HI, I have a Yaesu FT-8000R dual band radio that I would like to help get supported in CHIRP.
I can loan the radio and cable. The radio is modified for wide RX/TX.

If useful, I can provide a PDF of the user manual & 23 pages (only) of the service manual. The USB FTDI cable is from Valley Enterprises "Yaesu USB FT-7800 FTDI 10 feet". Also known as part#: RPC-Y7800-U-3M. You may already have a similar cable.

I believe that this is the right cable, and it does fit into the back of the radio. I got the idea that the cable for the 7800 is the same as for the 8000 because RT Systems offers their same cable for 9 different Yaesu radios including the 8000 & 7800.

I tried using the CHIRP setting for Yaesu 7800 to download from this FT-8000R without success.
