New version of Chirp supports FT65 , but doesn't support step 6.25 kHz.
TRX supports step 6.25 kHz , and manually or in original sogtware there is possibility to use 6.25 kHz step.

That is because CHIRP does supports only the FT65R which is the USA version that does not allow the value of 6,25kHz for the channel step:
FT-65R (USA
FT-65E (Europe)

Same thing for the FT-4X, indeed CHIRP does support only the FT-4XR which is the USA version that does not allow the value 6,25kHz for the channel step:
FT-4XR (USA)
FT-4XE (Europe)

It would be nice if even the european versions were fully supported someday.
I guess it is not only matter to remove the 6,25kHz control on the channel step, though.
We will see.

Code is complete for this. The problem is testing, as I only have a FT-4XR. (Actually, there is extra code to suppress 6.25 kHz in the US version.)

I can make code available to anyone who wishes to test this. Might better to wait a bit and test the modified bandwidth constraints at the same time.

Glad to read that someone is working on this, thanks!
I own both Yaesu FT-65E and FT-4XE hence I could do tests if I get the code.
The only limitation is that I am working on Windows so I need the executable because I have not python and its libraries (https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/DevelopersWin32Environment) and I would like not to have to install anything on the machine, as I am devote to use portable programs and I usually use standalone applications, which is also one of the reasons why I like CHIRP so much: it does not require installation.
I understand that what I can offer is not really help in the true sense of the word, but really I cannot do otherwise, sorry.
Now talking of the issues I do not know if the matter is tied to the fact I am using the european versions, but by working with the FT-4XE and FT-65E then many memories are missing while backing up on fresh factory default radios.
In my opinion would be also interesting compare things between USA and european versions.
