Baofeng UV-9G reception on non-GMRS frequencies



It may be in my head, but I just got one of the new Baofeng UV-9g radios and I have noticed that it has trouble picking up some of the non-GMRS frequencies like the NOAA stations and regular FM radio. I know that those are not the intended frequencies for the radio and maybe it is “tuned” differently, but an older UV-5Rv2+ I have seems to pick those up much better using the same antenna on both radios. It is nice to finally have a certified radio for GMRS, but I just want to make sure that there might not be something wrong with the new radio.  Let me know if this makes sense. It seems to operate fine on all the GMRS frequencies, which is the intended purpose.
