Or you could go all in and order a proper cable from Amazon for around 10

I just got on Ebay and ordered a CP-2102 chip ($3) and refitted my cables to
that.  Cheaper.

I have attached two YouTube videos for your review regarding the new Baofeng
Chirp cable.  The new cable referred to in the short video has a special
chip in the cable that you need to purchase. The YouTube videos will explain
everything well.

I'm VERY new at this so hope this question isn't off base!  I have a new
Baofeng UV-5R and have made my own cable to connect to it.  The cable I've
made is a DB9F to 3.5mm and 2.5mm plugs.  The USB to serial adapter that I
connect to is one that I've used with other things and works fine.  


With the connectors in the radio the display comes up with a solid black dot
matrix in the top frequency display and most of the info icons across the
top.  When I try to read the radio with CHIRP, I can see some data
communication on the lights of the USB/Serial interface and the radio
display changes to almost normal but then goes in to transmit mode and
everything stops.  I get an error indicating that "An error has occurred -
Radio did not respond".  


I'm hoping someone can suggest some things to look at to further
troubleshoot this!
