Yes, I can see the individual memories in Chirp, once I get them there 
(See problem #1 for why I say "once I get them there").  It is on the 
radio that I can't see them.

On the radio, if I mask (show) the memories, they are there.  However, 
masking 100+ memories is not going to be fun.  The other problem is that 
even after I mask the memories, they revert back to unmasked (hidden) if 
I sync again via Chirp.

Thanks for the suggestion.
