[chirp_users] Looking for assistance

I'm at the point now where I have tried all the suggestions to no 
avail.  I suppose I have to assume a faulty radio or cable, not operator 
error or wrong settings.  I will have to wait until I can take the radio 
back to the US with me next summer when I can have others take a look at 
it.  Thanks to all who made suggestions.
