I have been trying to find a way to get software programming for my Puxing px-888 (no suffix) radio. The Puxing website has software, but after getting it all setup, I have found that it throws an error message asking for the px-888A instead of the px-888. I'm not even sure there is an A model!?

Anyway... In trying the three different options for Puxing radios in the current CHIRP release, using the px-777 option can read correctly from the radio, but messes up writing to the radio.

It appears that the firmware between these two models is similar, at least to the point that you can accurately read values from the radio.

I would appreciate support for the px-888, or for someone to point me in the direction of some other software to make programming this HT more intuitive. (It's a pain to do by hand, and this tool is just amazing)
