Robert is correct. The CHIRP stable build was released in April of
2014. Support for the BF-F8HP wasn't available until after that.
That's why the "Supported Radio Models" list on the CHIRP home page
says "BF-F8HP (in daily builds)". It is important to use a CHIRP daily
build from September 2014 or after for Baofeng radios. The CHIRP
v0.4.x stable build should not be used for Baofeng radios.
