    Hey all,
    I am trying to get the programming software for the UV5RA, I have not been able to use the software for the UV5R, every time I try it tells me it cannot communicate to the radio. Anyone have any suggestions or can send me a copy of the software. I have the proper drivers and cable installed(I think).

    Try CHIRP - it's open source and written in English. You will need to download the most recent nightly build to work with a UV-5, but that worked fine for me.

    Get CHIRP here:

    Well so far no luck. I tried with the cd that came with the cable, I tried the different drivers and right now I am downloading last nights build of CHIRP. I keep getting a error. I will copy the new error if there is one with the new build. This is supposed to be the newest radio which is the UV5RA...for some reason I just cant seem to get it to work. I am using Windows 8 and im wondering if that or the radio version that is causing the issue.

    According to this web page, the only difference is firmware.

    Where are you getting that error? After clicking "Download from Radio"? Or after selecting the COM port and clicking okay?

    I tried to test it under my Evaluation Copy of Win 8, but it wouldn't allow me to install the drivers for the cable, so I couldn't get any farther.

    If it would be easier, feel free to email me at the address listed on my QRZ page.

    KG6YFS, did you ever get this figured out? I was finally able to get my UV-5R+ programmed just yesterday and might be able to help you out.

    No still have not been able to get it programmed. How did you get it programmed?

    The main issue I had was the driver for the cable. For that, I used ZONE3's link ( and used the "Choose from a list of drivers" option as shown in his screen shots. The other issue was with the Com port... I noticed the Baofeng program doesn't save what COM port it goes into, so you have to configure that every time you run the program.
