When using the Baofeng UV-82 PLUS model, I am unable to input lower case letters into the Alpha Tags when choosing the UV-82HP model. It does seem that all other functions work correctly. I can however select the UV-82 model which will allow me to save the Alpha Tags in UPPER/lower case letters. The problem when selecting the UV-82 model is that I am unable to select from the 3 available power levels: High/Medium/Low. (68.1 kB) Jim Unroe, 06/21/2022 12:22 am

Yep. It somehow got overlooked. Try the attached test driver module to see if that takes care if it for you. Here is how you use it...

1. Save the attached test driver module file ( file to a convenient location

Note: Do not right-click the link to download. Left-click and then click the "download" link on the page that loaded.

2. Load CHIRP
3. Enable "Enable Developer Functions" in the "Help" menu
4. Click "Load Module" in the "File" menu
5. Locate and load the file that was saved in step 1

The CHIRP background should now be red to indicate that CHIRP is running with an externally loaded driver module. Test editing "alpha tags" with UPPER/lower case names.

Note: An externally loaded driver module does not permanently change your CHIRP installation in any way. If you restart CHIRP, you will have to load the test driver module before you can edit lower case text.

The test driver module does fix the issue. Thank you.
