Hi David,

While this list service is about Chirp and not a radio user support forum, 
and since I'm not much use for the proper questions,  I can tell you that 
if all you want to do is listen,  you can ignore all these settings. They 
should be off.

Learning about the radio operational features is available from a variety 
of sources though many of the user manuals don't as good a job of 
explaining as we'd like.

Best wishes,
