    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:

When I try to add a conventional freq into Win500 it always defaults to Scan List 1. The shortcut to add new freq does not work. I cant highlight the frame. I have to go to the All freq screen and add new to end. It always defaults to scan list 1. Is this a bug or is there a fix ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What I do when I want to add a channel is go to where I want the channel to be, highlight the channel I want to follow, and "duplicate" it (from memory: Sft-Cntl-D). I then modify the duplicate with my new channel parameters. And then I recast the Object numbers.

I suppose by "All freq screen" you're referring to the All Objects tab.

What happens when you select the CONV objects tab and then press Alt+Ins or Ctrl+Shift+N? Either of these shortcuts should create a new conventional object, either above the currently selected conventional object or at the end of the list of conventional objects.

This new conventional object is highlighted and does indeed default to scan list 1. It's a rather simple process to assign the new highlighted object to any, all, or no scanlist—your choice—using the scanlists checkboxes near the upper-right of the screen.

Seems to me that this is the way Win500 is intended to work—not a bug.

You can also change the scanlist where new objects are placed by going to the General Settings screen; just look for Default Scan List on the upper left.

In Win500, you will need to go in and map where you want the conventional frequencies to go if you don't want them to go to Scan List 1.
