1. I have a few baofengs now. wondering if they will eventually get their 
own names in the model dropdown, rather than the shareing, ie gt-3tp iii as 
the BF-F8HP .

2. i have a dm-5r coming next week, im guessing it will just use the same as 
uv-5r. not sure have the extra settings will feature yet tho.

3. oh, 1 more thing, i have a freq to store in either  bf, 133.600mhz. but 
chirp reports ...bugger, just going to look....ahh, Error setting memory: 
Frequency 133.600000 is out of supported range.
altho i recieve on radio ok. i tried manually putting into the radio mem ok. 
read the radio into chirp ok, i see the freq ok, but when i try to change to 
skip, i get the same msg of course. (uv5r&gt3tpiii)

4. have a good weekend :-)

> Greetings,
> A new daily build of CHIRP is available.  This includes changes made

> A list of the changes included in this build (since the last daily)
> follows:
> Changes for Build #464
> [Dan Smith <dsmith at danplanet.com>] Avoid confusing BTECH UV-5X3 users with 
> UV-5X driver
> Reportedly people that are buying the (new) BTECH UV-5X3 radio
> are confused and choosing the Baofeng UV-5X model from the menus,
> which won't work. Many are just outright returning the radio as
> a result, assuming it's broken.
> Since there are a million UV-5R variants and this is likely to
> get worse, this patch adds a blacklist of similar magic strings
> from radios that may be confused easily. If we fail to probe the
> radio that was selected, we can probe for the blacklist magics,
> and if any reply, raise a specific error to the user indicating
> that they chose the wrong model.
> #4539
