Thanks a bunch, I really appreciate the response.

The note from Katy at Baofeng was a little vague.  “At this time the squelch
limits cannot be adjusted” — What does “at this time” mean?  That the feature
may somehow be enabled in the future?  How would they do that?  In a new
hardware release (the -V2?)?  With a firmware update?  Or with communication to
Chirp developers to explain necessary changes to the driver for the MURS-V1?

Any of those are probably a long way off in the future, if they happen at all, so
no point in holding my breath.  Oh well.  It was worth looking into.

Thanks again!
