the repeater above has an offset of 0.24. If I type that offset into CHIRP, it initially seems to take the offset. However, it does not take that offset. When I save the programming file (IMG), and then re-open the file, the offset is changed to 0.2. If I try to program the radio, CHIRP changes the offset to 0.2. If I try to import a CSV file with the correct 0.24 offset, that is changed to 0.2. CHIRP will not take the 0.24 offset required for this repeater.

I was able to get the repeater programmed using "split"

I still think this is a bug, as CHIRP allows to enter an offset value that you can not save or program to the radio.

Have you tried with a recent version since you submitted this? I'm asking because there might have been some changes in the driver since you tried last.
