Hi Bob!

....mmm.... is it possible that the radio previously have been software 
In that case the radio after the reset is back to its original 
configuration and thus refuse the image which it believe is coming from 
a different country ft817.

What I can't explain is the download error "Unable to read block 00 
expected 4 got 4" which means that radio have sent a block of correct 
length but with wrong sequence number.

I suggest you to do a full reset of radio (HOME+power), start a fresh 
chirp and try to download once again.
BTW com speed is always 9600 baud during clone, it doesn't care what you 
put in CAT rate.

For the batteries I just suggested on the 817 list this
