To meet the new FCC certification restrictions, new ham models are internally locked to ham bands only. Not sure CHIRP can change that if it’s locked in the firmware.
Stay safe and healthy.

It seems that radio doesn't cover that frequency range:
It may look like the same radio but the frequency range is different.

Hello, thanks in advance for any help you may offer. As a member of my county search & rescue team, I have always used CHIRP to program my handhelds to be able to communicate on our county SAR channels, in the 155 range. With my old Wouxun KG-UV8D, there was an area in the CHIRP settings tab to expand the transmit range into these frequencies… I just upgraded to the KG-UV9D MATE. Although not listed in the official supported radios list for CHIRP, the radio does connect and is programmable as a KG-UV9D PLUS. Understandable as they are practically the same radio.
However, the same “transmit range” field that is available in CHIRP settings when I connect to my UV8D isn’t available on the 9D. Is this something that might become available in an update, or is there a workaround? TIA
