Bob,

Great question.



Yes, once you have a working repeater configuration in VFO/Frequency Mode it is only a few steps to save it to a channel.



You can only program from the upper display so make sure your working repeater configuration is created in the upper display.



Let's say you are going to store current VFO configuration in memory channel 12 because you know channel 12 is empty. This is the process...



Save the configuration and RX frequency with this sequence of key presses



[MENU][2][7][MENU][0][1][2][MENU]



The HT will say 'receiving memory'



Wait for menu mode to time out or press [EXIT]



Turn on the 'reverse' feature to display the TX frequency by tapping the [*/SCAN] key. It is the second button down on the right of the keypad. You will hear a beep when it is enabled and a different beep when it is turned off.



Save the TX frequency with this sequence of key presses



[MENU][2][7][MENU][0][1][2][MENU]



The HT will say 'transmitting memory'



Wait for menu mode to time out or press [EXIT]



Turn off the 'reverse' feature to display the RX frequency by tapping the [*/SCAN] key.



You should now be able to switch to MR/Channel Mode, select channel 12 and talk on the repeater.



Good luck,

Jim KC9HI

Can't remember much at a time, very slow Braille reader, and read enlarged print a word at a time. When I set up options I need one at a time then stay in Frequency Mode, the repeater on which I am working responds. Is there a way to switch that successful set-up directly into a memory channel? I have so much to learn, and to think, I programmed complicated radios like the ICOM 746Pro with just a hand held magnifier.

Don't really need to do that. Just set up the radio for your local (popular)

repeater and give the guys a shout. ;-)
