Description

Hi, I'm executing following procedure:
1. Turn radio off.
2. Connect cable to DATA jack.
3. Press and hold in the [MHz(PRI)] key while turning the
radio on.
4. Rotate the DIAL job to select "F-7 CLONE".
5. Press and hold in the [BAND] key. The display
will disappear for a moment, then the "CLONE" notation
will appear.
6. After clicking OK, press the [V/M(MW)] key to send image.

After step#6 application is reporting following error:
"ord() expected a character, but string of length 0 found"
and transceiver displays ERROR

Application is running on Windows 7 SP1
port is successfully detected as COM8

I get the same problem with FT7800. Ubuntu 19.10, chirp daily from today . Is there a PySerial problem?

Attaching debug.log

I think these are actually two different problems.
The originally reported problem was under Windows, and I would suspect a cable, connector, or USB-to-Serial driver issue.
The problem in the post above under Linux is probably a port assignment issue: is that cable really on port /dev/ttyUSB0, and does the application have access to it?

Anyhow, perhaps one of the following documents might help:
CableGuide
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
