Description

I have a RUGGED RH5R-V2 radio, trying to add frequency 462.6875 to the frequency list via CHIRP and I get this error:

Error setting memory: Tuning step 12.50 not supported
Frequency requires 12.50kHz step

Forgot to say I am running the windows version of chirp, and attached is a .img file from the radio.

What are the allowable steps for this radio?

Actually late lastnight I fixed the problem and forgot to post. I went back to chirp 20191509 (9-15-2019) release and it programmed the radio just fine!

So all I can think of is a bug in the newer chirp release?

Going back to an older version of CHIRP did not fix the problem, it just worked around it.

The old version of CHIRP works because it had a bug. That but was corrected so now unless the radio's STEP list is specified in the driver (and it isn't), the radio only gets a common, but limited, list of STEPs.

So if you would please provide the list of valid steps for this radio, I will add them to the driver.

The users manual I found on online shows selectable 12.5/25 kHz step size.
https://www.manualslib.com/download/1318087/Rugged-Radios-Rh5r-V2.html
However, when I try to program a 12.5kHz frequency (example 150.0125 MHz), CHIRP returns an "Error setting memory: Frequency requires 12.50kHz step" error message.

The 12.5/25 KHz is the bandwidth selections (narrow and wide), not the steps.

I took a look at the manual and it does not provide the steps and it appears that there isn't a STEP menu to get the values from. I think what I can do is to find out what the CHIRP common steps are (which the driver is getting now) and add the 6.25 KHz and 12.50 KHz steps and that should take care of it.

Is the "bandwidth selections (narrow and wide)" that you described represented in CHIRP's "Mode" column? If so, how do the Rugged Radio RH5R-V2 12.5kHz & 25kHz align to the 2.5kHz, 5kHz, & 100kHz VFM, FM, & WFM "Mode" options defined on the wiki?
https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/MemoryEditorColumns#Mode

Mode
This controls the transmit and receive mode of the channel. The following lists the common values and their meanings:
FM: "Wide" FM for two-way communications (i.e. 5 kHz deviation)
NFM: "Narrow" FM for two-way communications (i.e. 2.5 kHz deviation)
WFM: "Wide" FM for broadcast communications (i.e. ~100 kHz deviation)
AM: "Narrow" AM for two-way communications (i.e. aircraft band in the US)
DV: Icom's digital D-STAR mode
