Your UV-5R manual sucks, I know, as I tried using it too. The alternate manuals are better.
Trying to do a basic function like skipping a channel so it doesn’t blare at you?
Use the CHIRP software to program your UV-5R, then choose the “SKIP” drop down box to skip the channel.
I wanted to include the local NOAA weather station, but when scanning it will stop the scan since the station is in broadcast mode.
