Today i found out about a strange behaviour in recent CHIRP that while programming the UV-5RE/UV-5R+ the transmit power setting is reversed.
The radio has two output power settings, high and low. If you set high power in CHIRP it represents as low power on the radio and vise versa.
With a "normal" UV-5R everything's the right way around.
The UV-5RE radio firmware is BFB297 as reported after holding "3" and turning on the radio.
I do own the radio for about a month now, so i can't tell if it's a regression or has been like this forever.
I'm running CHIRP daily from Arch User repository on Arch Linux amd64.
