Ah, I need to add that in.

Yep.  I don't use the skip flag normally, but I know I'll need to cover 
all of these things in the future.  If we can get the GUI bits of 0.1.7 
finished and out the door, I'd like to make 0.1.8 more of a radio 
feature release.  Specifically, I want bank membership and power levels 
to work :)

That's usually a result of a low battery.  I haven't changed anything in 
that layer to cause any different behavior, so I imagine that's what 
you're seeing.  I need to add in some retry logic to catch that specific 
problem and try the memory again.

So, how about one more beta with tune step in the CSV and then call it 
good? :)
