Description

I have a couple Retevis RT47s which are great radios. Same body style as the RT87 and they are water resistant, but I would like to be able to program them with CHIRP because I only have a MacBook computer.

I see nothing has been done on this 16+ month old request. Most likely because "Equipment Loan Offered: No"
Well I have a Retevis RT47V, which is the MURS version of the FRS RT47 that I am willing to loan.

Thank you Steven. It may still take a while until someone picks it up.

Hi there - new year, but noticed there still isn’t support for the RT47v. Anyone know if it planned? Thanks!

What usually happens is a volunteer CHIRP developer in one way or another gets access to a radio, its programming cable and OEM programming software and decides on his own to reverse engineer the cloning protocol and radio's settings. Once the work is done, it is submitted to be included in CHIRP. There is generally never a "plan" to support any particular model. It just boils down to what an interested volunteer CHIRP developer can get his/her hands on and has a desire to do the work.
