I use CHIRP on my UV-25X4 and UV-50X2.  Check the settings tab in CHIRP, sub 
tab Work Mode Settings.  There you will find MR A thru D and VFO A thru D. 
Even when set, these appear to have little impact.  Jim (see thread comment 
below) is correct.  Any time I power on my rig, what is in CHIRP memory 
channel #0 is active in position #3 of the display.  In my case,  I have 
display #3 and #4 synced with #3 the frequency and #4 the tag.  This is not 
a problem for me since I monitor this particular repeater.  Just put in 
CHIRP memory #0 what you want to monitor on rig position #3.   Great radios 
these Baofengs!
