In Chirp, the memory tab is common for all radios. The settings tab is
specific to each model of radio. (This is why you can't
copy/paste/import/export settings.) For the most part, we use the same
name for each of the settings as the manufacturer uses in their
documentation. The manual for your radio should describe these
features with the same terminology. So, look through your manual to
find a description of the Battery Saver feature.
