Re Anytone AT-5888UV

Problem: I have the CTCSS set to filter and block unwanted signals for many of my channels. To make this work, I must set Menu #16 (Squelch Mode Setup “SGN SQL”) to “CT/DCS”. However, each time I power the radio off and on, or when I change channels, Menu #16 resets to “SQ”. The “SQ” setting does not filter for CTCSS.

Question: How do I lock the menu #16 setting to stay on “CT/DCS”?

CHIRP is my normal method. I then used the OEM program to pull the image from the radio; but have not yet found any setting in the OEM program which might do the trick.

I have 4 of these radios and they all behave the same.
