    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:

You first need to set a custom search range. To do this press Menu > Search For > Edit Custom > (you can use any of the 10 search ranges, but only custom 1, 2, and 3 have dedicated buttons on the scanner's keypad for quick access). NOTE: The 996XT's 700MHz range starts at 758MHz, entering anything lower will result in an error message.

Once you have set the frequency range (and any other other filters you wish to set), you can use it to search. If you used Custom 1-3 then you can quickly search by pressing HOLD then press 1, 2, or 3. If you used Custom 4-10 then you can search by pressing Menu > Search For > Custom Search (all search ranges will scan by default, you can use the number keys to disable the other search ranges).

You can also set a quick-key for your search range and scan it like any other "system", or enable the "Search with Scan" feature to have it always scan through the search range while in scan mode.

Hope this helps :)
