Yes,I believe that is what Chris did when he programmed the radios. he told me he was using your 2017 codeplug.
Only problem was all FM repeaters receive CTCSS was set to an invalid value of 60Hz. So none would receive even though the front panel showed RCTCSS as off. Setting a valid value then returning to 'off' got each one working again.
There are 3000 channels, 250 zones, 250 scan lists, 250 group lists 10000 contacts.
64 * 2 channels per zone.
32 contacts per group list
31 channels per scan list.
I suspect they will increase the size of the contact list the same as the handheld given time, although I am not bothered by that, I don't need loads of contacts.
There are some bugs with the CPS. Not sure if they are the same for the 2017.
Export and re-import channels from .CSV causes all zones to loose everything except 16 channels in bank A. (Really annoying otherwise its a great way of adding channels.) I may have to write something to save the zones and then restore them, it would be easy enough to do.
Programming the VFOs causes channels above 1028 to disappear.
There are also some strange bugs with the firmware.
Seems slow to receive DMR audio. Often loosing the first few words. Sometimes audio never comes through although screen shows ID and TG.
Cant access menu when receiving.
Loud audio click at the end of each received over. (sounds like the audio amp power being turned off. )
Hopefully they will sort this out, especially the lost audio.
I will do a better write-up when I have some more time.
I will try to give you a call on it when I next hear you.
