Hi there,

I have a bunch of RT24 radios with 1801 and 1709 serial number prefixes (production date?).

Both work fine with the Radioddity R2 model. For the 1709 I had to add a second variant for the acknowledge at the beginning of the model code.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to figure out how to add a commit to the mercurial repository (I did not find the URL...) so please see my patch attached.
I manually tested that both the Radioddity as well as the RT24 work.

Hey there,

how can I support to bring this forward? I would like to see support upstream... The RT24 is a good "successor" of the cheapest h777.

Hi Matthias,
I'm using this fix with my RT24 with serial prefix 1706 on chirp daily-20190104 (debian package).
When I try to download from radio I get the error message "Radio refused to enter programming mode 2".

How can I troubleshoot this?
