It's likely not to do anything.

You can try to download from the FT-2600, and if the memory map is 
identical to the one in the FT-2800, then it may even work. But most 
likely it will just tell you that the model is not supported.

Upload will definitely fail. Chirp has preventive mechanisms to not 
upload even if just the firmware version of the same brand and model 
differs from what Chirp knows, let alone if the model is unknown to 
Chirp. That way it won't be able to brick your radio.

When you try to download data from your FT-2600 using the FT-2800 
settings, please collect the debug log as described in the Wiki. Even if 
it doesn't work, it possibly gives the developers some valuable insight.
