Sounds like another example of this:

Here's what you can do:
1. Save the .img as you have it now.
2. Use the front panel on the radio to add a channel to a bank. This
should set all the enabled bits associated with the bank.
3. Download from the radio. Save the new .img with another filename.
4. Create a new bug issue and attach both img files (search first,
there might already be a bug report for this behavior on the VX3). You
can mark your new issue as related to #409 if you want. A developer
should be able to look at your two .img files and, based on your
description of which channel you added to which bank, determine what
bits need to be set.
