Hello Guy,

Those three fields you're speaking of (UR, R1, & R2) are for DStar 
radios and they shouldn't be displayed for the F6A.  I need to actually 
check out the newest daily of Chirp since I recently filed a bug where 
Chirp learned memories from my F6A that had "/" in the memory field such 
as "N6NFI/r" were lost when copying over to my IC80 Dstar radio.  You 
very issue could have come up due to my bug report.  Lemmie go look to 
see what happens here in my shack.
