When downloading the data from the radio, location 1 always returns 0.0000 as the frequency and ERROR as the name.

I am able to repeat this every time. The memory location, in my example, should be "146.82" with "CARS 2M" as the Name

[leixen] Filter out-of-bounds audio processor setting, fixes #3675

After doing a clear all reset on the VV-898, the apro setting on
memory 1 is out of range (0xff), but the radio honors it as "off"
anyway. This fix prevents such a memory from throwing an exception on

The Audio Processor setting was set to a value that is out-of-range. I changed it to OFF in the attached image. But you can most likely fix it yourself by setting menu 2 (APRO) to some other value and then change it back to OFF.

Uploading your image seemed to do the trick.

For the record, I even tried doing a factory reset of the radio and that did not solve the problem.

Thanks for the quick response.
