The scan settings is missing the option to turn off the priority channel. The software that came with the radio allows priority to be turned off however in chirp that option does not exist.

[th_uv8000] Allow scan priority channel 0 (OFF). Issue #8339


Updated by Daniel Gutzwiller 5 months ago

I was able to find a workaround for this issue. Selecting an unused memory for the priority channel makes the radio behave as if Priority is turned off.

You could help us by attaching two radio images downloaded from your radio using Chirp, one with the priority channel turned off, and one with the priority channel turned on. Thanks!
