    It sounds like your radio is ok. Do not defeat the swr protection. You will smoke your radio. Take the antenna off of the mag mount and check it again. Then disconnect the coax from it and check again. You have a problem with your antenna or mount.

    Man if the swr protect is set at 20 and it was going into protection mode it really was jacked up. I set mine to protect at a 3 for my own comfort

    If you are using Windows 10 with the default antivirus, it is probably being blocked by the antivirus. Not using the Wndows 10 antivirus right now, so I can't remember exactly where to go into the antivirus settings to make the change. If the antivirus is blocking the program, you will be able to see in the settings that it is being blocked, so just change it to allow, and the program should work.

    If it's a desktop computer, try the USB ports on the back instead of the front. On my desktop computer, my digital camera--for some odd reason--will not work right with the front USB ports, but it works fine using the ports on the back of the computer. The front USB ports work just fine with USB drives, but will not work with my digital camera.
