    Download Chirp and use it to program the radio. Better software. Install it, set the com port then read the radio first. Then enter your frequencies you want to store them upload them to the radio.

    I messed around with the software that came with the radio, then I used CHIRP.

    Many thanks for your reply I will give it a go ...I think it could be a Windows 7 thing as I have tried it on three machines and the home page continually flickers .....Cant be just me ?????

    Do you have the radio plugged into the puter when you try running. I had that problem when I first tried installing it without having the radio connected.

    I have had many issues programming my advice is to grab the the latest chirp daily build and the VIP and continue trying both several times until you can get it to work annoying I know but hey its a $50 ht the other thing is I'm not sure they have a working combo for win 7 I have my netbook stripped down running win xp just for my ht programming

    I have put a tutorial online for getting the drivers working under Windows 7.

    Visit and select Resources, Baofeng Radio Information.

    It is a work in progress and any feedback to make it easier to understand is appreciated.
