Well, a week has gone by.  I ran the comms for the 5 Boro Bike Tour last
Sunday with 34,000 bikes over 40 miles.  Since I could not get my D710GA
programmed for it, I had to use my Anytone5888 which has never given me
problems.  So I am back at the Kenwood problem tonight.  To start things
off, I hand programmed about 50 memories in the MCP software and did an
upload "in one go" without this "live mode" jazz.  Everything is working
perfectly.  Now I go to Chirp, go to Download From Radio and choose the
Kenwood on the same Comm Port as the MCP and ..... NOTHING!  Not one
channel downloads into Chirp.  Nothing on any type of scroll bar.  :(

Can anyone who has used Chirp with the D710GA tell me anything?  No
armchair theorists please.
