I don't think that is true of all radios.  There is nothing in the radio
that precludes writing to it on hookup other than the initial handshake.

I think no matter what radio you are programming you always need to download
from the radio first.

I was able to successfully use the latest daily build on both my 251, and
291 versions of UV-5R. What you cannot do, is load one radio, then go to the
other radio, and load it. When you go to the other version, you need to
download from the radio, the open the file with all your saved info, and
upload it to the new radio. In other words, download from the radio, even if
you do not intend to use the file, that seems to be what tells chirp what
version radio you have.

I read something about there being diffrent versions which require separate
programming software.

I think it was on the Baeofeng USA website.

I have had success using both CHIRP and Baofeng software in downloading and
uploading from a Baofeng UV-5R,  Version BFB 251 120702 VER-05 which belongs
to a mate.

However, my own model UV-5R, Version BFB 291 120828N B5R0001 does not
respond. Any suggestions?
