All of the channels and settings on my Baofeng are the exact same ones that i want to program in to my new Leixen.

The first thing you need to do is to make sure CHIRP can even program
your VV-898. Leixen has changed the radio since the original CHIRP

If CHIRP does program your VV-898 OK, then all you need to do is
import a saved CHIRP Radio Images (*.img) file from your UV-5R into a
tab from your VV-898. I use a UV-5R image as the master from
programming all of my CHIRP supported dual-band radios. A more
