I would think the radio offers the facility and Chirp supports it
so that you can mark channels to not be transmitted on.  This lets
you add frequencies for (in my area, ambulance svc, a couple police
depts, FRS, GMRS, NOAA, etc) that I might want to monitor but wouldn't
want to inadvertently key-up on.
