Well, are you trying to use frequencies which the radio can't handle?
You might want to provide some details and a debug log as described in the Wiki: How To Report Issues.

Here is some complement for the feedback.
I wrote a first ask (Bug #7173). And these msg are a complement.

  1. What is the behavior you are seeing? = Setting's page is empty
  2. What is the behavior you were expecting? = Setting's page with values
  3. Can you reproduce the problem all the time? = yes
  4. What are the steps required to reproduce the problem? = Read the radio with bands limits out of standard values.
  5. Is this specific to a certain radio model (driver) or something that you can reproduce with another radio? = I have just one radio with this interface/Chirp (UV-6R Baofeng) Sorry for me english... Best 73. F5AAJ

Hi Michel, don't worry about your English - it isn't my native language either, but at least we can understand each other :-)
What I wanted to know is what frequency values you're trying. "Out of standard" could mean "out of ham bands" or "out of the range the radio supports". Also, it's really important that you provide a debug log as described in that WIKI article.

Finally, it will be better to add further feedback to the original ticket. That way all necessary information is centralized, and we don't have to look through multiple tickets. I'll close this ticket, sorry; but I've copied everything from here to there. Please leave further feedback at #7173. Thanks!
