  2. Hi, I have RT29 UHF and RT3s. Can I connect them with digital chanel ? I try it with same frequencies but no communication.

    With analog chanel work because I write CTCS and DCS codes-


    1. Hi, for your both radios RT29 uhf and RT3S, you only can communicate on the UHF analog mode.
      So please program your RT3S with the analog mode channel, then make sure the frequencies and CTCSS/dcs all sames

      If any question, please contact with us!
      Best regards

    1. hi, you need to set this program radio menu on your RT3S software.
