In addition to that the UV2D (and UV3D, UVD1P and some other models) are
not capable of being programmed for 2.5 kHz steps/7.5 kHz spaced
channels that are used on VHF by many Part 90 licensee and they may not
even be narrowband compliant (I don't remember).

Wouxun software and KG-UV Commander software allows you to (illegally)
expand the transmit frequency range. At least on radios that were sold
about 10 years ago. I don't know if Wouxun changed the firmware since
then and I don't remember if CHIRP has that capability
