Description

Yes, baofeng, i understand it is a lot of devices, maybe an option to add in the pull down list alternatives or groups.
a rookie like i am wants to select his system and, who is able to map a baofeng uv-10r to a uv-r5 has done some reading ... like i did, and i am not even sure i made the right selection.
Chirp is great, are we able to make group settins? would it save work?

History

Updated by Jim Unroe 2 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Feedback

The Supported Radio Models list is on the CHIRP Home Page.

It says...

Baofeng/Pofung

  • UV-10R (use BF-F8HP 3 power levels)

If you make the mistake and use Model: UV-5R, you will only have support for 2 power levels.

Thanks,
This is typical such a thing you need to know...
The 3 power levels will this mean i have also the 10 watt?
I am brand new in the porto world that is the reason i ordered this one, that way i can learn a bit.

If i use the BF-F8HP i get wrong model selected.
Im some tests the power was mesured as 4watt. There are some bad reviews on this model :-(

The only thing that you can be sure of is that menu 2 (TXP) will have 2 (HIGH|LOW) choices or 3 (HIGH|MID\LOW) selections. A few Baofeng and Baofeng like radio dealers seem to have no issue with overstating the battery capacity and/or transmit power output of these radios. For example the 1800 mAh stock UV-82 battery has always been marked 2800 mAh since the introduction of the radio. UV-5R like and UV-82 like radios (Including the UV-10R) with 2 power levels will typically be 4-5 watts or less and with 3 power levels will typically be 7-8 watts or less at the HIGH power setting. You will not know for sure without measuring it with a power meter and dummy load.

How many TXP choices does your radio have (2 or 3)?

Also attach a debug.log if you can.

Based on what is also published on the uv10r it seems it is for chirp a uv5r , other modes do not work, programming as a uv5r works ok. Also based on the documentation i cant find any info about 6 or 8 watt, and the test in a youtube movie shows 4 watt.

  • Model affected changed from baofeng to Baofeng UV-10R
  • Platform changed from Windows to All

Have you tried to use the BF-F8HP selection in Chirp?
Could you also answer Jim's question:

How many TXP choices does your radio have (2 or 3)?

It would be helpful to get this information before we close the ticket.

Ideally, please attach a debug.log file (see How to report issues for instructions how to do that).

Unfortunately these radios are sold with differing features under the same model name.

If it is the BF-UV10R style (see picture)...

- for 2 TX power levels and 2 bands choose: Baofeng / UV-5R
- for 2 TX power levels and 3 bands choose: Radioddity / UV-5RX3
- for 3 TX power levels and 2 bands choose: Baofeng / BF-F8HP

If it is the UV-10R style (see picture), then it is most likely not supported by CHIRP at this time.
