Rugged 5R & Baofeng 5R are identical.
I have exported the memories to a csv and pasted and uploaded to a uv5r with
no issues

Do you know where I can get a copy of the "factory" programming software?

The thing about clones is that you can never be sure how "cloned" they are.

Dave,
Based on the manual, the radio is a Dual Band (where the 5X3 is 3 band).
Also, the ABR (backlight display time) maxes out at 5 seconds, where newer
models time out at 10.
Based on the manual, it appears to be a base line Baofeng UV5R.

When visiting the Rugged Radio web site, it is easy to see that the radio
shown in the pictures was programmed using CHIRP. How can I tell, you ask?
It is programmed with 7 character channel names. The Baofeng factory
software only allows 6 character channel names.

Then on the Rugged Radio software page, the RH-5R has links for Windows,
Linus and Mac OS X programming software. The Baofeng factory software is for
Windows only. All three links point directly to very old CHIRP daily
versions (20150707).

My guess is that the RH-5R can be programmed using the latest CHIRP daily
build by selecting Vendor: Baofeng and Model: UV-5R. Confirm this and I will
add it to the list of of more then 41 UV-5R variants that use these same
selections.

I believe what you say is true, but you don't have to change the file you
downloaded from the radio. You can upload a different file, one of the stock
files in chirp or one you have created.

 I have not used it yet but I believe that you have to  export first from
your radio to your computer. That  establish a contact between the computer
and your radio.
 Then change the spreadsheet, that is a part of Chirp,?enter  all your
frequencies and then import that spreadsheet into  your radio. Please let me
know if that works as I have  ordered a beaufang from China and I will have
to do that  too.

 Just a clarification because I'm doing
 the same thing - after I copy/paste into the radio csv file,  and save it
as a csv file, then I import that csv file using  Chirp. Am I importing to
Chirp or using Chirp to import to  the radio?

Looking at the manual, it does not have any of the extended features the
UV-5X3 has.  I'd say, it is simply a repackaged UV-5R

'Back in the day' I thought one of the issues with using Excel to process
csv file and Chirp was that Excel tended to truncate trailing commas for
empty fields whereas Chirp was a stickler for those being in place to make
the columns line up correctly.

Am I misremembering or have either of those issues been improved?

Yeah,  and the problem really is whether the CHIRP software will be
compatible with the radio's firmware;  and there is always the possibility
that the radio will be damaged or bricked.

I have tried changing the column headers to match those in the stock files.
When I do it seems to recognize the file but it then says no channels found.
If I change the location column back to channel it does not recognize the
file. Why can't find any channels? Does the order of the column matter?
Here are the column headers:
Location	Frequency	    Offset	Duplex	Mode	Name	Show
Name	Tone Mode  	Tone	  DCS	Tx Power	    Skip
Step
Thanks for the help,
Jeff

Once again, if you would share (attach) your CSV file, Tom or I (and likely
many others) could tell you exactly what is wrong.
