    Not being totally familiar with Baofeng (I have one but don't use it) I took a shot in the dark and missed. Now I'm going to take another shot and see if might help.

    With the Baofengs, the repeater offset has to be hand entered (the radio doesn't do it for you, like Kenwood, Yaesu or iCom radios do.) The offset for the 70cm UHF ham band is different than the...

    I've never placed too much faith in the battery indicators on mobile or HT radios. They are notoriously inaccurate. I usually recharge my batteries when they quit operating the radio.

    When you say "bump the dial" do you mean turning the knob to get past the programmed repeater and get the scan started again? I do this too, but I've never had mine lock up on me like that.

    I'm glad you found a work-around, but it shouldn't be working that way. Have you tried to program memory channels into the various banks by hand? You might try that and see if it mske a difference...

    I think you're asking too much of a radio that was designed for kids. I've looked at pictures and I can't tell where you'd plug in a cable or there's even one available for the radio. I suspect...

    I'm taking a wild guess here, but these look like FRS radios. You don't program them. They are channelized and all that is done at the factory.
