Eh, shouldn't have to have/buy Excel after spending $600 on a scanner. Should be able to have those two separate windows open at the same time so that I can copy/paste between them. That seems easy to fix for Uniden.
Another software limitation I've found, why can't I modify the database other than "AVOID" on channels? What if I need to add Attenuation on specific Freq?
Why isn't there a duplication check for frequencies in the database?
As far as the scanner locking up during a conventional search, the problem I was seeing is that it would hit a certain frequency and stop, no sound, no recording. The AVOID button was unavailable and it wasn't recording anything and would sit there for minutes until I unplugged the antennae. Upon further investigation, it was stopping on a trunk system control frequency that is run by the feds but not really used in my area. During the hang, the signal strength meter showed full strength but no modulation.
Thanks for your help.
