Retevis RT82 100000 contacts

There's been some confusion on the usage of the CSV file on the RT82 between internal contacts and file contacts. Hope this little guide will help clarify that, the procedure is quite simple actually:

- Make sure you are using the latest Retevis Firmware with CSV (not Record) functionality: http://www.retevis.com/resources_center/software/RT82-updated-firmware.zip
READ the Update Description.txt inside the ZIP file, load the correct file to your radio.

- Download the updated .CSV file, Facebook is a good source for that, specially this group:

It's updated daily by fellow hams:

- On the RT82 CPS, access the menu Program and click on the option Write Contacts.


- Press Import and find the downloaded stripped.csv file. Press Open to load it.

- Wait for the following popup and press Ok, it takes a while.


 - Press Write and wait (and wait... and wait.... and wait.... :) ) for it to finish.


- After a few minutes, you should expect this message, press OK


 - Press the X on the popup box, close the CPS, remove the cable from the radio and pick it up.

- Open Menu, Utilities, Radio Settings and ContactsCSV, change the option to Turn ON.

- Exit to main screen.

That's it. When you receive a QSO, you should see the complete information of the person (if it's in the database. The file (as of today) contains 66760 IDs and it's growing at a rate of almost 100 per day in average. You can upgrade it daily, weekly, monthly, it's up to you.
