> Hi, I am hoping someone can help. I have a Baofeng UV5 which I got to work perfect with chirp. I ordered a UV82 and can not get it to communicate to chirp. I have downloaded the latest version of chirp, tried going back to a older com port driver and no success. I am running win8 / 64 bit and using driver version which is supposed to be the latest driver. When I try to download from the new uv82 I keep getting error has occurred, could not open port com3: {error 2} the system can not find the file specified.
