        Hello. I bought this radio station. Interested in working at frequencies of 144-164 and 446? How to make?

  1. is there any information about RT95 *.dat code-file ?
    it’s binary and specific. it works with rt95 programming sw.
    rt95 soft is tiny and small. ther ist no export function such as *.csv export.
    i need a csv- export/import function to handle rt95 device in ms-excel or
    any other soft to do this. CSV impex is basic to go with rt95.

      1. Mauro Comiotto

        I have the same issue; my PC’s port works flawlessly (with Chirp I can program without issues).
        Any hint to solve this problem?

  4. I purchased the Retevis RT95 and am wondering if I can change the default settings to Band 2. I am trying to program the radio for the US Amateur 70 centimeter band. It needs to go to 448 Mhz. Thank you

    1. Hi, RT95 is the analog mode mobile radio, so there is no firmware for it, only the digital radio has the firmware!
      Please note!

  5. I bought it from retevis official seller. incl cable. But i can only READ from radio, when i try to WRITE it says ERROR. Just want to change to band 2

  6. Daniel Buszka

    Hallo ich möchte bei retevis rt 95 die freqenzen erweitern wie z.b die freqenzen 136-174 mhz wie soll ich das machen bitte um gesamte anleitung danke bitte um schnelle antwort

  7. Can channels be programmed manually without the cable?

    If you travel and can’t add and save stations on the fly, it’s not really that useful.

    1. hi, we are so sorry for this, this model can not be programmed by its keypad, if you want, you can try the handheld radio Ailunce HD1

    1. hi, i am so sorry for this, your radio model is RT95?
      when you try to wirte, which error information? if you can make a screenshot, it will be helpful for us to know more abour your problem.
      if possible, you can email me:

      Best regards

    1. hi, first you need to know the repeater’s transmit frequency and Receive frequency, and also the ctcss/dcs.
      Then program your RT95 with the converse value. For example of the repeater information:
      Tx frequency: 433.1250mhz no ctcss/dcs code
      Rx frequency: 423.1250mhz no ctcss/dcs code
      Then your RT95 mobile radio setting:
      Tx frequency: 423.1250mhz
      Rx frequency: 433.1250mhz

      If any question, please contact with us!
      Best regards
