I bought 2 walkie-talkies Baofenf BF 888s. I programmed them with CHIRP and they worked great. A few days ago I found another software (888S PC Softvare) which I downloaded from this link: www.miklor.com/BF888/888-SW-BF888S.php
I programmed them with 888S PC Softvare but from that moment they noising on all channels all the time when they are turned on.
Something like lying them that there is a signal, but there isn’t signal and only noise is heard. Also, their range is now only 150 meters in the open and after that their signal does not reach. Their output power is 0.
Then I programmed them with CHIRP and a ready-made list of channels sent to me by my friend, but unfortunately the defect remained.
It is a software problem, physically they are great.
Does this ■■■■ 888S PC Softvare have any bag / virus so it damages the firmware of both walkie talkies?
Is there any solution, to fix it and to work normally as before?
