Hello ,

totally new to this world, so hang with me a bit.

i purchased the UV-B6 the other day. never could get the PL-2303 driver to work on Win7. the cd that came with the cable didn't only had drivers for XP & Vista. tried Vista driver too. downloaded   1.1.19 driver, that didn't work under Win7 either.

so i fired up an old XP notebook, and poof, the XP PL driver installed and is working and i have Chirp installed on that machine too.

i'm trying to initiate a download so i can create my first template. didn't even know to do that if i hadn't gone to this site:   http://www.miklor.com/UVB5/UVB5-CHIRP.php

of course now the Chirp sw is returning the radio didn't ack programming mode. my eyes just don't see anywhere in the manual that came with the UV-B6 what key-combo? needed to put this unit in programming mode.

is there like a wiki for "uv-b6 dummies" or something that would help me get started?
