    2. My church security group purchased 10 Retevis radios about a year ago. I recently purchased two and they will not work with the others. We have the same channel. What can I do? I don’t really want to return them.

      1. hi, would you please tell me your radio’s model? Have you programmed them before?
        If you know how to program, would you please send me your radio’s settings?
        the way to get your radio’s setting:
        1, use the programming cable to connect the radio and computer
        2, open the radio’s software, choose the right port, click read from radio, to get the radio’s setting.
        3, save it as the file.

        then send the file to me, I will check it for you!
        My email:

  1. Hello helpdesk,
    can you please let me know if programming RT-22 is possible when using the prog-cable for Baofeng UV-5R ?
    thanks in advance for your answer !



  2. I bought (10) that said they could remote alarm and they did not work with my current set. Then I bought 6 more in the charging pack thinking they might work. They receive the alarm signal from the other radios but they won’t transmit an alarm. I have already programmed them successfully to transmit an alarm and neither alarm functions connect to the other radio. This should work.

  3. Hi,

    CAVERN is the “Cobb Area Volunteer Emergency Radio Network”, a public safety project from our nonprofit and the local town council. We’d be very pleased to hear your feedback on our nonprofit’s website at “”.

    We’re using Retevis RT22’s as one of our two basic radios (the other is a BTECH GMRS-V1). We have a few volunteers who have learned to program the RT22 and have been very impressed by some of the things we can do with them. Some of our FCC-licensed users have found that they can effectively turn them into 2W GMRS radios, and we can set them up to interoperate with our Repeater.

    If you have a chance to look at our harmless little website, please do let us know what you think! : )

  5. hola ! buenas tardes

    reciente mente compramos 10 radios rt22 retevis para un restaurante , quiero poner 5 de ellos en una frecuencia y otros 5 en otra pero que no se escuchen entre ellos y para eso ocuparia el software y aqui en la pagina de retevis no esta disponible me puede hacer el favor de hacermelo llegar
    agradeceria mucho !!

  6. How come I am able to transmit from the RT22 to different radios but not the other way around? I don’t have windows, so I can’t program them chirp does not work either. What can I do?

    1. sorry, now our software only support the windows, and if you want to transmit RT22 to other radios, just make sure the settings are same!
      And now RT22 is the license-free radio, so the settings will be same as the FRS or PMR446 frequency.
