Since I never see myself using 128 or however many memories these radio have, if I want different power or tone settings, 

I just put the same frequency in multiple memories, with different settings.

ch 6 - 146.52 high power
ch 7 - 146.52 low power
ch 8 - 146.52 high power - tone on.

Keep the same sequence for each frequency.

Lot easier to change channels than remembering menu buttons.

Same with scanning. If there is a channel that’s important, put it in the list every six or eight slots.

The priority function on my UV2501 makes a “click” in the speaker, every time it is checking the channel.
