Hi guys. love the work you have done so far with this program. but with a recent radio purchased I am unable to program a few of the settings. any of the options in "Other Settings" and "Service Settings" are not transferring over to the radio. everything else i have programmed has been successful but not the 2 lots of settings. main things i am programming is the welcome message, the frequency limits and the squelch settings. attached is the file im using to program and the file i read from the radio just after i program it. let me know if you need more information. i am using latest software downloaded yesterday: CHIRP daily-20190112

The problem is that your radio doesn't support the service settings. It will only obtain and use the squelch threshold settings provided by the firmware. Baofeng also removed the ability of CHIRP making the "service" adjustments to the UV-B5 and UV-B6.
