I have a pair of BF-888S HH and can't seem to get them to scan. They've been programmed in CHIRP with channel 16 blank but when I turn the radios to 16 all I hear is a tone. Suggestions?

IIRC, there is a checkbox in chirp to enable scanning. Then, as you wrote, just turn to CH16. Works here...

Double checked the programming in Chirp and Scan was checked. Still no joy with scanning.

Finally got this resolved. It took a later version of BF-480 than the one I was using.
