I'm trying to add names to my channel slots, but chirp only lets 6 characters to be saved in a slot. The UV-9R has room for 7 characters total.

I used the BF-A58 and the UV-82WP drivers to program the radio, both have the same result.

I have downloaded the original firmware for the UV-9R using the BF-A58 driver.

If there is anything else you need please let me know.
