I recently purchased the Baofeng UV-5RA. I am trying to set up dual watch mode so that I can receive one frequency, and be able to transmit on another frequency when I key the radio.

I enabled TDR and set TDR-AB to B. When I am on frequency A and key the radio, it still transmits on A not B. I followed the instructions here and apparently it is a bug?

Has anyone else had this problem before?

EDIT: I think this has something to do with the upgraded firmware? Can someone confirm this.

It is due firmware. Apparently Baofeng is getting rid of that menu option.
