I am missing the Baofeng BF-R5 Mini in the current release of Chirp.

It is possible to program the porto with settings for the BF888, but I am missing some settings for the bottom channel button.
I assume it should be possible to set this to be a "scan enable" button.
Also, the green light keeps blinking on channel 16.

When using the BF888 setup, there are quite some settings that are BF888 specific, and I am not sure what that does to the BF-R5 mini.

Also see "New Model #6257" about a Baofeng BR-R5 Mini, which was a typo.

Note: Using settings of the WLN KD-C1 or compatibles does not work.
The resemblance of the Baofeng only seems to be external.
