So I finally came back to this, and found the same problem.  of course I didn't recall the keyspan problem so I busted my python2.6 install messing around :-)

A lot of messing around with python2.6 and a spiffy new python2.7 install later, and it's all good now, once I made the same two changes above to chirp v 0.1.11b4  (although the line numbers are no  longer a match)


and a dumb question - having not paid much attention, is there a way to get the "A" side of a 92AD to export?
