Another one , except this one can't be programmed from the set :-/
So...
I've Got the correct software , Im using the cable which works all my other kenwood type fitting chinese radios with no issues , but will not read the radio . The usual "Check connections@ message is all.
No info on how to actually programme it in the manual , nobody on Internet talks if them .
So...
I'm stuffed at the moment , with a nice door stopper!

With no offer of compensation other than to return it at my cost to China , the loss will be mine.
The Seller :
"ESHOW.DEALS"
I would advise all to stay clear of this seller.

This is also a USB-serial adapter ..
Only other chipsets.
So you do not have the driver problems as with the Prolific chipset.
So I program all my devices!

I might try my USB to serial adaptor lead which I have and see what this dose?
Also Ive just taken delivery of a clone lead which Im going to try when I receive my keypad version of this radio through the post . I will programme this by hand and then attempt to clone it with the unprogramnable Baofeng .

In my UV82 I found no software from the manufacturer.
On the RU servers I have the software found.The is strange!
On the device is at the top and bottom only UV Dual Band 400-520 MHz.
Dual band for UHF frequencies??
