[chirp_users] Chirp no work - on Windows, try Linux if possible

Hi Billy

I find that I can only get Chirp to work with my BaoFeng UV-5REs when I
do it with Linux. I get the same as you when I use Windows. It might be
the cable (I use the one I got when I bought the UV5REs), or it might be
the software, but if you can get access to a Linux you should be okay
even with a basic after-market cable.

Kind regards, Mark Dixon, VK6EZ.
