Description

I just received a new UV-5R in the mail and when programming with CHIRP it will accept a new batch of channels correctly but changes in the settings tab aren't carried forward. I haven't tested all of the options, but specifically the welcome message won't change (what downloads also isn't what the radio displays) and I cannot modify the upper and lower VHF/UHF limits. It's currently says 'FCC' on startup and is limited to 144-148/430-450.

Also, here is the log and img. The frequency range values were correct when downloading from the radio and uploading back, but the radio will not let me input anything outside of 144-148/430-450 no matter what the lower and upper limit settings are.

Update - I received a known-good img file from a fellow UV-5R owner and uploaded that to the device. I still can't manually tune outside of the restricted 144-148/430-450 ranges. However, he had frequencies programmed outside of that range (eg. 162.550) and in channel mode I can tune to them and receive transmissions successfully. So it seems like my manual frequency entry is locked out.

Try going into the radio menu > STEP > for value switch to 2.5K.
