I read the instructions above:

Description

When using CHIRP the Model is not available. I read somewhere to use the BF-F8HP and it should work. Whenever I do that I get an incorrect model selected. This is a brand new radio, never programmed and I am also new to radio's.

I downloaded the Chirp daily installer for 15-Jan-2017. I am on a Windows 10 PC and have installed the drivers for the USB cable as well.

Unfortunately Baofeng has been shipping radios that have 3 power levels that use the BF-F8HP model selection with a firmware version that identifies the radio to CHIRP as being a radio with 2 power levels. Download using the UV-5R model selection. If that works then look at the firmware version (Settings -> Other Settings -> Firmware Message 1:) and if it is HN5RV01{something}, then that is the problem. If that is what it is, I don't know of a simple solution at this time.

Jim,

Thanks for the information. It looks like the UV-5R worked on the download. I will update my lists and do an upload to the radio and see if that works as well.
