Description

Hi, I have a Boafeng GT3 TP Mark III and I am trying to set the paragliding frequency used in the UK 118.675, but cannot do it. I use the driver BF-F8HP and when trying to configure 118.675 I get teh message; Error setting mmemory:Frequency 118.675000 is out of supported range.

Is the GT 3TP supported with latest version of CHIP? I have CHIRP daily-20191029

Any help is welcome.

Yes the GT-3TP is supported. See the models under Baofeng BF-F8HP in the Supported Radio Models list on the CHIRP home page.

The frequency you are trying to use is not within the radio's factory band limits. CHIRP supports the step compatible frequencies within the factory band limits...

VHF: 130.0000-179.9975 MHz
UHF: 400.0000-520.9975 MHz

CHIRP is working as expected.

Also note that most air band frequencies use amplitude modulation (AM). This radio is frequency modulation (FM) only.
