[chirp_users] Baofeng error “radio not responding “

Hi Jim,

Sorry to bother you again.

I  have come to the conclusion that I may have a defective cable or the
cable is not seating enough to make sufficient  contact.  I hit the
"download from radio" and absolutely nothing happens.  The radio is on and
the cable is tightly secured (as much as possible).  The screen remains
blank and I don't get a box to enter any other information.  This radio (UV
9R Plus) has a unique cable that differs from other Baofengs.

I'm about ready  to send the radio and cable back and buy a different
radio.  I picked this one because it  is waterproof.

You have been very kind with your suggestions.

Thanks again,
