> One of the key parts is that you have to know 100% which serial port the radio is connected to.  Chirp is not able to figure this out on it own.  It has to 100% be sure that if the radio is on the USB RS232 adapter that is labeled as Com 14, that you use that port and that port only.  Otherwise, you will get the failure you are seeing.
