Is there a way to not include some channels (weather, police) in the scan chain?

I would like to opt out certain channels like talk radio, weather, marine from the scan chain because they interfere with the way I use scan just to find conversations. This might have been adressed before but I did not find it in search. I use Baofengs uv5r, uv9rplus and bf-888.

This is for channel scan, I forgot to mention...

In my baofeng it is the "skip" field. "S" means to skip this channel in scan mode.

This isn't a Chirp bug, nor a Feature or New Model request.
This is a question best asked on the mailing list.
You might get (much) quicker feedback there.
