I'm familiar with the above issue. Chirp and the programming cable (FTDI 
USB serial adaptor and Kenwood compatible cable) work fine with 
everything else I have and is set to COM4.

So far I've not managed to find this anywhere. I've contacted the seller 
and awaiting their response. https://baofengradio.co.uk is the site 
where I saw some of the software available but it's offline today.

Thanks for your help so far Jim.
