[chirp_users] Strange Situation

My error gentlemen. Should have shown the radio as TYT-TH3R which is in the drop down box of the program. As mentioned previously .. When I download from the radio to the computer all appears well as the radio connects to the computer, the light flashes on the radio when transferring data. However the contents of the radio do no show on the "grid" display. The display shows blank frequencies. There is a tab that shows on that screen something was downloaded but I seem to be unable to figure out where. I am obviously doing something wrong.
