Jim,

No, I haven't tried the Baofeng factory software yet, but I'll give it a 
try tonight when I can get to my Windows laptop.

If that works, is there anything you might want me to do with regards to 
getting an image or tracing something?

If not, do you recommend I do a factory reset and try CHIRP again?

Thanks,
Aubrey
