Description

When I change:

chirp/drivers/uv5r.py

# UV5R_CHARSET = chirp_common.CHARSET_UPPER_NUMERIC + \
UV5R_CHARSET = chirp_common.CHARSET_ALPHANUMERIC + \
    "!@#$%^&*()+-=[]:\";'<>?,./" 

I see that the radio can display lowercase in the memory descriptions.

I have not looked into this deeply. Is there a limitation that is known, that I should be aware of? Maybe a minimum firmware version?

I would like to implement this.

I also seem to recall that the generic csv importer uppercases everything, but I'll need to look at that further; I looked a while ago and might be mistaken.

History

That is the way it was 5 years ago when support was first added to CHIRP. The welcome message allowed UPPER/lower case characters so it was supported that way.

Thanks for the response, Jim.

I thought the welcome screen was a bug. I'll stop looking into that.

Now I look at this, the first line of code, which I probably should have quoted as such, is actually a comment that's been interpreted as a numberer list. I'll try to edit it.

Would you rather I only applied this to the firmware version I am running? Or would you prefer to deal with this yourself?

Can not quickly see how to edit the initial bug report. Code should read:

 # UV5R_CHARSET = chirp_common.CHARSET_UPPER_NUMERIC + \
 UV5R_CHARSET = chirp_common.CHARSET_ALPHANUMERIC + \
     "!@#$%^&*()+-=[]:\";'<>?,./"
