When programming my D72A I get channels (usually 70cm) that won't transmit. I see many "dirty block" messages and an exception (see attached).

Hi Eric,
Can you please test against latest daily and attach a debug.log from that version if it is still not working.

"dirty blocks" is not an error message. Chirp is keeping track of which memories you edit. It marks these as "dirty". When you upload back to the radio, it only write those channels to save time.

Please read how to report issues and use the steps there to tell us what's actually wrong. As Jens requested, test with the latest daily build. Please also upload your .img file if using a clone mode driver.

By the way, you won't have these problems with the TH-D72 live mode driver. It operates in a different way that allows the radio to reject changes it doesn't like.
