that radio have any trouble with changing channels with the keypad? For instance, on my radio, if I type in 14 for channel 14, the radio will briefly go to channel 14 and then move up to channel 15. Likewise, if I type in 18, it'll switch to that channel and then switch to VFO mode...
I'm wondering if this flavor of the radio has the same types of issues.
And used pencils to change the crystal's frequency!
Also, add a screw/spring in the cover to do the same thing.
Yeah, I was wondering what I was going to do as well, then found that Chirp worked fine to program it once I selected QYT KT8900D.
