[chirp_users] Port recognition issue

The way to tell which port is being used in Device Manager, is either plug in the cable with device manager open, and see what appears, or unplug the cord with device manager open, and see what goes away.
HTH.

  Hmmm.  Device Manager says: Port_#0003.Hub_#0001

  When I copy and paste that into CHIRP I get an error message:
  could not open port Port_#0003.Hub_#0001: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified

    You are most likely choosing the wrong port. Which port does Device Manager show as the port assigned to your programming cable? That is the one you must use.
