When trying to insert or delete rows in Chirp with the attached Yaesu image file the program gets stuck moving the first row. The Shift window pops up and says "Moving 3 to 2" with a Close button. Hitting the Close button blanks the Memories window and It then locks up the program and requires a hard close and restart.

Error is;

Hi Roger,

Thanks for attaching your img file -- I was able to reproduce this and it may be a secondary symptom of something else -- There is an invalid setting somewhere in your radio that the Chirp driver vx8.py doesn't like. You can see for your self by going to the Settings tab and all you get is a blank window.

I'll add a few debug breakpoints to see if I can track down the invalid setting.

Actually those errors in _get_aprs_rx_settings() and other functions may be unrelated.

Can you perform this test:

Open a stock config and try to Insert a new line above or below. I think the feature is just broken and it's not your IMG file (but your IMG file does break the vx8.py driver)

Just like taking your car to the mechanic to demonstrate the malfunction and the car runs fine, I can't reproduce this problem in Chirp now. After I filed the bug, I exported to csv, modified it, and re-imported to have the new row where I wanted it. Perhaps that fixed the issue. At least the debug.log shows some proof of an issue. Thanks for your time looking into this. Feel free to set it as resolved for now. If it pops up again I'll reopen the issue.
