"My problem with version 251 is it will not hold VFOs and bounce back and forth even when radio is in the lock mode.    You may TX one minute on VFO A and next time TX on VFO B, wrong freq."

This is easy.  The "Dual Watch" function is doing that.  The radio switches automatically to whichever line, A or B, has radio traffic, or even just noise that breaks squelch.  It drive me nuts at first, too.  You need to turn this function off.

Set Menu 7 to Off, like this.

Press Menu, then 7.

Press Menu, then 0.

Press Menu (the radio says "Confirm")

Press Exit.

Or, if you want to do this with CHIRP:

Below where it says Memories on the left side, click Settings, Advanced Settings, uncheck Dual Watch, then upload back to the radio.
