• 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:

I think this is what you mean if not here's a link to the manual. http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/ProductManuals/2000137_PM_EN.pdf

I'm pretty sure you just have to overwrite the TAG, not completely delete it.

Editing a Tag

To input a tag:
• Press the number/letter buttons multiple
times until the desired letter appears.
• Rotate the knob clockwise to move the
cursor to the left, counterclockwise to move
to the right.

Hope this helps

If I recall correctly, the tag is automatically changed to match the bank name when you store.

You can test that out quickly by changing the name of Bank 1 and then storing it into one of the races that you have deleted. You didn't need to delete them by the way .... just storing your new data into the prestored banks would clear them out.

WA1ATA's got it - all you have to worry about is when programming active bank 0, is to remember to edit/change the bank 0 alpha tag first. THEN go ahead and store bank 0 into any of the A/B/C/D/E/F race banks. When you do, it will overwrite the default race name that is in there with the alpha tag you programmed manually for bank 0.

There is no way to totally delete the race banks alpha tags. You've got to have some sort of name, even just a period if it bugs you. :) If you try to leave bank 0's alpha tag blank, it will get automatically changed to a generic ""CH Bank 0". I'd just program bank 0 and its own tag

Menu > Pgm Ch Bank > 0 > Edit Tag > "AA Fuelers" or whatever...

then program in all the frequencies for the race into bank 0, and then save it into A-F:

Menu > Preset Race > Store Race > and now anything A-F. The 137 will overwrite what is in A-F including your own alpha tag that you assigned to bank 0.

Multiple custom races might require reprogramming bank 0 (and bank 1 if it is large enough) a few times as you store them into the A-F race banks.
