• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

Was at a hamfest this morning and won a Retevis RT-B6 dual bander in one of the hourly raffles. I had never heard of, or seen, this brand before. A quick Google search when I got home shows it's pretty much sold just on Amazon and eBay. It's built, and manually programs, along the lines of Baofeng and Wouxun.

Anyway, it doesn't look like CHIRP supports this brand, and an internet search produced no results. However, I'm hoping someone my have one of these radios and has a link to the software that I couldn't find. If so, could you point me in the right direction? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

It looks like a relabeled Baofeng UV-B6 to me. I would try to download from it using the Baofeng UV-B5 selection. If that works, the upload should work too.

You can also try the Baofeng software too. See the Miklor.com website.
