[chirp_users] FT-60 help please

Found strange thing.  To make it read I had to HOLD DOWN the PTT.  Not just
press it.  Read fine and I have a good file here.  Now the darn thing won't
write to the radio.  Is there a sequence for that I am missing?  It is in
--RX-- mode and seems ok except for the Error and not working.
Thins radio is very new.  Might Yaesu have made firmware changes to Cloning?

Thanks all!
