• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I sometimes hear a transmission that I want to lock on, but don't get to the button fast enough and of course its then off scanning other channels. Any 15x users know of an easy way to get back to the last Tx? Keeping it scanning of course makes one go through however many other transmissions, hoping to get back...(This is with multiple systems and groups active). Thanks.

No, however you can press hold for two seconds, if you are quick enough, to stay on the system that included the active comm and get a little closer. The only radios that have this feature are the latest ones from GRE/Radio Shack (GRE OEM).

Trying changing the delay time to a higher time.Or you could quicky change the scanning direction back towards the freq you want.

Two great tips- thanks. Didn't know about the 2-second hold and great idea on scanning down.

How is it the scanner knows (inversely) to move on?
For example; "2B30 10-8" I always can easily get to the Hold in time.
"Shots fired, Code 3 cover" it seems to resume scanning immediately (and every other channel has plenty of traffic so ti takes forever to go all the way around).

How do it know? :)
