Make sure you have the 2-pin plug filly inserted into the socket. It
is real easy on the UV-82 to think it is all the way in when it really
isn't. Also, if using Windows, make sure the com port assigned to the
programming cable hasn't changed. Plugging into a different USB port
can cause this and CHIRP will select the one used last time (which
which in that case would be wrong). Use Device Manager to see which
com port has been assigned your programming cable.
