Yea, I just turn the channel to 16 and turn it on. It scans until it receives something and then stays on that channel. There's no way of knowing what channel it's on when this happens. I restart the scanning by turning the HT off and on again.

Its kinda strange I own a few Baofeng 888s and I could only get one to scan on channel 16 the other two didn't scan at all. There nice little radios for the price tho I'd recommend those to anybody wanting a cheap PMR radio.

More likely just using them illegally.
