First of all you need to get a programming cable! DL VIP. Get a list of repeaters in your area with pl codes.

They are great little radios,,,,, I went on Youtube and found a guy who has several videos about using the cable and using CHIRP free software for programming, I am waiting on my cable in the mail as I type this.... haven't seen the VIP software in action but youtube really helped me understand the programming

Hello Hooper818

You cannot unlock empty channels. The channels will show up as you program them. More than likely only channels 000 and 127 have something programmed in them. Get a cable and CHIRP and enjoy them. I have two and really enjoy them. Also, if you go to Baofeng UV-5R, UV-B5, UV-82, GT3, Information Site, Two-Way, Ham Radio, uv5r plus - BaoFeng, Two-Way, Radios, Outdoor, hunting, camping, GMRS, FRS, Ham Radio, Mobile Transceiver, Walkie-Talkie, Radio Accessories, Shortwave Radio and go into the UV5R section you'll learn everything you need to know about the UV5R.
