Description

I recently bought the Baofeng UV-62 & have been trying to get it to communicate with the "Chirp" software but i keep get an error message of "Error reading data from radio: not the amount of data we want.".
I am using the UV-6R option to try to get it to download an image but i keep getting the message, The cable i am using is good i know because it works on my other radios (UV-5,UV-5R, UV-82, but not on thr UV-62.
Any help on this matter would be very much appreciated.

The UV-62 is not a CHIRP supported model. Have you tried the factory programming software?

I did a quick search for it but couldn't find it. That's why I have a personal policy to never purchase a radio unless I have the programming software already in my possession.

The Baofeng UV-6 (which is supported by CHIRP) is basically a UV-5R (VHF/UHF with 128 channels) with the LCD display and keypad removed. The UV-62 appears to be 16-channel UHF only model. It is most likely a variant of the BF-888s. I assume that you've already tried that, right? There isn't much more that can be done without access to the factory software.

I would recommend that you visit the official Baofeng website for the radio manufacturer in China (Fujian Baofeng Electronics Co.) and ask Technical Support for the customer programming software for this model.
