	I show:
 Display Mode (A) Name
 Display Mode (B) Name

	So here's what happens:

MR shows V16 (Channel name in but VFO shows 146.460 in my
worksheet. Shown on CHIRP it is 145.200 which is what I want.

	I save the file with 145.200 V16 on the worksheet, then I
do Radio > Upload I still get the right channel name, but the
wromng Freq on my radio.

	Do I have to change Display Mode (A) Name to Frequency?

Simply put Chanel Name can be changed, but not the Freq.

No matter what I do, I can't change the freq.
