The BF-UVF10 looks like another one of many so-called "waterproof" model variants. It most likely is already supported. Try...

Vendor: Baofeng
Model: UV-82WP

Nope. Doesn't work. Ive tried all the firmware in the chirp program, none work. The error I get is something like "error that's not the amount of data we were expecting".

Updated by Jim Unroe 10 months ago

Attach the debug.log file.

Where do I find this file ?

Updated by Tim B 10 months ago

Found it.

Updated by Jim Unroe 10 months ago

Thanks for adding the debug.log file. CHIRP is getting nothing from your radio. This is most likely a problem with the programming cable or its connection to the radio. But it can be that your radio requires a different string sent to it to initiate the cloning process. The only way to figure that out would be to locate the "factory" programming software and get it working.

I worked with someone yesterday with the same issue. It turned out to be a wire in the connector that attached to the radio was not soldered at the factory.

Any progress with checking your cable?

Hey guys I'm having the same problem, did you find a solution?

Updated by Bernhard Hailer 5 months ago

Hi Seamus, please check the previous comments and follow the advice.
Could you please provide a debug log as described in the Wiki: "How To Report Issues"? Thanks!

Radio is supported, use Baofeng UV-82WP in Chirp.

Updated by Christopher Lameter 4 months ago

The UV-82WP does not support the 220MHZ range. The UVF10 does support it. Can that be added?

Updated by Christopher Lameter 4 months ago

And yes aside from the 220MHZ (1.5 meter band) support UV-82WP does work fine for the UVF10

Christopher,

You should try using Model: UV-82III or Model: BF-A58S to get support for the 220 MHz band.

BF-A58S allows me to set up and download 220Mhz channels but it does not show that range in Settings/Other Settings as an additional VHF range like on other baofeng handhelds.

The same is true for UV-82III. What is the difference between the two?

Updated by Jim Unroe 4 months ago

Because of the way Baofeng implemented it in their radios. They just expanded the VHF band to cover from 130 to 260 MHz. Only the BTECH UV-5X3 (not made by Baofeng) added the 1-1/4 meter band as a 3rd separate band (and 3 separate groups of squelch thresholds).

I cannot increase the VHF range beyond 179 mhz using BF-A58S. The QVT KD8900R has VHF2 low and high and that is missing from BF-A58S.

The tri-band BF-A58S (not to be confused with the dual-band BF-A58) has the VHF band limits set from the factory to: LOW VHF=136 and HIGH VHF=260. Then the firmware blanks out use from 179.000 to 220.000 MHz. This gives the radio 2 VHF bands covering 136.000-179.000 MHz and 220.000-260.000 MHz. This is how all the tri-band Baofeng models work.

Confusing. Can the firmware be modified? I guess then the QYT radio is not baofeng? The relationship between all these companies seemingly using the same underlying hardware is pretty confusing.
