Well, that's a good data point.  When importing your csv to my 2820, the
majority of the offenders were stations that used to be FM.  It could be
that there is one bit that I could set that would just cause everything
to ignore the rest, but I'm not sure what it is.

It takes so freaking long to clone the 2820 that I'm always apt to
choose the easiest route that works unless there is a real problem.
It's a pain to debug issues in that thing :)

Wow, unbelievable.  I can't imagine 115F heat!  I hope you are far
enough away that you won't have to worry about endangering yourself,
your family, or your home.  Be safe and good luck!
