Puxing PX-2R errors reading/writing memories, fails miserably.

Chirp Version:daily Platform:Linux
Model affected:Puxing PX-2R



CHIRP daily-20190120 On Linux Mint 19.1 64 bit, installed from Chirp ppa.

Trying to read and write to my Puxing PX-2R, fails.

Reading sort of happens, but the data extracted as shown is very wrong.

Writing (if you try) either after a lot of editing of the .img file, or creating new from scratch, "bricks" the rig, needing a factory reset, and loss of what might have been in the memories already. (Done that several times now!)

I can happily talk to myself with a serial com's program (cutecom) via the programming lead, so that appears OK.

Debug log attached (zipped) also the output from Chirpw when launched from a terminal to do the same, as well as the .img as chirp creates it.

Memories 1 & 2 have local UHF repeaters in (GB3MK 433.000 + 1.6MHz shift. And GB3NP 430.8875 + 7.6MHz shift) but show as "empty"

Memory 3 has a PBR frequency in (461.5125) that sort of shows but is shown wrong.

All the other memories ARE empty.;

Log and .img files attached as zips. (Plain zip format.)

Using Chirp with a Kenwood TM-V71 works fine.
