It is a BTech UV-5X3. It is not manufactured by Baofeng. That is why
you won't find the UV-5X3 listed under the drop-down Vendor list for
Baofeng. The Vendor BTECH must be selected to find the UV-5X3.

Have you set menu 35 (STE) and menu 36 (RP-STE) to OFF? In CHIRP it would be...

Settings -> Basic Settings -> Squelch Tail Eliminate (HT to HT):
{untick this setting}
Settings -> Basic Settings -> Squelch Tail Eliminate (repeater):
{change this setting to Off)
