History

Further info: Firmware is at BFB297 and Baofeng VIP s/w does read and write this model.

After a read / write with VIP, I am able to use Chirp on these UV-5X radios. Odd and perhaps a hdw issue on my end ? Not sure but a reset didn't replicate the error I was seeing. This can probably be closed ?

Mark,

Do not use the 17 month old CHIRP v0.4.x stable build. There have been many new models and issues that have required daily builds to address.

Wrong version was listed in original issue report. This was with 0.4.1. Sorry...

Mark,

The CHIRP v0.4.1 stable build is 17 months old. It was released way before the UV-5X was ever though about. For CHIRP support of the UV-5X you must upgrade to a recent CHIRP daily build. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear in the above reply.
