Theory

439edo is inconsistent in the 5-odd-limit. In the 7-limit, the patent val 439 696 1019 1232], and the 439cd val 439 696 1020 1233] are about as viable.

The patent val tempers out 10976/10935, 15625/15552 and 703125/702464 in the 7-limit; 3025/3024, 4375/4356, 14700/14641, 59290/59049, 131072/130977, and 184877/184320 in the 11-limit.

The 439cd val tempers out 3136/3125, 2097152/2083725, and 4096000/4084101 in the 7-limit; 3136/3125, 15488/15435, 16384/16335, 19712/19683, 24057/24010, 43923/43750, 43923/43904, and 46656/46585 in the 11-limit.
