Question about Radio Communications
You have to be in "VFO" mode. Your best bet on that extremely difficult to use radio, is to get "chirp" and the proper cable and program it via a computer. If you search on-line for "baofeng programming" you may find an alternate set of instructions. Your absolute best bet: throw that PoS away and get a Yaesu FT-60.

Testimonial: "first of all your wrong. second, it's NOT a pos. i have 4 of them and they all work great. it's just the last 2 i bought were uv-5ra and not uv-5r. i got the problem solved using the baofeng programming software. the chirp software, in my opinion, is a pos. it is a very easy radio to use. i have looked into other radios, and for the money, and now for the radio's quality, i would recommend the baofeng to anyone."
