Yaesu VX170 unable to edit memory before radio is loaded
Able to download and upload but memory 1 does not load. When I try to edit and add memory 1, I receive an error "unable to edit memory before radio is loaded".
Okay, I'm guessing maybe it is "EPCS" mode, based on the manual. Chirp can't really support that properly without a lot of work, but mapping it to "TSQL" mode makes sense I think. Here's an updated module for you to test. See LoadingTestModules for details.
- Status changed from New to Feedback
- Assignee set to Dan Smith
- Target version set to chirp-py3
In case it wasn't clear, I was hoping for an acknowledgement of the tone mode and testing of the module, if possible. I'm holding up merging this into a release in hopes we can get that ack :)

I can try for the VX-170. If i don't get to it by tomorrow night, I'll be out of town and won't be able to get to this until 4/8.
I also have a Yaesu FT2D with this same channel configured in slot 1 which works just fine

Yeah, it's definitely something with the VX-170. It has DTCS as tone mode 4, your image has tone mode 5 in that slot. So either the driver is wrong about mode 4, or mode 5 is "dtcs plus something else" or something.
I'll hold off until you can confirm, thanks!
...Okay, does that mean TSQL mode doesn't work? It would be very strange to have two values in memory to indicate TSQL mode... Is there another TSQL-like mode in the radio? Perhaps it actually selected TSQL-R (Yaesu calls this
REV-TN mode). Or perhaps when you select TSQL in chirp, you get
REV-TN on the radio?
