First of all let me thank the developers of CHIRP for providing such a powerful multi platform product! As a novice radio enthusiast it has really helped me learn a lot.

Now on to my request for info.... I'm sure you get a plethora of wants and needs requests but as stated I have a QYT KT8900 radio. I can't for the life of me find where I can change the ANI code of it and properly set up EOT DTMF transmission. Your software did this like a champ on my UV-5R+. But I can't find this little tid bit of programming in CHIRP.

As a side note I've tried the factory software with factory dongle and the radio just keeps rebooting so that's not an option. But the radio reads and writes 100% with CHIRP; it never misses a beat.

Thank you,

Hi Brent,

It is all right there. Virtually the same as for a UV-5R. You have 15 code slots with up to 16 DTMF signals each that you can program to be transmitted BOT, EOT or both on a per channel basis.

Thanks very much for getting back to me... I'm beginning to think I may have a radio fault. I had tried those settings in CHIRP before and nothing changed in the radio operation wise. Oh well it is what it is. I guess I can live with keying in the DTMF code manually till I get a new radio.
Again, thanks a bunch! I thought I was going mental but in the end I was on the right track with a suspect radio! :)
