I just got the Btech UV-5X3 triband transiever, I have the BTECH cable and using CHiRP wanting to program the unit I tried to clone the unit to my Windows 10 surface unit and after 30 seconds into the clone I get an error which is the following "Error reading data from radio: not the amount of data we want." and can not clone the radio to try program the unit at all. please could you let me know how to get past this issue on the radio.

Thank you

Mike Vickers.

Make sure the 2-pin plug is fully inserted into the radio. Also attach the debug.log file to this issue.

I checked the two pin plug is plugged in all the way into the radio. second there is no debug.log file generated by the application on my machine. one thing I am noticing with this radio is that when I manually set a repeater frequency for a repeater which is shown in rfinder, I am b=not able to break squelch on any repeater that I have tried so far so I am kind of wondering...

Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.

We can cancel this issue I resolved the issue, I was working with the radio and when I can to do the down load I had the radio turned off to plug the cable in and did not turn it back on so it did not download.

Thank you
