When I pull up my FT 65 of Mac CHIRP, I get some weirdness.

All my offsets are set to 1666.6665, when I try to adjust anything I get this:

Error setting memory: Tuning step 6.25 not supported
Frequency 467.562500 is out of supported range
Tx freq 0.000000 is out of supported range
Name character `~' not supported

Obviously, based on the error code, I have to sheepishly admit to having acquired a modified version, prior to my knowledge of the finer points of radio operation, but it's too late to change that up, I have the radio I have. I was looking to reset everything and just get my local HAM stations plugged in, but I can't even do that.

Is the MARS/CAP mod what is causing the issue or is there something else?

[ft4] driver restructure (#7615)

While implementing two more radios of the Yaesu FT-4 family (the FT-25, see #7543, and the FT-4V, see #7387), I found that with some moderate reorganization, implementation of new radios will become easier. The proposed reorganization implements one more interstitial layer of inheritance to support the sub families of FT-4 (containing the FT-4X and FT-4V) and FT-65 (containing FT-65 and FT-25). Also, some variable assignments have been moved from the individual radio classes to the SCU-35 base class and to the interstitial classes named above.

This change also adds the infrastructure for adding European or Asian models, and as such prepare for addressing a number of currently open issues (6.25kHz tune step issues on EU models, frequency limitations; see #6619, #6651, #6677, #6761, #6869). It will also make it easier for a few additional fixes for issues which were found during my work on this driver (#7601, #7603, #7605). I will submit these fixes in additional patches.

[ft4] Open allowed frequencies to radio supported receive ranges. Fixes #6651
The FT-4 driver restricted allowed frequencies to what the radios allowed for transmit. This patch opens allowed ranges to what the radios offer for receiving. Also mentioned in #6869.

Did a full reset of the radio, no change. Still getting error messages.

Did the latest versions resolve your problem? I'm interested to hear about it, I'm currently working on the related model FT-25. Thanks!
