Yaesu FT1DE name field size overrun

Yaesu FT1Dx has memory locations that may contain strings. Lengths that are too long (or umlauts in the name) make the function of the transmitter unpredictable.
in my case: "send beacon" at APRS, activated the transmitter, but did not send any data and keyed it continuously (the transmitter could only be reset by removing the battery)
by comparison with a recorded backup, this was clearly caused by the storage locations.

sorry for writing in german ... :(

YEASU TF1Dx it is possible to name BANK an MEMORY with strings. if length of string exceeds fieldsize (maybe also the usage of a german umlaut) makes function an behaviour of the YAESU device unpredictable.
in my case: function: "send APRS beacon" activates the transmitter but doesn't send any data and stays uninterruptable sending a carrier. reset is available only by removing the battery

by comparing configuration with a working backup it was the naming that causes the issue.
