  • Status changed from New to Feedback
  • Target version set to chirp-daily
  • Model affected changed from ID-80H to Icom ID-80H

Chirp appears to have some problems with Icom radios when the cable uses an FTDI chip. Try a Prolific cable, use a more expensive one with a genuine chip, if you can. Here are some generic bits of information about cables:
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
Windows notes: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version
It can be found at http://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_Drivers.php
MacOS notes: 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.
Also see MacOS Tips!
Linux notes: Linux generally is quite good with USB to Serial converter drivers. The most likely cause for grief is a connector which doesn't provide good electrical contact.
Bluetooth notes: connections often suffer from timing issues, please try a cable instead.

The serial code in the Icom driver has recently been reviewed.
Could you please try again and let us know whether this is resolved? Thanks!
