NB: Also manufactured under ZE-889 (Zetatalk) and YI-889G Yiyan (who may actually be the original manufacturer but it's hard to tell)

As a workaround to use the OEM software in english, I've attached an image indicating the location of the language-selection menu (and the option to select)

I would also be willing to loan the equipment, however, the cost may be prohibitive (UK only)

Listened to radio programming using serial monitor: radio may be related to the Wouxun KG-UV9D: the following was read from the radio.

Chirp can read from the radio using this (I was able to get all my programmed channels off of it) but does not support changing the settings - I would suggest using the OEM software for changing the settings (and setting the GPS channels)

Hi Callum,

It in deed seems related to the Wuoxun KG-UV8D (a new/old clone or variant?), but we need the full serial log for a read and a write to tell.

Can you upload the serial logs and a Chirp image?

Thanks, Pavel, CO7WT.

Adding some input added by Jerome villette 12 months ago in #6391.
It adds some more helpful information.

I just discover your software, it is fabulous
Just to mention that i succeed to use CHRIP in read/write data to my YIYAN YI-889G using Wuoxun KG-UV8D setup. My radio seems to be part of a clone family :
EasyTalk ET-889
The only issue I had was that channel names on the radio seems to be 12 characters long while the KG-UV8D setup seems to write only 8 characters.
I am using Ubuntu 16.10
Thanks again for such a good piece of software

Abbree AB-889G is also the same radio.
