Memory Recall
1. If operating in VFO mode, press the MR key.
2. Rotate the DIAL to the desired channel. OR, key in the memory channel number and press the MR key.
Memory Storage
1. In VFO mode, select the desired frequency. Set up any CTCSS or DCS tones, repeater offset, and power level as needed.
2. Press and hold F/W for 1 second.
3. Within 5 seconds of releasing F/W, rotate the DIAL to select the desired memory channel. Note that channels marked with a
* are free.
4. Press F/W to store the frequency into memory.
5. Note that you are still operating in VFO mode.
