From the manual...

In the Radio Identification section there are three modes for identifying your radio, Nickname, Callsign and Model. After enting in a Nickname or Callsign, clicking the buttons beside the text will cause the corresponding information to appear in the OLED display on the front of the radio.

I guess it would be useful if you wanted to name your radio Fred.
