Hi,

i've try to programming kenwood tk 859 uhf mobile radio.
The original DOS software don't work with win7 32 bit, also with dos box.

The radio enter in programming mode, but after one second i receive this error message :
global name 'hexprint' is not defined

  • Tracker changed from Bug to New Model
  • Subject changed from Try to programmming tk 869 to Kenwood TK-859
  • Status changed from New to Feedback
  • Target version set to chirp-daily
  • Equipment Loan Offered set to No

First: TK-859 or TK-869? Your original header said "tk 869", which I assume was wrong.

Second, the addition of a new radio to Chirp requires two things:
a) a volunteer developer who takes the task to work on this driver,
b) availability of test equipment, such as a loaner radio (see Rules For Loaning A Radio).
Unfortunately, you need to wait until both conditions have been met.
Or, you could decide to get your hands dirty yourself - check Wiki, "Developers".
