Yaesus are generally pretty easy to write support for. They all use
the same clone "protocol" (really just a dump of their memory with no
protocol per se). Start with a similar model and try a Download From
Radio. If it's an exact match, everything will work fine. If not, an
error will be reported. You'll want to save the .img and inspect it
with a hex editor after the failed download. Tweak memsize to make
sure you get the whole thing.

This type of conversation is more appropriate for the chirp_devel list:
