The Baofeng UV-82 supports a large character set (modified Shift-JIS), but CHIRP doesn't even allow lowercase alphas.

An easy quick fix is to use chirp_common.CHARSET_ASCII for the UV-82, perhaps excluding \ and ~ (which show up as ¥ and →).

Full support involves transcoding between Unicode and the modified Shift-JIS.

Observed differences from Shift-JIS:
0x7e → (‾)
0x7f ← (DEL)

[uv5r] UV-82 use ASCII charset Partially fixes #5227

The UV-82 supports all of ASCII (with two replacements).

I imagine other Baofeng radios do also, so this provides an easy means to
specify supported characters for different models.
