This is more of a feature request with low priority than it is a "bug". I should have selected such.

I am assuming that instead of "DTMF tags" you meant "alpha tags", right? I have confirmed that the channel names can be increased from 6 characters to 7 characters so I will create a patch to support this. If this isn't what you meant, then explain what you meaning by "DTMF tags".

Wow, thanks Jim!

Yeah, I was just going through a number of HT's and found a couple small things like this. I noticed that I put seven characters into the DTMF fields, even though it only accepts six in chirp. I forget the method I used.

Have a good one!

(Yeah, I meant alphanumerical tags. It was very late last night, this morning, when I posted and wasn't clear myself.)
