Hrmmm... It's possible I made an edit with the Kenwood program, but with more Baofengs in the house I will probably use Chirp mostly. Is that a setting per radio type? (Can I request the "-" Symbol? :-D

The driver for the D72 uses the "chirp_common.CHARSET_ALPHANUMERIC" which is:

"ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890"

So it would not support the "-" character. It probably never has.
