• 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:

This will seem like a silly question... but... How do you change from one scan list to another and have it stay on the second scanlist. We have several scan lists built and loaded (from ARC500) and when we try to go from say list 4 to list 5 it just turns them off or on and/or it does not go and stay on scan list 5. How do we listen to a specific scan list and switch between scan lists? Any help is appreciated

To turn scan lists on, press the number key assigned to the list. To turn the scan list off just press the number key again. For double digit scan lists you use the function key followed by the second digit. Example: 13 would be function 3.

Thanks - we had figured out this part. But how do we listen to a specific scan list and then change to listen to a different scan list?

Sounds like he wants to be able to "HOLD" on a particular scanlist without having to deactivate (turn off) as many as 19 other scanlists. A very nice feature on the Unidens.
Not exactly! Unidens don't have scanlists so I assume you are talking about holding on a system which is only useful if everything you want to listen to is on the same system. A scanlist can be TGs on multiple systems, conventional frequencies, searches and sweeps.

I didn't say or suggest that they were the "exactly" the same thing. But if it gives you a chubby... I'll re-phrase by saying that it sounds as if he would like "HOLD" on a scanlist... just as you can "HOLD" on a system on the Uniden models.... a particuarly nice and useful feature.
