Hi Jan,

> 1.  the memory names are not populated in CHIRP's display.

Just to be sure, you are using 0.1.11b7, right?  I think this was fixed
already for the F6A in a previous beta.

Did you do a from-source install previously and maybe now are running
directly from the source tarball?  That could be part of the problem.
I'd either do an install of this one to overwrite the old one, or clean
out the files installed in the rest of the system so you know that
you're running the current version.

This might be related to the above as well.  Are you able to make
changes to existing memory channels?

That's just the debug code being silly, it wouldn't be getting this far
if it didn't know it was an F6A :)

When you try the above, if it still doesn't work, it would be helpful to
see the whole debug log.  If you're running from the command line,
something like:

  ./chirpw >file_for_dan.txt 2>&1

would work.

Yeah, 0.1.10 didn't support it at all.
