Ahhh... Add the 'scan [on]' function during programming but be warned, it takes a full 20 seconds to cycle only 70 channels (plenty of time to actually miss transmissions) But on a more positive note : I'd forgotten how much fun the UV5R is to use! I'd long since discarded it in favour of more versatile handhelds. However on resurrecting the battery, I was delighted to rediscover how easy it was to use and how good it felt in the hand.
