FTM-7250 BUG - AM MODE
A few days ago a Bug was corrected that did not allow the entry of the full range of the RX of this radio.
However, after the correction it appears that the AM mode option was not added in the configuration sheet.
Especially for the air band segment.

The bug is that the "Mode" field only allows choices "FM" and "NFM", but also needs to allow "AM" to support receive-only channels such as the airband. Attached is an image file I downloaded from an FTM-7250DR which has 3 channels (197,198,199) that were manually saved on the radio and show as AM on the radio screen, but show "FM" in Chirp. Hopefully it saved the actual radio value so you can see what it's supposed to be.

Thanks in advance!
I encourage you and congratulations for the great work that you do!

the patch that was submitted unfortunately only dealt with the dropdown box presentation. I volunteered to work on the code to carry that change through. I had some success in identifying candidate memory locations and settings but things weren't clear enough to be sure. I don't have this radio, so working without hands on became too difficult to cycle through the steps quickly and reliably. As far as I understand, the driver that was submitted was only put forward with a very minimal amount of functionality, basically to get a set of FM frequencies up to the radio. At the moment, I am not actively working on this issue and I'm not aware of anyone else who is working on it.
