Will Chirp support the Yaesu FT2600M?

There are a lot of Yaesu radios, and not all of them use the same programming protocol. I'm only really familiar with the newer Yaesu HTs, namely the FT-4 and FT-65. The protocol for these radios controls the memory access fairly tightly, so accidentally writing into the wrong place is unlikely. You can access memory you are not supposed to by writing special software, but the CHIRP driver does not do this.  Older Yaesu radios use a much cruder protocol and it is theoretically possible to mess up and hit the wrong memory, but I don't personally have knowledge of this, we will need to see who else responds.

Has anyone had a problem programming a Yaesu radio with CHIRP?

Someone mentioned that their Yaesu was damaged and had to be sent to the factory because CHIRP had overwritten some code controlling the processor.  It also had to be re-flashed.

Since I don't fully understand how CHIRP works this doesn't make sense to me, but knowing manufacturing companies, they may share Channel Memory with processor memory and not think much about it.

Thanks for your information.
