Model affected:Yaesu FT-70DR


I'm using the current daily (20180314) on ubuntu-16.04 with a new Yaesu FT-70DR.

I downloaded from my FT-70DR (configured without chirp). Added some national calling frequencies, repeaters, GMRS stations, and NOAA. Then I uploaded to the radio again.

Memory 1 in chirp is labeled "2MCAL" for the 2m calling frequency (146.520). On the radio it shows "2MCAL". All memories higher than 1 show the frequency instead of the name, which isn't how the radio usually works.

I can upload my memory save image if that's helpful.

Thanks for your feedback. I have just submitted a patch to
_mem.display_tag = 1 # Always Display Memory Name (For the moment..)
This is pending setting a default for new memory entries to be displayed as names, unless set in memory.extras properties.
