I'M trying to download a radio file form a BETCH GMRS-V1 radio to chirp and I'm getting an error message ( incorrect model selected ) when I have VENDOR as BTECH and MODEL as GMRS-V1. These radios were programed with an earlier version of CHIRP 6/14/2020 and I am now using the latest version 4/21/2021. I copied the file i used on the earlier version of chirp and i can change the file and download to the radio but i still cant get that file to load in the new version of CHIRP any help would be appreciated.

Attach the CHIRP Radio Images (*.img) file that you are trying to "upload" to the radio. Also attach a freshly downloaded CHIRP Radio Images file from the radio that you are trying to upload to.

The file is the one I saved from 6/14/2020 and installed in with the CHIRP files that I could open in the program and use to make changes and install into the radio.

The problem is I can’t get CHIRP to download the file from the radio the program says ( incorrect model selected ) but I have the correct model input in the program. I have pasted the saved file that is in the radio from when I last programed it 6/14/2020 into the chirp files and I can change and use it to download to the radio, and even after doing this I still get the same error trying to download from the radio to the program. I have also tried this on another computer running WIN XP and get the same error.

Then attach a clean debug.log file. To create one...

1 close CHIRP
2 open CHIRP
3 cause the error
4 close CHIRP

To locate the debug.log file use the instructions found on the How To Report Issues page.

Perfect. It appears that the radio's fingerprint was added to CHIRP but it didn't get added to the radio's "_fileid" list.
Try this test driver module to see if it resolves your issue. Here is how you do it.

1 save the attached "gmrsuv1_US32412.py" test driver to a convenient location

Important: left click the file name and then click the "download" link on the page that loads.

2 open CHIRP
3 click "Help" in the menu bar and enable "Enable Developer Functions"
4 click "File" in the menu bar and select "Load Module" in the list of selections
5 locate and load the file that was saved in step 1

The CHIRP background should now be red. Attempt to download from your radio. If it works (it should), attached the downloaded file to this issue.

Note: This test driver does not permanently change your CHIRP installation. If you close CHIRP and later on need to access your radio, you will have to load this test driver first.
