Description

when programming the memories and setting up banks and bank names, the memory information is put in memories correctly, the bank names seem to be correct if you look at them in the bank naming menu in setup on the radio but when using the band sw on the radio when in mr mode there are no banks. taking a memory location and storing in a known labelled bank(it does not come up as bank name, just as number after stored even though it comes up with labelled name when storing) seems to allow this bank to be accessed but things are not quite right considering it seems like the radio doesnt know these banks exist or are named, even when the names appear in the name menu in setup.
at moment cant really use the banks at all, now have to sift through 300 memory entries to find the one I need.

Sorry, your writing style is a little hard to understand. Are you saying that Chirp is adding channels to banks, but never enabling the bank?

yes that appears to be the case

  • Chirp Version changed from 0.2.3 to 0.3.0

I suspect this is a failure to set the "current_bank" bit. Example in the VX5 driver: source:chirp/vx5.py
