Description

The latest daily build chirp-daily-20220823 would not install and told me that a file corrupt. I have tried downloading it several times with the same result. This is the first time I have encountered this issue with your excellent software. The only other thing that might be worth reporting is that the radio station preset does not save properly on the Boafeng UV-5R when uploaded to the radio. Thank you

What is the exact error message? How about a screen capture of the message?
What file is corrupt? Can you attach it to this issue?
I personally downloaded the Windows installer build on the 23rd (the morning that it was created) and updated 3 computers with it (Windows 7, Windows 10 and Windows 11).

Do you have an anti-virus program running? If yes, did it have a false positive and do something to corrupt the CHIRP windows installer file when it is downloaded?

Does the broadcast FM feature of your radio work? Due to a chip shortage and as a cost saving measure, the latest shipping UV-5R (and similar) radios do not include the broadcast FM chip. Without this chip, the radio is not capable of storing the frequency that CHIRP sends to it.

Just an FYI... hope it helps: I have downloaded and used the " chirp-daily-20220823.flatpak" for both my UV-5R and my ne BF-F8HP. I have done two uploads to each radio after some editing of my channels. Just wanted to pass along that I have not had any trouble with this build.
