UV-5R Upload Truncates Name (with fix)
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.
265c265,267 < break --- > mem.name += " " > continue > #break
I have tested this fix with my UV-5R and it works very well.
