• 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 defined SCAN-GROUP 1 to scan certain banks. Ditto for SCAN-GROUP 2. But I can't figure out how to activate either of these scan groups.

According to the manual, I PUSH F PUSH SCAN, then choose my scan group. Then I PUSH Ent.

Then I PUSH SCAN, expecting my scan group to take effect. But it doesn't...it just scans whatever memory bank was previous active. It seems to completely ignore my "chosen" scan group. What am I doing wrong?

Friend, I do not have my radio or manual with me but did you select the appropriate Scan Group utilizing the Pass key??

I am located outside of Pittsburgh, and I could care less of the Steelers and Pittsburgh, drop me a PM and we'll go from there.

Ok, I figured it out. Turns out when you start scanning, you must manually select one of the banks that's in the scan group. Then the scan group will take effect.

Scan was stuck on 'h', which was not in my scan group. As soon as I manually selected E, which was part of my scan group...then it worked.
