| With little information, there is no way for me to say for sure, but
| my guess is, yes, you will experience issues uploading to an
| unsupported radio.
| 
| When I add support for a new radio, I analyze the data stream
| bit-for-bit to make sure I understand everything that is being
| transferred. Then I write the Chirp driver so that what it sends to
| the radio is indistinguishable from what is sent by the manufacturer's
| software or a clone from another radio.
| 
| It doesn't sound like you have done any analysis of the data from the
| FT-270, so writing to it would be just a guess, risky business.

Thanks for your answer, Tom.

Actually, the imported chirp data (at least the memory channels) looks legit.
I am rather concerned about the Settings data.
I could upload the .img file if this helps.
