Since the factory manual is simple and basic, is it possible to use the Baofeng UV-5RE to do these things?
Listen to FM radio, while scanning 2m and 70cm bands in the background (as in hiking)
Set the scan low and high limit, via keypad and/or PC software, so that scanning only takes place within ham bands (instead full transceiver freq range).
Scan 2m and 70cm 'simultaneously'. Does the radio have multiple (FM/UHF/VHF) receivers inside, or can it jump quickly between frequencies and appear to be 'simultaneously' receiving multiple bands?
What can the PC software do that cannot be done with keypad programming? According to some online posts, "NAME" and "AMI" functions are available. Are there others?
