    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:

Hi this has been a problem for a while now. Every time I power my scanner on It starts to scan my regular groups I want, but also throws military service search into the scan. So I have to push function then l/o. The scanner then says temporarily locked out. So that is fine I do not have to deal with it again until my next power cycle. I have looked every where in the manual, freescan, the menus. But I just can't figure out how to shut this off. It is not a big deal but as I am sure you can imagine it becomes quite annoying after a while to have to do this every time I power up. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Wow that simple. Can't believe I didn't know that after using this scanner for so long. That fixes that little bug of mine. Thanks!

You can use the menu to see which searches are set to scan mode

Menu>Search for...>Edit Service>pick the service you want to change>Search with Scan>Set Lockout>Lockout

Cool thanks. I didn't know that. Perhaps because I never use service search mode. I always use custom search. I guess me bypassing all the stuff I consider "dummy" mode I forgot all these things. I have been happy with this radio though. Best scanner I have ever owned.
