Description

Hi,

Will there be support in the near future for the Wouxun KG-UV8H?

I installed the drivers and tried to read the radio but, kept getting an error. I had the correct comm port and tried to read my radio using all radios listed in the drop down menu.

Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately, you are quite unspecific with your problem report. The list of Supported Radios contains a variety of Wouxun KG-UV8 variants; you should try to select them in Chirp and collect a debug log as described in the Wiki: "How To Report Issues". Please post it here.

Your radio simply doesn't respond - this looks like a cable / driver / connector issue. Please refer to these Wiki articles:
CableGuide
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
Windows notes: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version 3.2.0.0.
It can be found at http://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_Drivers.php
MacOS notes: this OS is apparently very picky about USB to Serial cables. From what I heard, only (genuine) FTDI-based cables can be made work.
On older MacOS versions, you must have the KK7DS Python runtime for Mac OSX installed. I don't have information yet what to do on new versions (like Big Sur).
Big Sur is a problem on its own, because basically all USB drivers need to be rewritten. FTDI is still working on it.
Also see MacOS Tips!
Linux notes: Linux generally is quite good with USB to Serial converter drivers. The most likely cause for grief is a connector which doesn't provide good electrical contact.
Bluetooth notes: connections often suffer from timing issues, please try a cable instead.

I bought the cable from "https://www.buytwowayradios.com/wouxun-pco-001.html" after seeing a few of the reviews stating it would work with CHIRP.

The cable works properly with the Wouxun software...I can read and write from the radio. Attached pics are of my Comm port, the cable, and the Wouxun software.

Updated by steve pelts 7 months ago

I am having same problem. works with Wouxun software to program but not Chirp. Thanks

Updated by Bernhard Hailer 7 months ago

When you just plug in the cable on its USB side to your computer while the Wouxun software is NOT running, what can you see in the Device Manager? Is the port properly recognized and the driver working? I see that it's a Silicon Labs CP210x chip; but when you open that device, does it say that it fully works? Maybe it helps to install the latest driver version. It is conceivable that the Wouxun software has its own driver code, tailored to their cable; in that case it may be required to get a new quality cable from other sources.

Updated by Levi Cross 7 months ago

Yes sir, windows says it has the most up-to-date driver and it is working properly (with all other software closed). I also deleted the driver and re-installed…radio will not respond. I did read the reviews of the cable before buying and saw that several people were using it with CHIRP. Couldn't find anyone using my exact combo of UV8H and Windows 10 though. Any other ideas?

Thanks again for all of your help!

Updated by Pavel Milanes 6 months ago

Hi,

Unfortunately the models KG-UV8E and KG-UV8D are not the same radio on the inside, they have a different programing schema, so for the KG-UV8H it's not unlikely that this have changed, again.

Then you have the message that the radio doesn't respond when you try it as a KG-UV8D/E

We (Chirp devs) need a radio to test or a way to get a serial log from they KG-UV8H getting programmed (read/write) with the OEM software.

That to start support; sending a radio to me is complicated (took 1 year with the KG-UV8E) as I live in Cuba, never the less if you can do it, please contact me on this forum.

For the serial port logging/sniffing you can use on of this software (Some is paid others free, others has a free period... make your pick for your OS version, better ones on top...)

If any of you can take a log (full log with hexadecimal dump, etc) of a download (reading from radio) session and a write (uploading to the radio) session with the OEM software it will give us a starting point.

Cheers Pavel (KG-UV8E driver author)

Great!

That read/writes logs are good and have all the start info, but they are not from a complete read/write sessions, eltima .spm logs are usualy several 100kb and some times a couple of Mb of size.

Here you have some instructions to get a full log with meaningful info for me (Developer of the KG-UV-8E driver)

  • Download the OEM software, aka the software from Wuoxun for your radio.
  • Fire the serial monitor and configure it to sniff traffic.
  • Connect your radio & interface and fire the OEM software, do a full read of the radio.
  • Get sure you have a lot of serial traffic, then save the .spm file as a "read from radio"
  • Don't close the OEM software.
  • New session o the Serial monitor (clean start, close it and fire it again, configure it on the port etc).
  • Use the data loaded on the OEM software and write it back to the radio with no change in settings/channels/etc (important)
  • Get sure you have a lot of serial traffic, then save the .spm file as a "write to radio"

Upload the files here and let me do the magic...

This is the start point, Develop a driver for a radio I don't have at hand is hard but not impossible (I have done it for several BTECHs, the KG-UV8E, BF-T1, etc) so more testing ahead will be needed.

I'm taking the driver developing task officially, but will need help form users like you.

Cheers, Pavel CO7WT.

Hi - I followed your steps, and have attached the read and wire .spm files. They are still only 5k. My config has maybe 20 station memories so maybe that's typical? I hope this works.

Nope, same as the previous.

The radio did not answered, you need to record a full working session, one in which the OEM software get the channel data etc.

That may take a few tries, or even poking a few configs.

Without full logs I'm stranded here.

Sent data is good!!!

I processed and matched parts of it against the KG-UV8E and looks pretty similar, first impressions:

- Very similar to KG-UV8E, just slight changes at a glance (this is just about the communication protocol)
- Payload is encoded (just like the 8E) testing is needed yet to check if it's similar to the 8E and we can decode it.

More news on the night after a good work session with the data.

