This is supposedly a three power model. I have tried a few models on CHIRP, the included BAOFENG software and attempted a download from the ABBREE website, all with what I would call negative results. It was a package deal with an included Baofeng cable (Prolific USP) that that Windows 10 said was working. Any help would be appreciated, especially knowing if there is a model I can select on CHIRP that has worked for others.

Hi Troy,

The BF-F8HP is most likely the model to choose. It is used for all of
the other UV-5R type radios with 3 power levels. You are most likely
going to have to download, install and select the older Prolific
device driver.
