I'm running Version V0.91/Build 1. When I click and "clear" the numeric GPS fields on the bar above conventional Channel Entry grid, and then Paste a longitude, it is mistakenly pasted into the channel fields. It starts at frequency. Then if I paste again, it picks the next field.

Looks like it is picking up some GPS coordinates.

The reason I want to edit the GPS coordinates manually on a conventional channel import is that it isn't getting the right GPS coordinates.

Here is the report for Santa Clara County. I'm interested in Cupertino. It imports Cupertino's coordinates as the County Default of:
37.2332773 -121.7677276 35
...instead of what should be used for the city:
37.31476 -122.04910 3

More information. The program behaves as I describe in the first post, if I am editing a group I imported from rr.com.

If I create the group manually, It seems tl let me input lat/long. It doesn't let me enter the radius as a decimal number. I want to enter 3.1, and it disallows the '.' and any number past the decimal.

In the channel entry grid, there is a field for SQ code. It looks like I am able to enter the value from a drop down menu. There is a text entry box that allows me to enter '127.3', however, the SQ code field only has a '127'. It looks like it drops the '.3'.

Error in frequency entry field. Copy / paste a conventional frequency line, assume old fred is 453.1. So you copy/paste and want to modify 453.1 to 458.1. So you back up to the 3, backspace, type '8', and then 'tab' to move to next field. Frequency field is garbled.

I will look into the paste problem.
if the GPS data is incorrect you should notify rr.com. To confirm a change use Enter.
The SQ Code is dynamic and depends on SQ mode. So for 127.3 set SQ mode to CTCSS and then you will see 127.3 in the list.
