>> Regarding Firmware. If you refuse to provide Firmware to CHIRP programmers I will stop supporting your business & stop using your radios. I have sent you a lot of sales because of CHIRP & how easy it is to use. I love your radios & CHIRP. Together they are great! Honestly your software sucks! It is very difficult to use. I will not try it again. I suggest you supply CHIRP with the UV-5RV2+ & any future firmware or I will boycott your products & send new radio interests elsewhere.
