Description

When I try to copy row from one radio (Baofeng UV-B5) to another (Kenwood TH-F7) error dialog pops up saying:

Invalid value for this field
Radio refused 11

It does not say what field is problematic.

When I export the same line to csv I get this:

7,R7X,145.787500,-,0.600000,Tone,123.0,88.5,023,NN,FM,5.00,,,,,,

There is no number 11 in any of the fields, and all field values seems valid.

This error message should be more informative.

I found reason for error.

In source data, Tune Step is set to 5 KHz which does not match operating frequency 145.787500. TH-F7 obviously check this and refuses invalid entry.

Problem is Chirp Baofeng UV-B5 does not offer option to set Tune Step for individual row. It is always set to 5 KHz and cannot be edited. So that is another kind of bug.
