Which version of chirp?

The radio should already be in clone mode before clicking OK on the
clone settings box in chirp. Once you see the empty progress bar, then
you can initiate the transfer from the radio side.

I don't have a 2800 but I know they are extremely picky. Maybe one of
the other 2800 owners here can comment.
