Hi all,

> follows:

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!
