I am new to Ham radios and am currently unlicensed.  Hopefully taking test
this month I recently bought a Baofeng F8HP and data cable from
BaoFengtech.com and other accessories

I Tried installing CHIRP on my Mac OS Sierra Version 10.12.6 13" Mid 2010
MacBook Pro

1)  Installed CHIRP MAC OS Unified Application as well as
KK7DS_Python_Runtime_R10    
The application downloaded and unzipped.  When I clicked on icon I was asked
to confirm to open and clicked ok,  my screen "flashed" slightly and then
nothing came up on the menu bar and nothing in dock  I tried opening from
download folder then moved it to Applications folder and still nothing.
Then I tried deleting and reinstalling 3 or 4 times

2)  I deleted that version and tried installing Mac Os LegacyAapplication 
    When I opened this version the CHIRP Menus showed up in menu bar however
non of the menu links worked

3) After many hours of research I Installed Homebrew, and Virtual COM Port
Drivers for FTDI devices as well as opening Terminal and executed various
commands suggested from the net and nothing seemed to work.

I am not programming literate although I am able to follow instructions.  I
have tried every combination I could think of to install and run CHIRP 

If anyone is able to help me I would greatly appreciate it.  I checked out
FAQ's and Issues and bugs lists and all similar issues seem to revolve
around the legacy version.

Thanks
Joe.

Hi everyone,

Windows 10 computer

I am trying to clone the Yaesu FT8900R (this is the first time)

I use CHIRP and I follow the CHIRP instructions (same as in Yaesu manual)

I turn on the radio, go to F6 "clone start", then push "set"

Nothing happens...after a few seconds, I get error message stating it could
not find the item location (com port).  Tried several times on all four
active ports.

Checked "device manager" and the four ports are active and well

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Joe

You have to select the USB port that your radio is connected to.

Use Device Manager to see what comm port you are connected to. Unplug and
plug back in your cable, the one you are using will disappear and come back.
Next, check the driver and cable model name. If it shows you are using a
Prolific cable, roll back your driver to 3.2.0.0. 

When you are going thru the clone process, always read the radio first,
modify your file, then write to the radio. When the instructions says to
push the Set button, it is the fastest push you can do and release, don?t
press too long.

Thank you very much quick response. It is very much appreciated

I am using an FTDI  chipsets table that I purchased from one of our fellow
amateur colleagues.

I will try your suggestion in the morning and let you know how it goes.
Assuming it goes well, you win the lottery

I'm a new user so don't kill me.? I just got a Baofeng UV5-R and have a few

Power-On Message 1 and Power-On Message 2? and then it has Power-On Message?
choice of full or message.????? What is what?? Which is the message i see
when I power on and what is the other one and what's the difference between
Full or Message???? I wanted to put an?? IF Found and my phone number in
there but i guess it only allows 7 digits is that right?

I'm programming this like a scanner so i'm most interested in Scanning.? 
I'm still confused about the 2 frequencies on the display.? if I'm scanning
and then freq below has activity, they radio doesn't receive it.. so it's
like why is it even there? Maybe i'm doing it wrong.

Hi Robert,

Nearly all of these questions have to do with how your radio works, not how
CHIRP works. If you would care to email me directly with these questions, I
will do my best to answer them for you.

Joe,

You don't select a USB port. The radio uses serial communications. The
programming cable has a chip inside that when used with the appropriate
device driver installed in the Windows operating system, creates a virtual
serial port (COM port) for the programming software to connect to. Follow
the advice provided by Jardy in an earlier reply.

Sorry, you select the COM port that connects to your USB device.

You have a USB to serial COM port adapter and it connects to your computer.
If you unplug it, you can see the COM port disappear when you unplug the USB
cable, plug it back in, and make note of the COM port used.

Sorry, I goofed on the answer,

I am using a IMac I am having trouble getting to the page to upload my
frequencies to Chirp. I have downloaded Chirp, then I get to a page that
says do you wish to donate.  Where do I go from there?

Morning, I find using the Yaesu software is better than CHIRP.

Yaesu does not have software. Are you referring to RT Systems software?

Joe,

You don't select a USB port. The radio uses serial communications. The
programming cable has a chip inside that when used with the appropriate
device driver installed in the Windows operating system, creates a virtual
serial port (COM port) for the programming software to connect to. Follow
the advice provided by Jardy in an earlier reply.

I have managed to upload from radio and the frequencies show on the screen.
But the screen is greyed out how do I access to manually input new channels?

It is hard to understand what you mean. You don't "upload from radio".
You either "download from radio to computer" or "upload from computer to
radio".

More details like which operating system your computer uses, which chip is
in your programming cable and which version of CHIRP you are using.

Attaching a debug.log might also be useful for diagnosing the problem.
This page explains how to locate the debug.log file for the various CHIRP
supported operating systems.
https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/How_to_report_issues

Also a common cause of lockups in Windows 10 is a corrupt chirp.config file.
You can delete or rename the chirp.config file and the next time CHIRP is
launched a new chirp.config file will be created. Another way to get a new
chirp.config file in Windows is to uninstall CHIRP using the Add/Remove
Programs application and then install CHIRP again.
