Same error. When reading newly purchased Baofeng UV-6 I receive an error at the end "Radio refused to send second block 0x1ec0." The radio succesfully reads/writes when using the official Baofeng UV6UV7_CPS software, http://www.baofengradio.com/endownload.asp?BigClassName=Programming%20Software&SmallClassName=&page=3.

I am using Windows 10, CHIRP daily-20190307, BaofengTech FTDI programming cable. I have 4 of these radios and have the same issue when reading from all of them. I am able to successfully read/write to my Baofeng UV-5R. The radio has 2 CMIT IDs on the back: 2012FP1944 and 2017FP2640.

I just got a new UV-6 and have same problem. My old UV-6 downloaded but only the memories tab was populated with info.

Same as Bugs #5615, #6173, #5905, #5887, #6447.
It's been a while since I have contributed. Let me know what you need. Seems like there was a port monitor program that you needed the output from.

I would like it to work. Tell me what can I give? What should I do?

These radios are refusing to return the second part of the radio's firmware section of memory. CHIRP needs/uses this information to be able to adjust for the radio being programmed.

Radio presenting the same problem, does anyone have a solution?

"Radio refused to send second block 0x1ec0."

Updated by Pino Digiuseppe 5 months ago

Baofeng UV-6 always the same error "Radio refused to send second block 0x1ec0". Is perfectly working with the UV-6 UV-7 Baofeng software. But I need for Chirp. Please!

I believe what Jim meant was "there's not much we can do, sorry". :-(
