-RepeaterBook has not been able to support the Repeater List File (*.tsv) due to the use of Kenwood's extinct encoding processBoth the encoding to the software and to the SD Card are using UCS-2 LE BOM. RepeaterBook can only encode in UTF-8.+The Kenwood TH-D74 can only support D-Star radios in this list. Therefore, all non-D-Star radios are automatically filtered from the export. 
 +The software cannot import repeaters that are crossband. The software will throw an error, and skip the row.

 +===== Programming Tips ===== 
 +When using the MCP software, you may just want to append RepeaterBook data and avoid overwriting all your memories with the import fileHere is how to do that: 
 +  - Open one instance of the MCP software and either read from the radio or load a backup file. 
 +  Download an.HMK from  
 +  Open a 2nd instance of the MCP software and import the downloaded HMK file. 
 +  - Copy all imported channels from the second instance of the MCP.  
 +  - Paste the data from the second instance of the MCP to the end of the repeater list of the first MCP. 
 +VOILA - all items are now imported with no loss of original channels or settings! 
 +Now you just need to put them in a group and write to the radio. — Ryan Miller (KD9NBG). 
-A proven workaround is to download [[|Notepad++]] and covert the encoding.
