Hello Keith,
Since nobody has answered yet, thought I'd suggest that your problem may
be a computer or connection problem. Are you sure that the memory on
your Windows computer is ok - have you tried a different usb port or
cable - I've noticed that ports on the rear of some computers are
sometimes more reliable than ones on the front. Have you downloaded the
Chirp live cd and tried booting and downloading with that. Have you
tried re-setting your radio memory to factory defaults?

OT, looked at your QRZ page, hoped to see a picture of that Willys...I
was a kid in the 50's and loved those Willys, Crosley, and Nash
