Description

In chirp-daily-20120504, uploading from a UV-5R truncates names if the name contains "\xFF".

Unfortunately, the Baofeng programming software will insert a "\xFF" character into the name if it doesn't like the original character (for example, "."). On the display, this will be shown as a space.

The fix is quite straight forward. In the loop for copying the name starting at line 263 in uv5r.py, replace the "break" with inserting a space and continuing the loop.

<                 break
---
>                 mem.name += " "
>                 continue
>                 #break

I have tested this fix with my UV-5R and it works very well.