Cheers, Pavel.

So we have valid decodes and some have invalid packet decodes, that's with the KG-UV8E packet decoder scripts. that's a huge advance.

I will be working at night on the bare-bones driver to see id it's a clone or as similar to other radio to make it a clone and not re-discover the wheel.

Funny fact: Internally it identify itself as a "KG-UV8D-B" so that's our starting point.

Cheers, Pavel CO7WT.

Updated by Pavel Milanes 5 months ago

Update:

After a few hours playing with the data I have found a few interesting things:

  • Memory layout is different from the KG-UV8D and the KG-UV8E or KG-UV8T (despite identifying itself as a UV8D at low level)
  • I have to check it against other Wuoxun models in Chirp
  • I have almost completed the data to build a "just to get a full image" driver.
  • With the first real radio dump we will be able to compare the OEM image from the software to the real image from chirp

So your help will be needed soon, stay tuned.

Cheers, Pavel.

Updated by Pavel Milanes 5 months ago

Update, attached is a early develop driver.

WARNING!: This driver is meant to fulfill just one goal: Download a full radio image.
Even if the driver seems to work, DO NOT TRY TO MODIFY OR UPLOAD THE DATA TO THE RADIO.
You has been warned.

Disclaimer set, let's move on

Get a full radio image seems possible now with the download logs you kindly uploaded. Now we need to validate it and get a full image to start working on.

How to keep help us to make it on Chirp, do this steps as stated, there is no harm or brick possibility if you follow the instructions.

  1. Get the last version of Chirp
  2. Download the attached dev driver to your PC.
  3. Fire chirp, go to Help and tick "Enable developer functions"
  4. Go to File and then "Load Module", and load the attached file
  5. Connect the interface to the PC and to the radio (must be powered on)
  6. Try to read the radio (yes the KG-UV8H will be shown under Wuoxun)
  7. If all goes well you will see the progress bar for the download and it will finish (No matter what is the result, and error or full display of the channels of the radio)
  8. Please go to File and save that image and post it here.
  9. Get the debug.log and post it here (see https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/How_to_report_issues there you will learn how to find your chirp debug.log)

Again, even if it shows your radio channel data: do not try to modify it and/or upload the data back to the radio.

We just want to get a full radio image dump

Note: If you can do this process and somebody already did it (uploaded the image) don't stop, make it and upload your image, the more the better for me, that will speed up the process and will allow us to detect possible variations on early stages.

Thanks in advance, the ball is on your side.

Great!

Parsing the image right now, will provide soon a OEM image to program and dump in chirp with instructions.

At a glance it seems like a variation of the UV8E with some variations in the image positions...

Thanks!

Updated by Pavel Milanes 5 months ago

Ok, Attached there is a new dev driver, this one fix the settings part.

Definitively the radio is a variant of the UV8E without the 222Mhz band as much of the settings match perfectly at a glance.

In fact it identifies internally as a "KG-UV8D-B" while the UV8E identifies as "KG-UV8D-A". So much of the work is done already.

I just need to confirm that the data in Chirp matches the data in the radio and as I don; t have the radio I need your Help.

  1. Pick a moment to dedicate at least 20 minutes to this tasks
  2. See the previous post about load the attached dev driver on Chirp.
  3. Do a download the info in chirp and save the image.
  4. Do a download with the OEM software and save the image.
  5. Take a time to compare the results between Chirp data and the EOM software data, please write down what is wrong and why in Chirp against the OEM software. Also what new settings are missing on Chirp.
  6. Post both images (chirp's & OEM) and the list of discrepancies to this issue for me to process.

Also, I watched a few videos and read the manual but can't clarify is the radio has 2 or 3 power levels, (L/H or L/M/H) please clarify that.

Warning: Please do not attempt an upload the data to the radio in Chirp. I will be working on that part in the meanwhile...

Cheers Pavel CO7WT.

Pavel -

Quite a few changes I've got screen caps from both the Wouxun software and Chirp. I maxed out of attachments to this post - I'll post with the others in a minute.

Issues:

PTT-ID Delay 300ms vs. Begin
PTT-ID = BOT vs. (not found)
Busy Lock-A vs. (not found)
Busy Lock-B vs. (not found)
DTMF Transmit Time = 80ms vs 130 (wrong)
DTMF Interval Time = 80ms vs 130 (wrong)
Background (color) vs (not found)

Work Mode vs Radio Mode (change field to "work mode" as this term is used in the manual)
Repeater tone = off vs Enabled (wrong)

That's all for the main settings pages - have a look at the other pages as there are some significant changes needed.

Hi, sorry for the delay...

To resume the development I need a chirp image of your radio AND a OEM software codeplug file of the same radio. That will allow me to work without the radio at hand (Yes I don't have one of those, and yes: it's possible to work it out against a OEM software codeplug some times)

  • See https://chirp.danplanet.com/issues/8803#note-18 to know how to get the image with Chirp
  • Use the OEM provided software to read the radio and save it as the OEM software does
  • Please name the files with the exact variant you have (I see the software handles the KG-UV8H & KG-UV8G variants) and your call for example * CO7WT_KG-UV8H)_chirp * CO7WT_KG-UV8H_oem
  • Don't stop if other users has uploaded its files, upload yours: more files means more use cases and more data...
  • If you are concerned about privacity of your data just email the files to
