Bug #6341


This has probably been asked a million times but, I can't find a forum to search

Added by Paul Jordan almost 5 years ago. Updated about 3 years ago.

Target version:
Start date:
Due date:
% Done:


Estimated time:
Chirp Version:
Model affected:
Baofeng GT-3TP
Debug Log:
I read the instructions above:


The wife bought me a GT-3TP fr Christmas and I wanted to get it all programmed up.. First thing I learned is that the original software doesn't seenm to want to play well, found out about CHIRP. Looks like a pretty decent program whti being able to add repeaters by state and all those other bells and whistles.

My problem is with the Upload to radio part. I'm able to load up all the channels I want to use but, when I go to Upload to radio, no joy.

It looks like I might have deleted the initial file with the default channels that come with the radio and I don't really see any way to retrieve them.

Any help is greatly appreciated in getting this lil radio working. If I can figure it out, I'll be getting one for the wife as well. I'm an Extra Class and she's a General class but, she doesn't have any radios in her Jeep.

Drop me a note at if you can help.

Hello Paul, yes, that forum exists: the "mailing list":
You might get (much) quicker feedback there.

However, here's some late response:

From the symptoms you're describing, this looks like a cable / driver / connector issue. Please refer to these Wiki articles:
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables

Windows notes: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version
It can be found at
MacOS notes: this OS is apparently very picky about USB to Serial cables. From what I heard, only (genuine) FTDI-based cables can be made work.
You must have the KK7DS Python runtime for Mac OSX installed.

If there's no solution to be found in any of the listed Wiki articles, please read: How To Report Issues and provide a debug log. Thank you!
