> Hi all,
> I'm new to Chirp and testing it with a Baofeng F8+III (supposedly an
> update on the UV-5R).  I have successfully downloaded all the
> programmed frequencies (as both BF-F8HP and UV-5R models).  I named
> some of the channels and uploaded them, and now the radio shows the
> names I entered instead of the frequencies - great!
> However I am unable to name some of the channels as I get an error
> when I attempt to do so:
>  Error setting memory: Tx freq 0.000500 is out of supported range
> When I programmed in this frequency, I wanted to disable transmission
> so that I didn't accidentally transmit by mistake.  I found some
> instructions online that suggested setting the split such that the
> transmission frequency ends up in a band that the radio cannot transmit
> on, and this indeed works - should I try to transmit the radio beeps
> with an error (if beeps are enabled) and no transmission occurs.
> I have now successfully downloaded all my programmed channels into
> Chirp, including those with invalid splits, and I can upload them back
> to the device as well, with the invalid splits being left unchanged.
> However it won't let me assign names to the channels having these out
> of range splits because the above error comes up.
> Is there any way I can tell Chirp that this isn't an error, and the
> frequency is intentionally out of range to prevent accidental
> transmission, and to accept the name of the channel I am trying to set?
> Many thanks,
> Adam.
