I purchased the new 7 watt UV-5RHP model and tried to download from it.
I get Incorrect 'Model' selected. I'm guessing the HP is for
High Power. I saw a request for an alias for uv5r. That might
fix this one also. I don't know what chirp is seeing when connected.
Is there a debug mode that could help with the model identity?

I had success connecting my Baofeng UV-5RHP using the BF-F8HP profile. Assuming the HP has something to do with the firmware type.

So I just had time to try this and I was able to use BF-F8HP profile for my UV-5RHP just as KD9BUK suggested.
So maybe the request for an alias needs to point to BF-F8HP as suggested above.
Patience is the key with this radio. It might not accept the upload the first or second time.
Eventually it worked.

  • Status changed from New to Feedback

The Baofeng UV-5R variants with 3 power level settings are supported by the BF-F8HP model as shown in the Supported Models list on the CHIRP home/wiki page.

  • BF-F8HP
    Also includes the BF-A58
    Also includes the BF-F9V2+
    Also includes the GT-3TP
    Also includes the UV-5RTP
    Also includes the UV-5R7W

The UV-5RHP model is new to me so I will add it to the list.
