Ive got a Baofeng UV-5RTP unit and the documentation for CHIRP says that this set is supported, but you have to select BF-F8HP for the model in CHIRP.

Chirp Homepage:
•BF-F8HP (3 power levels)
Also includes the BF-F9V2+
Also includes the GT-3TP
Also includes the UV-5R PLUS
Also includes the UV-5RHP
Also includes the UV-5RTP
Also includes the UV-5R7W

However, i get the error "incorrect model selected"

It is found, when I choose UV-5R or UV-5X.

But in this case programmming of german ham Relais Fails. Transmitting Frequenz wont work. Only manuell programming works correctly.

I had read that others were using UV-5R, so I tried this and it does appear to work, but it appears to be corrupted on the set, as channels that should be a ham relais wont transmit.

Maybe it needs a workaround or a fix

Think that chirp thinks I have a 2 power device, but it is a 3 power device.

Is the actuell chirp-daily-20170111-installer.exe that I use.
