Motorola XTS 5000 Scan Program question.
 
Hey y'all new to these forums and also new to Motorola CPS. I have a Motorola XTS 5000 (VHF) and the proper CPS (R20) to program it but I have been having some difficulty with the "scan" and "program scan list" features. And also how to select channels for scanning both in CPS and the radio. Also can I scan more then 1 zone at a time? I am only using conventional channels, not trunking. Help would be appreciated, thanks!

Scan tab on each personality has to have a scan list selected

Is it possible to scan multiple zones at once?

You can scan channels from different zones (in the same scan list) but only 16 at once. Really, it's 15 + 1 (15 plus selected) but that's the hard-coded limit and no one's figured any way around that.
