Thank you for answering.
Yes. That is what I've done with everything in Arizona.
Obviously, I spend most of my time down here in Tucson, but I do travel up your way quite frequently, in fact tomorrow, I'll be up there for a few hours
If you don't want the radio to scan a specific tower/site, you can set it to "temporary" or "Permanent" Avoid.
I usually use temporary, so when I restart the scanner, it goes back to the default.
You can Avoid and stop Avoiding on the fly with the x36HP radios. Love this ability over the PSR-800
As was mentioned by Joe, you can do the same thing with the "departments" too.
Keeping all under one FL per system makes it easier for you to locate the individual departments.
Having said that, I am currently experimenting with what you suggested doing with the PCWIN system coming on line down here. When Tucson Fire Department went live on PCWIN, I created a Tucson Fire Department only FL. So far, it doesn't seem to make sense for me to do that, as I can also turn on and off by service type, the radio traffic I'd like to hear.
But, that is the beauty of these scanners and we have to figure it out. The next thing I'm going to try is to set it up by region - north, south, east, west, and build FL's based upon these parts of Pima County, with Departments from these respective areas. That will ensure I'm not scanning other stuff, I could, but don't want to hear
