Mike, you have no frequencies programmed into your scanner to scan - so it will say all channels locked out ... ie in other words ... there's nothing to scan and a 0.00 Mhz is
considered nothing. Now I would advise you to lQQk at the RRDatabase - state - county
and get a game plan together ... ie - Bank#0-Fire Depts, Bank#1=Police Depts, and so on.
When that scanner was shipped to RS, it had a VERY generic pre-loaded list of 150 freqs
that is basically a "hit and miss" proposition at best ... aparently someone cleared these out
if so your not missing much ... it is far better that you customize it yourself for your area !!!
If your curious lQQk at the bQQk and just for kicks ... you can load these preloaded freqs
just for grins and then turn around and clear them after checking the ones with traffic.
My own layout:B0=FD, B1=PD, B2=State, B3=Federal, B4=Schools, B5=Military Use,
B#6=FRS/GMRS/MURS/BB, B#7=Ham Radio, B#8=Air Traffic, B#9=Emergency/911 use.
Good Luck and here is I think the routine below to load the preloaded 150 freqs in B0&B1
1. Turn off the scanner, then turn it on again. Multi-system
Trunking Scanner appears.
2. Press 0 while Multi-system Trunking Scanner appears.
3. Press 1.
4. Press ENT. Initializing please stand by. appears for about 5
Do not turn off the scanner until the initalization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000
appears on the top line of the display. Bank 0 Ch 00
