What I call a problem, some people enjoy. I don’t disagree with any of you all, as you have reasons for wanting the feature enabled. However, I think new users need to watch this video or read the manual to know how to fix it, in case their lives depend on it.

Just over 10 minutes:

1. 00:00 – 00:37 – Intro
2. 00:37 – 2:07 – Specification Overview
3. 2:07 – 3:57 – USB Charging and Manual Discussion
4. 3:57 – 6:199 – CTCSS tones are enabled and How you can disable them.
5. 6:19 – 10:00 Front Panel Options / Where is the VHF Scan Mode?
6. 10:00 – End – Conclusion / Baofeng needs to get more user in put

I realize the problem with the UV5X was that you couldn’t change the CTCSS tone from the front panel, originally. The G11S Does allow this, but it seems illogical to setup a radio with CTCSS tones by default, requiring one to go into each channels menu to disable it or change it. To Baofeng’s defense, many GMRS operators enjoy privacy tones, and I understand that.
