I am trying to use CHIRP with an Icom IC-208H and am getting an error back of "Clone failed: Failed to communicate with the radio: Unexpected response from radio"

Running on Windows 10, and have tried two commercial USB cables and one homemade RS-232 cable with a USB adapter, same result on each cable.

Thank you very much!

I jumped to gun on this, tried a fourth cable, and it is working great with the IC-208H. Please feel free to close this issue.
