[chirp_users] Tuning step roadblock

I'm new to this realm, and have been lurking for a few days (you've been
helpful already). I'm very stuck, and it's past 2am, so I'm gonna ask
y'all so I can go to bed knowing I've done all I can do for one night.
I'm a volunteer firefighter, trying to set up a new Baofeng UV-B5 just
like the Icom IC-F14 that I was issued. This is both a trial on behalf
of the department, and a learning experience for me as I study for my
tech license. I don't need the ticket for my firefighter duties, but am
finally going for it after wanting to do so for many years.
I got a cable and software that allowed me to take an image off the
Icom. Between that and radio info from the county, I should have all I
need to set up the UV-B5 with Chirp. I think I'm fairly well along the
path of figuring this out...?
Here's what I'm stuck on. I took an image off the Baofeng to use as a
template. I'm trying to enter the RX freq of 156.2025 into the first
memory channel. When I do so, I get the error "Tuning step 2.50 not
supported...Frequency requires 2.50kHz step." I need to configure the
channel to receive on 159.000, figured I'd set Duplex to Split and set
Offset to 159.000. I'll spare you all the work-arounds I've tried, and
the other errors I've seen, 'cause I'm starting to wonder if my radio
won't support this "step", and I'm left to wonder what the heck "Tune
step" and "channelize" are anyway? I've looked in the wiki, and done
some web searching, but so far no joy. Any light would be much appreciated!
