That did it, I ground out the underside of the connector.

Now works perfect.

Thanks.Jack

The issue of the cable seating in the radio is especially likely with the
GT-3, as it has rounded sides which can prevent the cable from seating.  I
had to use a knife to trim my cable before it would work with the GT-3.

Tried using UV-5R setting on my new GT-3 but it does not communicate with
the radio.
Any suggestions?

1. Make sure you have a compatible driver installed. Programming cables with
Prolific chips almost always require you to use an older or patched driver
to be compatible.

Windows XP: V2.0.2.1

Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1: V3.2.0.0

Mac OS X

http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/MacOS_Tips (generic drivers)

Linux

Compatible drivers are often already installed. Give CHIRP Live CD a try
(you can "burn" it to a USB flash drive). Since the OS is Xubuntu Linux, if
this works with your programming cable and Windows or OS X doesn't work, you
have at least determined the problem is not your programming cable or CHIRP.

 

2. Make sure the cable is fully plugged into the radio. This trips up a lot
of owners of the UV-5R (and variants like the GT-3).
