FT-3DR shows as supported, but the .dat files generated by the radio cannot be read by Chirp. Upon attempting to open them Chirp indicates it cannot detect the type of radio, and manually selecting the type results in an empty table. No other method of importing and exporting FT-3DR data seems possible without an additional cable (whereas .dat files can be imported/exported on the radio's SD card).

Files attached.

I should note that CSV's from ADMS-11 cannot be opened in Chirp, and Chirp's CSV exports can't be opened in ADMS-11.

appears to be an issue with the FT2D as well https://chirp.danplanet.com/issues/5579

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Target version set to chirp-daily
  • Model affected changed from (All models) to Yaesu FT3D, FT2D

That's a feature request - Chirp can't do that yet.
