It looks like either the memory layout has change or your radio needs
reset. This is what the "Ident" should look like.

AA 36 74 04 00 05 20 DD

It is a record of the factory band limits and is the same format for all
UV-5R variants since the BFB291 firmware was released.

36 = VHF lower limit of 136 MHz
74 = VHF upper limit of 174 MHz
04 00 = UHF lower limit of 400 MHz
05 20 = VHF upper limit of 520 MHz

And yours looks to me like

aa 01 01 36 01 74 01 04

01 = separator
01 36 = VHF lower limit
01 = separator
01 74 = VHF upper limit
01 = separator
just guessing beyond this point
04 00 = UHF lower limit
01 = separator
05 20 = UHF upper limit

If I am correct, this first part of memory has been expanded and all of the
memory mapping afterwords is offset. So even if you got past this "Radio
refused clone" error, the settings would be all wrong.

Are you able to get this radio to work with the Baofeng software?
