I have attached a beta driver module for the Retevis RT23. Please test and report any issues here.

I know that there is an issue with SKIP/SCAN that needs to be resolved.

To use this module, save it to where you save your CHIRP Radio Images (*.img) files or some other convenient location. Then enable "Enable Developer Function" in the Help menu. This add a "Load Module" selection in the File menu. Use the Load Module selection to load this beta driver module.

After getting some good feedback, I've decided to remove the support for the cross band repeater feature for the time being. The way this is supported by CHIRP is new to me and it was causing some reported issues that I could not resolve. I would rather get this driver working for the normal 2-way radio features and implemented in CHIRP as soon as possible with out this support. The special features can be added later.

Please give it a try and report back your findings.
