Hey, all.

I picked up a UV-B5 and am unable to program it with chirp. The console
output is as follows:

%chirpw


ERROR: -- Exception: --
ERROR: Traceback (most recent call last):

I've tried two different cables to no avail, and yes I had them seated.
Not a windows environment so I don't think the IP hindrance is the
issue. The radio's xmit light comes on but it seams to not be able to
communicate with chirp.

How can I provide more information to be helpful?

Thanks in advance.

Be well,
Scott


Also, props to all the dev's and users whom have helped make chirp what
it is!
