I must have a bad 3. I got my cable, and was able to upload programming to it, but to no avail it still just sits there unresponsive. I can't get it to transmit or receive on any frequency... just odd.

But hey I also confirmed I can send programming to the UV-5r+, Paul brought his over and no problem at all. Barry hopefully we run into each other this weekend, would be cool to try your 3+, I'll have the cables with me.

I broke out my UV-3R yesterday, but it doesn't seem to be working. Not sure if maybe the charger isn't charging the batteries...it shows a constant green light when it's plugged in. I can't remember if the light changes on that one when charging, finished, etc. I'll have to RTFM. I've tried both batteries after letting them charge overnight and when I put them in the radio and try to turn it on, nothing happens.

Another tip...on my 5R, I programmed some El Paso County SAR and a couple other public service channels in and wanted to prevent accidental transmit.

In CHIRP, in the duplex field I selected SPLIT and in the OFFSET field I entered 0.0. If you happen to hit PTT it'll show 000.000 on the display and no RF is generated.

I've been playing so much with my new Kenwood TH-D72A that my Baofengs have been a bit neglected!

Interesting, sounds a lot like my UV-3r experience. And I too have been neglecting the Baofengs recently... and couldn't be happier. good tip on the accidental transmit- I'd imagine use tones on their end to the same end? never hurts to be double protected though.

Has anyone taken a look at this new HT from Baofeng?

http://www.radioddity.com/us/baofeng...t-version.html

Sounds like a few improvements over the UV-5r.

Bumping this thread for Bruce M... we were talking after the meeting on Wednesday, and he mentioned he wanted to program his Bao 5. Around post 28-30 is the data file for our most common channels, just download that then shove it into the radio using the Chirp software you have.

Also if you sift through the chat, you can actually find some pretty good tips in here.

I was confused on exactly what to download from CHIRP.

I too have not been messing with my Baofeng's...

Anyway, I guess I lost my charger for my UV-5R, so I bought another 5R for $25.00 from the zon. crazy pricing.

I know have 4 HTs, lol.. I keep them in my office so Mrs. Sandstorm does not ask why so many...

Any direction on what to download from CHIRP is appreciated.

Download the latest stable version of CHIRP (v0.4.1 currently) that is appropriate for your operating system. They have changed the way they do version releases, so you could download the last daily build but for Baofeng the support has been stable for a long time so the last release is fine without much risk.

I believe the file earlier in the thread is a CSV Excel file, so you import it rather than just open a native file.
