Baofeng setting for F.R.N.

Baofeng menu setting for The Free Radio Network.

NOTES

Set your channel –  with CTCSS of 131.8 the tone numbers are different on the Baofeng this is usually tone 20 but on the Baofeng it is tone 21

Everything is tricky to program on the Baofeng by hand, but once you know where everything is it gets easier, it’s a lot easier with the software.

You need to put the frequency into a memory slot, but if there is something in the memory slot you have to delete it first before you can change it
