Greetings,

A new daily build of CHIRP is available.  This includes changes made
directly to the tree yesterday, and may include additional features,
bug fixes, and/or bugs.  If you are interested in trying it, grab it

A list of the changes included in this build (since the last daily)
follows:

Changes for Build #516
[nicolas jon pike <nicolas.jon.pike at gmail.com>] New Model #5329
FT70 Driver I now have enough of the driver working to be useful.
Read / write memories, a number of the settings, and import from RepeaterBook work.
Saving modes dn,vw and AMS in memory channels, do not currently work.
Banks have not been tested - may now work, VFO settings not implemented (etc)

I have also raised a request for C4FM to be added to CHIRP Modes.

[Mathias Weyland <lt-betrieb at hb9uf.ch>] [Alinco DJ-G7] Introduce empty flag, mode & frequency range checks.

At the time I was adding support for the DJ-G7 radio, I was not aware of a flag
that was used to hide memory channels in the main band. The main band only
supports a subset of modes and frequencies on this radio. My original code used
this flag improperly, such that a channel was never hidden from the main band
regardless of its settings. This does not do any harm to the radio, but such a
memory channel is useless in the main band due to hardware constraints.

More importantly, the original programming software by Alinco crashes when
operating on a memory map pulled from a radio programmed with chirp if the flag
is not used correctly. After some discussions with and advice from Emiel, I
have completed a patch that adds proper support for this flag. The patch is
attached. See #5275 for a more in-depth discussion of the issue.
