History

Updated by Jony Forester 6 months ago

This radio (Quad Band, Quad watch) seems to have very common things with QYT KT7900D and Surecom KT8900D.

The software and files is identical except few settings - see attached printscreens.

I can help with some serial port sniffing, but I am not a developer (except some simple hobby batch scripts, that I had wrote).

Probably with some support/advise I could manage to add this model.

I'll send a QYT KT-8R direct from Amazon that they can keep.

I tried to work on this driver back in May after a ham on the West coast asked about it. Not having the radio in my possession I relied on him to load the test driver, give it a try, and then follow up with feedback so I fix issues or continue on. I got as far as getting a image downloaded and saved but, but for whatever reason, he apparently wasn't willing to put any additional effort into working with me so the development ended. Having a radio in my possession would definitely help.

How would you like to go about arranging a radio being sent to you?

Updated by Meus Nulla 3 days ago

It appears that the radio has disappeared off Amazon??
Once I am able to find it again, I will still send it out to you.

It hasn't disappeared, but the only listing I see doesn't include Amazon Prime so the cost is $89.99 + $5.49 shipping and delivery wouldn't be until October 29-November 16. Pretty expensive since I had been looking at them on AliExpress and found one for $51.94 with free shipping to USA. It wouldn't arrive until late January 2021, though.
