    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:

I arranged one scan list with conventionals and NAC codes- scan list 4.

Scan list 5 is a grouping of limit searches.

Scan list 6 is trunked objects.

In global the default scan list is set to 6.

In global scan list 4, 5, and 6 are selected.

While scanning lists 4,5,6 the radio is making me think it's not hitting everything.

I toggle scan list 5 and 6 off to scan only scan list 4. When i hit manual, you would think i would only see the conventional NAC's i stored in scan list 4, but i see stuff from scan list 6.

***I notice if i hit the back or forward arrow it will bring me back to the objects in scan list 4. I then hit scan, then manual, and the objects in scan list 4 stay there.

Now if i toggle 5 back on, or 6, as im still scanning objects in 4, am i still hitting it all?

Another thing i notice while in scan list 4, i can turn the squelch all the way down, hit scan with 5 on with the limit searches, and i will only see channel as it's moving at the bottom of the display. Once i turn the squelch up to a certain point, then the display alternates between "channel" and "limit search". I take it with squelch turned all the way down it is only scanning scan list 4 and not moving through 5.

What is bothersome is if i toggle 5 and 6 off with 4 on, i want to see what is in 4 right away. Or if i only want to see what is in 5- and shut 6 and 4 off. Anyone know what im talking about here?


Thanks.

Press PSE (pause) instead of manual. Manual will display what was active the last time you used manual not what is currently being scanned. PSE only works while scan is holding on an active channel. The only way I know of to stop the scan on the active scan list is to crank the squelch CCW then hit PSE and return the squelch to where is was.

Thanks. All i can say is this radio has it's own brain! Imagine the thing further, more reception of systems we cant hear yet, user voice activation/command hands free....

I guess we can count the stuff we have as better anyway, im pleased with what the radio will do all in one spot.
