Description

Hello,
I have previously programmed the ft2900r with chirp with success, but now I am trying to update and it won't work. I keep getting "error" on the radio and "unable to communicate: header error" in chirp. I know this radio cloning procedure is a little convoluted, so what am I missing?
Thanks,
-Ron

I figured out the issue. When I save the file and open it back up, I noticed that is was saved as a (modded) file even though the downloaded file from the radio wasn't. That is one of the yaesu ft2900R/1900R options for download. The (modded) version does not work, but somehow gets saved that way, so that future recall of that file won't work.

To whom it may concern:

Ronald Donato was mistaken in his post #2 when he said that that a FT-2900R .img file is saved as a (modded) file. It isn't saved as a (modded) file, it's merely opened as a (modded) file.

The Chirp executable dated 3-23-2016 is the last one in the Daily Releases that behaves correctly in that respect. I can open any FT-2900R .img file just fine with that version, but any later Chirp version opens any FT-2900R .img file as a (modded) file and consequently thinks the radio is a (modded) version and will fail to upload the file to an un-modded radio.

That's the problem. I'm agreeable to assisting with a resolution in any way I can. I've attached a test FT-2900R .img file. That file opens as a non-(modded) file with any Chirp executable dated 3-23-2016 or earlier, but opens as a (modded) file by any subsequent version of Chirp.

Please let me know if I can be of any more help.

So, how can I find the download dated 3-23-16?
I tried everything (I believe) to make it work with my FT-2900M.
I uninstalled, reinstalled, used many of the older builds ( history dont go back to March.....) and it still says "Cant read header".
I'm running win 10. It worked on these radios with this computer in the last 6-8 months.....HELP!

Eric,

There looks to be one in the repository that is about 2 years old.
