xbee xctu v6.1.0 cannot set field ATMY / ATDL / ATDH / etc to zero
The XCTU software is a little buggy, if you cannot get rid of the DH (set it to zero) after accidentally setting it to something nonzero, go into the console tab, hit connect Add a packet -- "+++" . Send selected packet -- you should get an "OK" in response...
