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.

if i recall correctly, in the duplex colum, select off. that stops tx.

This is only valid if you are only going to manual program your radio.
CHIRP checks to make sure that both the RX frequency and TX frequency
are within the capability of the radio.

You can't edit invalidly programmed channels. You have to "fix" the errors.

No. What you have to do is switch to the method that CHIRP uses to
inhibit TX on a memory channel of these radios. That would be to set
the Duplex field to "off". After doing this, you should then be able
to edit the Names as desired.
