Default Trying to get to the Meat and Potatoes :)

Good morning everyone! first with my location im currently in Coatesville PA Chester County. I have had no trouble listening to my county emergency services with my 436. Im trying to branch out and was scanning 800Mhz this morning. I came across what looks like a control channel @ 860.3125 instead of combing through the database I wanted to do some discovery and learn how to use that feature.

From my research on here and correct me if im wrong. If I find a control channel and use discovery the 436 will automatically give me my band plan and ill be able to log the different talkgroups.

Now for the problem. Even though I saved the frequency in my quick save list. The 436 asks for a system name and no matter what I name it it says not found.

Can someone point me in the right direction...and please no spoilers
