works! now to figure out how to use VX7 Commander:

jcomeau@aspire:~$ vx7clone -d /dev/ttyUSB0 -o old.vx7
open port /dev/ttyUSB0 ...
1) power up VX-7 with [MON/F] pressed
2) press [Enter] on Keyboard (PC)
3) press [BAND] within 30 s

reading block 1: - ok (Ack: 06) reading block 2: - ok (Ack: 06) reading block 3: ................................ - ok close /dev/ttyUSB0 Check Sums: E5/E5 E5/E5 DF/DF (ok) checking check sums - ok open output file 'old.vx7'

this was with a cheap Chinese-made serial to USB adapter I got on eBay, along with the usual CT-91 plus 3/16 to 1/8 adapter.
