I've been using Baofengs for a year now.  I have a UV-5RD+, a BF-F9 V2+, 
and a UV-XR.  Since I live on an island in the Atlantic, and my contact 
with North America is through two repeaters on Cape Cod, I love the dual 
watch feature.  If I program the radio to display the name on the first 
line and the frequency on the second line, how would I monitor two 
repeaters and exactly what buttons would I have to push to make that 
happen?  Chris Knowles
