Thanks John

I have seen that as well.  For the one that I get a Chinese Character set,
I have been able to change to English.  The one program I think that can do
it has Zero characters on it (english or chinese) and everything is
replaced by a ???.

Again, I apologize for taking up the space on the Chirp reflector.

The best I can tell is that the actual program is called BF-480 based on
what I found on 409Shoppe's site.

I know the port and the cable work as I can use the same cable and same
port (FTDI) to read my UV-5R with Chirp.  I also know they aren't holding
open the port as I do close down Chirp before testing.  I have even tried
after a reboot with the BF-480 software being the first code used.

My note to self will be to check the Chirp support hardware list first
before ordering new hardware!  :)
