After clearing channels (menu option #28) to free them up for use, I have found that they become completely unusable for future frequencies. Switching back from VFO to channel mode and trying to go to those channels merely skips them and goes to the next one available. Clearing them and attempting to set them to a frequency just makes the channels unusable. Am I not supposed to 'clear' the channels first or is this a bug that others are experiencing?
I had been following these instructions to 'clear' the channels, but it seems to have the effect of deleting the channels.
