CHIRP Now Supports QYT KT-8900D

CHIRP, the best open source program for radio programming, now supports both the QYT KT-7900D and KT-8900D radios.

This is excellent news, as the software makes programming radios a breeze. It also supports all the other radios from the same company. I can personally confirm that it fully supports the first occurrence of these radios, the KT-8900.

You can download the software, available for all major platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows) on the program’s website here.

    I have not had any luck at all. I follow the instructions and get a com port installed via my usb cable and it fails to see the radio. Chirp work great on by Bofeng hand held but not the KT-8900D. any Ideas?

    I can program the Baofeng UV-5R and the QYT KT-8900 (with the same cable and audio adapter) but cannot get the QYT -8900D to work. I did manage it some time ago, but maybe used a different radio type. Silly, didn’t write it down.

    I just received my KT-8900D today. I was able to use Chirp to program and was very happy with the results. As I was able to import all my freqs that I have from a Baofeng image. Really saved alot of time and energy….. Great Job.
