[chirp_users] Setting up banks/groups on Yaesu VX-3

Eventually I got it to work, after a bit more research and fiddling. As you note, you do need to set up a bank with a channel in the radio from the front panel first. After that I could upload over the top of it and make it work.

It also wasn't clear about how to actually access the banks via the radio controls, but eventually that sorted itself out as well.

Unfortunately, I didn't download an image from the radio and set it, as you suggested. I may have saved an earlier version though (pre-bank) so it could be compared pre- and post- bank setting. Perhaps that might show something useful. I'll dig around and see what I have.

Thanks much for the assistance!

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.
