    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.

Howdy all. I got a GPS for myself for Christmas so I have been messing around with it and the scanner all afternoon. I noticed a few different things; I usually just listen so these things only jump out when I am actually punching buttons.

1. When the GPS locks out a system it doesn't mark it with the '*' like if you manually used the quick key to lock it out. Is that normal? That is a little annoying. I want to see that the GPS locks and unlocks the systems visually.

2. I recall that I used to be able to see the line of 0-9 of group quick keys right below the system line. I no longer see this and it is really nice to see the scanner working its way though the groups. Is there a way I can turn that back on? As of right now if I push the function key it works like I want, but only momentary.

3. Is there any way to quickly see all the channels that I have done a temporary lock out on? As I am driving it will sometimes get stuck on a random channel and I lock it out and I would love a quick way to see all them and clear the ones I wish.

4. Is there anyway to assign the 'pre-programmed' systems like HAM and Air to a quick key?

Thanks all for helping me out with my novice questions.

1. Lock/unlock is not the same as enabling/disabling QK's. GPS uses the lock/unlock function so that you can still independently control which systems are affected by using their Quick Keys.

2. Press F to see GQK status.

3. Only by scrolling through channels.

4. Yes. SearchWithScan < UnidenMan4 < TWiki
