• 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:

Can anyone reference me a source picture, or just specific knowledge, of a 500 LCD Icon ident display? I've run across two icons that I don't know what they reference. Both are in the bottom row. One is just right of center and looks like a lightning bolt, from one o'clock to seven o'clock. The other is a small letter "i" (without quotes), that has occasionally appeared in the same row but over to the right hand edge of the screen.

Also, on the scanner face, there is a small red LED on the right hand side between the PRI & WX buttons.

These aren't identified in the owners manual.

Thx

Chris

The lightning bolt indicates a received signal.

The lightning bolt indicates a received CTCSS/DCS/NAC. If the lightning bolt is preceded by a"S" it indicates you have programmed the tone for Search.

That's not an LED. It's the "Skywarn" symbol. Pressing FUNC WX enters Skywarn mode (which really just scans the objects you've placed in the special Skywarn scan list).
