From the manual:

Spectrum Sweeper sweeps through frequency ranges in 1 MHz
blocks, looking for transmissions from nearby strong signal
sources. When Special Mode is enabled, Spectrum Sweeper will
skip any 1 MHz block where you have skipped five or more
frequencies using the
SKIP key. Special Mode is useful when
you are close to many high power transmitters that are close
together in frequency. Use the
/II/SEL key to toggle Special

Mode enabled/disabled status.

Question ok

Ok so this is the way to eliminate the radio stopping on a frequency in Spectrum Sweeper mode like this

144.400 then 144.405,144.410 like that?If theres a strong signal on 144.404 just as an example then?

Reading what FXD posted, I would guess a little different. My guess is:

If your search had previously stopped on 144.400, 144.405, 144.410, (and two more nearby), and you had skipped all of them due to being objectionable (birdies, hissing, static, steady tone, etc.), then the radio, on it's own, would skip 1 MHz block covering those signals (in the future).

That's the way I would read FXD's Manual quote.

Wow that's good to know because mine sometimes locks on those frequencies and buzzes loudly. Somewhat annoying.

Yep! It's just one of the many good/nice features of the GRE made scanners.
