By "refuses to accept" do you mean the scanner does not show that frequency, but an adjacent frequency? Being close enough at VHF and UHF doesn't matter, it is within .0005 and should work fine. I don't believe that radio is amongst the most recent models which will show you the exact frequency. The frequency displayed may only be 6 digits and this will not be a problem. You don't need to worry about adjacent frequency clutter (a nearby user on an adjacent frequency won't interfere) because there just aren't any users that close in frequency.
