Anyone know if there is a work around or solution for this problem?
I see in the specs sheets and manual that it says the radio should scan as well as be able to do mixed mode.
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.
The 4061 will not scan in digital mode, when you setup the radio for "LMR digital" it disables the scan function radio wide.
The 4061 does not support mixed mode operation either, these are early (1st generation) iDAS radios, if you want one that supports scan and mixed mode, you'll need to move up to a newer radio such as an 4161 or 4261. Nor does it support encryption (not that this is an issue for ham radio)
iDAS was just born back in 2005 when these hit the market, 99 percent of them don't even have the UT-119 installed. Be lucky you got that the board alone is $200 if you can find it.
