Description

Using CHIRP daily-20150513 pre-built application with OS-X 10.10.3, Prolific corp driver.
Hardware is Jetstream JT270M with Jetstream OEM USB programming cable.

CHIRP daily-20150513 can download image from radio; spreadsheet created
shows "Jetstream JT270M: (Untitled) in the tab at top. I can make entries for
channels and successfully upload to radio; the radio programs successfully.

Problems occur when saving and reloading files to disk.

When I /File/Save the session to a .Chirp file, no abnormal indications appear.

When I /File/Load that saved .Chirp file, the spreadsheet has lost all the saved
information, AND the title information in tab shows "Wouxun KG-816: + my_file_name".

Viewing the reloaded file the "Memories" tab selector displays as many rows as
requested by the memory range controls, but all saved information is missing,
first seven rows frequency 0.000 with name having no entry. Remaining rows
show frequency 0.000 with name "ERROR".

Viewing the reloaded file the "Settings" tab selector displays completely blank white area.

[KG-816] File SAVE/RELOAD difficulties Jetstream JT270

The "match_model" for the Wouxun KG-816 can mistakenly
match some Jetstream JT270 and Leixen VV-898 image files.

Please ignore my incorrect platform=windows designator.
This was observed using Apple OS X 10.10.3

I submitted a patch to fix this. It should be included in next daily build.

You might note that after examining your image file, it appears to be from a Leixen VV-898 instead of a JET JT270M. Only in this case the Welcome message is set to JT270M. So if you ever change the Welcome message of your radio, your images will be detected as Leixen VV-898.

Jim - thank you for so rapidly responding to my earlier request.

I just tried daily build "CHIRP daily-20150530" on my Jetstream JT270M using my Mac OSX system.

The symptoms I observe are apparently unchanged: I can still download from radio and the spreadsheet shows all the information from the radio. When I save that downloaded information to a disk file, the save process appears normal.

When I reload the saved file, the resulting spreadsheet is still missing all information.

I am attaching a new saved IMG file generated by downloading and saving using "CHIRP daily-20150530".

Jerome,

I submitted the patch on 30/May/2015, after the CHIRP daily-20150530 build was released. Mine patches haven't been released (or accepted) yet.

If you want an easy and temporary fix, then just remove the wouxun.py file from your computer.
