Yaesu FT-8900R Settings Tab Missing & Bands Tab Issues
Hello, I'm on a Mac v10.14, using the latest CHIRP daily, 20181009. When I downloaded an image of my FT-8900R, it's missing the Settings tab that I've grown accustomed to on CHIRP images for my FT-60R & FT-817ND. The tab is also missing if I download someone else's 8900R image and load it into CHIRP.
Also, there is a Bands tab in CHIRP for 8900R images with 10 Bank columns, all rows blank -- this radio doesn't have bands in the traditional sense, it's got a pair of Home presets and 6 "Hyper Channels".
Do both of these issues come down to the software implementation needing some work or is this a reality of cloning with the 8900R?
In any case I'm still able to manage my presets without a problem, and can adjust any settings/"special" memories from the radio itself if I ever need to, so these issues are by no means a huge problem for me. Love CHIRP, thanks for all your work!

Chirp doesn't currently support FT-8900's settings, hyper memories etc. I just created a item #6357 to indicate, that I have started studying FT-8900's memory map and target is to get support for those. So far, I have managed to map basic structure for hyper memories etc, but some details are still under study.
Please keep in touch - my target is to get something out after 1-2 months.
