The firmware message 1 is HNR5RV01
Message 2 is 1FB297
If I go to a ham repeater and hit the star to reverse frequency it will allow me to change to any channel and transmit and the R stays at the top of the screen.

If the reverse frequency function is turned on when on a channel you can transmit on, it will allow you to transmit on any channel in the radio. Is there a way to stop this from happening?  You cannot access the reverse frequency option unless on a channel you can transmit on.
