To program my radios, I had to find the right COM PORT on my computer.  Once I got it right, it all worked fine.

>     Thanks.  You were right, I am using Windows XP and got CHIRP to open.  I had checked cherpw, but did not recognize what popped up.  I am now trying to get my computer to recognize my Baofeng, but I think that is a hardware problem.  I'll work on it some more if I have time during the week.
