I've seen a similar bug 3 years ago with the UV-5r, but don't see this in the current bug list. Using a genuine FTDI programming cable (testing working with UV-B5).

Trying to download from UV-6, receiving error at the end "Radio refused to send second block 0x1 ec0". Tested this with several UV-6 radios, same error. I'm not terribly familar with CHIRP, so bear with me if it's something obvious.

Seeing the same problem, same error message "Radio refused to send second block 0x1ec0"

Using daily-20180412 and genuine FTDI cable.

Same computer, cable, version works perfectly with a UV-82 V2+

Same computer, cable, UV-6 works perfectly with Baofeng's UV-6/UV-7 software.

Same issue here. Genuine FTDI cable and CP2102 custom cable give the same error.
Older UV-6 versions work. The newer one CMIIT ID:2017FP2640 not.
