BF-F8HP - Radio did not respond
Radio was previously programming with Chirp. After latest CHIRP update, get message on any connect attempt "Radio did not respond".
Clone Progress bar displays, but does not advance, radio backlight comes on and radio reboots, Clone progress bar still does not advance, then the message "Radio did not respond" appears.
debug file attached.
I am helping an old Vietnam vet who is trying to get into HAM radio. He lives alone and doesn't have a lot of money. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the late response. Have you been able to resolve this on your own since you submitted this?
Windows: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version 184.108.40.206.

MacOS: this OS is apparently very picky about USB to Serial cables. From what I heard, only (genuine) FTDI-based cables can be made work.
You must have the KK7DS Python runtime for Mac OSX installed.
