• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

I have a Baofeng UV82L and I use CHIRP to program the memory channels. My issue is when scanning A channels if I stop on a memory preset channel the B channel does not correspond. I am operating on repeaters so I have A set to RX and B to TX. So I need to select the correct B channel to match A. When I transmit on B it stays on that channel and I have to hit the exit A/B button to switch back to channel A to listen. Is there a way to set it to monitor A all the time so when I transmit on B it automatically switches back to A for listening purposes? And to automatically go to the corresponding memory channel on B to match A Channel 5 on A and Channel 5 on B so I don't have to manually set the correct TX on B to match A. Clear as mud?

First, the top [A] and bottom lines are independent. They cannot be linked or automatically synchronized.

It seems strange that you would set [A] to a channel programmed with the RX frequency and to a channel programmed with the TX frequency. That wastes a memory but using 2. Or am I missing something?

I assume that you are programming the memories manually using the keypad. What you should do is program a single channel to RX on the repeater's output frequency and TX on the repeater's input frequency. Then when you stop scanning on [A], you transmit on [A] and then resume scanning on [A]. It won't matter what is selected on .

Here's a guide to show you how: Baofeng Pofung UV5R Programming Flow Chart UV-5R
