PROGRAMMING & SAVING THE FM RADIO (BROADCAST) CHANNELS:

The Wouxun manual totally fails in explaining how to save FM radio stations into memory. First off there are 2 banks to save FM radio stations in. Wouxun calls them "Team 1" and "Team 2" (dont ask me why). Each bank or "team" can save 9 stations. You can access the "teams" by pressing the "#" key when in FM listening mode. Also, you CANNOT use the programming software to save FM stations.

Ok, now on to HOW to actually save the stations:
1: Put the radio into FM listening mode by pressing the button below the PTT key.
2: Use the channel select knob to tune to the station that you want, for example: 95.5
3: Press the "#" key, the display will say "Team 1" or "Team 2", keep pressing the # key until the Team (memory bank) you want is shown on the display.
4: Press the "menu" key, the display will say "SAVE?", now press the number key where you want to save this station (only buttons 1 thru 9, "0" wont work).

You are done... At this point you can change the channel with the select knob, and verify you have saved the station by pressing the key that you saved it to earlier, it should go back to that station.

A side note here: These Wouxun radios can do dual monitor, that is listen to 2 channels (VHF or UHF), HOWEVER it is not a true dual recieve. What this means is that if you are listening to 2 channels say, "home" on Band A and "work" on Band B, if "home" transmits, the radio will hear it and STOP listening to the other band until the traffic stops. The same applies the other way around. In other words, it doesnt multi-task, it concentrates on one conversation at a time...

When listening to FM Broadcast channels, the same thing applies. Just keep in mind that while listening to FM Broadcast, it takes the place of your 2nd Band. So, say you are listening to "work" on Band B as your selected band, when you press the FM button, it will listen to the FM Station INSTEAD of Band A. Its either/or, not both. 2-way radio traffic will override FM listening.

So, you can listen to:
"A" + "B"
UHF + UHF
VHF + UHF
UHF + VHF
VHF + VHF
UHF + FM
FM + UHF
VHF + FM
FM + VHF
