  1. I am trying to program a Baofeng to be able to communicate with my RT81. What are the CTCSS and DCS settings for channel 1 please anyone……?

    1. Hi, you need to get a programming radio and RT81 software, then read from radio to get the setting of RT81. The program your other radios

  2. Can RT81 work in DMR mode through a DMR Repeater?
    If Answer is Yes, because programming software have only slot selection for “Slot 0, Slot 1” and is not compatible with any Hytera, Motorola, Tytera DMR Repeater, Kindly request confirm if this powerfull and water resistant held radio can be use only in talk around mode?


    1. The RT81 can work through a DMR repeater. And we’ve tested it through a repeater. It works well. But you have to remove the encryption because the encryption encoding and decoding logic is different from other radios.
