[chirp_users] Tuning step roadblock

I took your frequencies,entered 156.2025 into the first cell of Chirp.
left everything else to the left of Duplex unchanged. I can enter 159.000
as the split offset and upload to the radio. Configured this way the radio
receives on 156.2025 and transmits on 159.000. Now, I can delete the template
and read anew from the radio. What is odd is the split offset turns into a + offset
of 2.797500. That still gives you 159.000 TX. I just thought it odd the radio would
return those settings. Also you question about the 2Tone decode. Unfortunately 
at least for the UV-5R I don't see a DTMF decode mode for squelch. And the squelch
value for your radio is probably the same as the UV-5R which is 0 - 9. I find a level
of 7 adequate.

Thanks Jim, that did the trick. I did figure out what "tuning step" meant around 3am, but didn't want to write back and admit that I was still up and obsessing over it :)  I'm glad I went to bed.

I have all my channels configured now, except for the "page"
      channel on the Icom that I wish to emulate in the Baofeng. In the
      Icom, the channel is muted until it receives a 2-tone page signal.
      I can see how it is set up in the Icom CS-F14 program, but I'm not
      finding any functionality like that in CHIRP. When I click on
      "Settings" in CHIRP, I only get a blank field. Can I do this in
      CHIRP? I see nothing in the wiki about functions like this.

And, perhaps similarly, in CS-F14 under Common>Set Mode there
      is a squelch value variable that has been set to 125. Is that
      something I need to set in the UV-B5?

Thanks much! Doug

I have submitted a patch that will restore programming the UV-B5/B6 with CHIRP to a 2.5 KHz resolution and still fix the issue the previous patch was intended to address.
