> A list of the changes included in this build (since the last daily)
As you can see, this list of changes is pretty long. This is something
I have been working on for several weeks on the side, and I really need
everyone's help testing each driver to make sure that it still behaves
as it should with this change. If you don't see someone reply here and
say that your model is okay, that means it's not tested!
This changes the core of the way CHIRP represents frequencies (and
offsets) internally. The method previously used was flawed and caused
several drivers to incorrectly round some frequencies off, which is
obviously a bad thing. This set of changes makes that a lot cleaner and
will fix a lot of issues, but it requires diligence to make sure that
all of the drivers got converted over. Just setting the frequency and
offset on a couple channels and making sure that the radio does the
right thing is all that needs to be done.
PLEASE, test this daily build on as many radios you have and let me know
that things are okay. I don't own all of these radios, so I NEED YOUR HELP!
