    It's possible the 980+ is new enough it's not supported by CHIRP yet. RT Systems writes software for several QYT radios and the 980+ is not listed on their site.

    After looking at the manual for the FTM-400, it appears the only way to do that would be with a firmware hack. There is a list of the functions that can be assigned to one of the "P" buttons on the...

    A search for the Baofeng BF-658 yields pictures of five or six different radios, all carrying the same number. Perhaps this has something to do with why you can't find software for it. It's a radio...

    In a nutshell, you can use the Baofeng UV-5R for amateur radio, with the appropriate license, legally. But that's about all. Not all models of Baofeng carry FCC Part 90 certification and use on...

    You really don't need to run full power on PSK-31. You can make plenty of QSOs with ten watts and the general rule of thumb is no higher than 25% of your radio's maximum power. The lower the...
