I just bought a Baofeng UV-5R. I programmed in some channels and have been scanning these channels for activity.
I have had a situation come up on a few occasions where there is some activity on a channel that I don't want to hear. Usually, this is noise which I assume is from some source whose signal is weak from my position. As my radio scans, it picks up this noise every time through the channels.
The only way I know of to continue scanning without having to listen to the noise is to delete that channel from my channel list. But if I do that, I'd have to add the channel back in later, if I still want it in my radio's memory.
Is there a better way to resolve this problem than deleting the channel from my channel list?
