Hi Al,

Sorry for the delayed response...

No, CHIRP behaves like most other programming software in that it shows
the values of settings that aren't in use. 023 is a DTCS code, but if
you don't have your Tone mode set to DTCS, then the value is not being
used. Try toggling View->Hide Unused Fields.

Hmm, that doesn't sound right. Can you send me a copy of the image you
were working on so I can try to reproduce the behavior?
