CHIRP daily-20171120 is not working with the V1.08 radio. Chirp is able to comunicate, but the filled in channels are all wired in the radio. Read out of the radio get a standard with no changes. It does not matter what was filled in before.

I've been struggling with my VV-898 v1.08 all morning, was finally able to get CHIRP to work by doing the following:

1. perform factory reset by holding "M" button for two seconds immediately after power on and choosing reset all
2. manually save and name one or two frequencies via the front panel buttons and menus
3. download from issue #4069, and "enable developer functions" within CHIRP
4. download information from radio
5. upload information to radio

Perhaps somehow the radio doesn't accept CHIRP uploads properly until it has been programmed manually at least once? Seems to work for me now.
