This is because Baofeng sells 2 different radios with the model name UV-82iii. So as it states in the CHIRP Supported Radio Models list, you must use the correct selection for the correct radio.

  • UV-82III (1 x PTT)
  • UV-82III (2 x PTT) (use Radioddity UV-82X3)

You have the model with the dual PTT buttons so you must use only the Radioddity UV-82X3 selections.

You do not have a working connection between the radio and computer. CHIRP is not getting a data back from the radio.

I would suspect that you either do not have a compatible device driver installed or you do not have the 2-pin plug fully engaged with the socket of the radio.

You were correct, I did not realize how hard I had to push the connecter into the radio. Thank you for the help.
