Hi, I have Baofeng GMRS-9R and as per my understanding I have to select the UV-9G (I also own the UV-9G and have same issue). In the DIY Channels I have tried to frequency 443.5000 and some others and I get a warning: Duplex must be "off" for this frequency. I am not sure how I can program some repeaters that I want to use if I cant enter the offset. Any help would be appreciated and or feedback, maybe I should purchase another radio as this might not support this. Thank you in advanced for any help and or guidance towards my issue.

The GMRS-9R is NOT locked out of transmitting on ham frequencies - only the available programming software enforces it. In developer mode I was able to tweak the UV-9G img file and upload it to the radio and it transmits just fine on 2M and 70 cm. Huge PITA though - sure would be nice if the UV-9G CHIRP whatever didn't try to lock us out of doing that :'-( .
