Target version:chirp-daily
Chirp Version:daily Platform:Windows
Model affected:Yaesu FT-7900R


Can successfully download from FT-7900R.
Uploads fail almost immediately with "Error reading echo (Bad cable?)"

Troubleshooting steps:
1. Tried different laptop.
2. Tried different USB<>Serial Driver (Gigaware USB<>Serial Cable, #2603487).
3. Tried different serial<>radio cable.
4. Tried differemt version of Chirp, from back in December 2015.

In desperation, I tried George Freeth's FTB7900 software, which I used to use before Chirp, and it worked.
