DTMF has always been an issue with several of the BaoFeng models. The
UV-82 I normally use has B and C reversed. IIRC, the "D" (exit) key
doesn't work at all on the UV-5 models - certainly doesn't on mine.
See section #5.4 DTMF keypad positions:
Remember that you can remap A-D commands to other DTMF combos.
Also, there is a BaoFeng issue with feedback/background-noise using
DTMF commands depending on one of the menu settings. Don't recall the
setting, but it's discussed someplace in the archives I think.
I echo Doug's suggestion to only buy from Amazon or a well-rated Amazon
third-party seller when you're buying one of these types.
Aside: putting ~8W in one of those models is not a great idea.
Myself: in my "fleet" I have a well-tamed dependable UV82 throw-away
that serves me well, and a pack of 2 *red* UV-5Rs with extra batteries
(occasionally recharged) always stored in the back of my truck to
break-out for on-the-road emergencies etc.
