TYT UV8000E FAQ:
Q: How do I reset the radio to factory defaults?
A: Press and hold the “F” (Function) key while switching the radio on. “RESET?” will appear on the screen. Press “F” again to confirm, or “U/V” to cancel the operation.
Q: How many memories does it have? I am confused by many seller listings that state “2 x 128 memories” and such.
A: The radio has 128 memories. “2 x 128 memories” is either an error or exaggeration on behalf of some sellers. It also supports 25 separate memories for storing FM broadcast stations.

Q: I have enable the cross-band repeater function on my radio, turned it on and it works. However, there is no indication on the display showing that the feature is active. Is my radio broken?

A: The battery capacity is 3600mAh.
