Do the principles stated here still stand? It looks like currently the
first 2 bits of 0xAE are used, so I can take up to 6 bits from bit 3
upwards to bit 8, and then any bytes from 0xAD downwards all the way to

I'm looking to store the last used radio frequency, so need to store a
value in the range 8000 to 11000, which can scale to 0-3000, and currently
in increments of 5 (frequency increases by 0.05 Mhz), so could be scaled
to 0-600, so long as we are settled on these, but these could still be up
in the air, pending discussions on here. I can start off taking 2 bytes,
giving plenty of range, and scale these later to use less space in the
config block.

Maybe a bit more info in settings.c wouldn't go amiss, to explain the
usage and allocation rules?
