• 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:

Hello,
Does anyone know how to change the display to show the channels and not just the frequency?
I have done:
-hold menu and turn on
-changed MDF A and B to name.

Any other suggestions? Could it be that my names are too long? (would it not simply truncate?)

Thanks,
~Susan

Firstly, welcome to the Radio Reference forums, Susan. Secondly, as for your display question, once you changed MDF-A and MDF-B to NAME, did you then press MENU again to confirm the selection before pressing EXIT? If you did that and it's not displaying the alphanumeric name for the channel position, then I'm not sure what is amiss.

Let me know if you are still having trouble. And again, welcome to the Radio Reference forums.
