Description

Hi,

I'm trying to get my Baofeng UV-9R to connect, but I keep getting a message saying that there was an error sending data to the radio. I've turned the radio off and on, in frequency and channel modes, unplugged and re-plugged the cable several times. Any ideas? (Go easy on me, I'm new to this!)

Thanks!

Nick

If your programming cable has a Prolific type USB-to-TTL chip in it, have you downloaded, installed and selected the older, but compatible, Prolific v3.2.0.0 device driver? See the Miklor.com "Drivers and USB Cables":http://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_Drivers.php page for details.

Assuming you are on Windows - open the Device Manager, look for Ports(COM & LPT) and check the USB Serial Port
If you have a Prolific chip, follow Jim's tips.
If your cable has a CH340 type chip, you may have little success. I tried with the same cable and various drivers on multiple OS versions without success.

You might want to look at an "FTDI USB programming cable for UV-9Rplus". FTDI is a stable chipset that seems to work with many Baofeng UV9R variants.

Chirp should then work connected as UV-82WP, UV-82III, BF-A58 or GT-3WP.
