Default PSR-800 Receive DCS Only Mode?

I have been using spectrum sweeper which works well, though I am picking up a lot of undesired transmissions. The ones I am trying to find are using Digital Code Squelch (DCS). If I skip the non-DCS frequencies, there is the chance that a DCS broadcast is using the same frequency, so by skipping I would no longer be able to detect a DCS transmission on that skipped frequency.

Is there any way to set the PSR-800 to receive broadcasts using DCS only?

For Spectrum Sweeper searches it is not possible to select DCS.

If your search range is not too broad, you can program in multiple limit searches and set each of them to receive only DCS frequencies.

How do you program in multiple limit searches in the PSR-800? I've only been able to do one at a time. On my PSR-500, I was able to create multiple limit searches and set them as scanable objects. I miss that feature on the PSR-800,

Looks like PSR-800 doesn't have a way to set the mode to DC/DCS only in Limit Search either.
