Default Spanning Bands

I have a Radio Shack pro 83. I have it programed in 4 bands. I need to start with band 1 and go to 2, 3, and 4 then back to 1 again. Is there a way to do this?

Do you mean "Banks" instead of "Bands"?
If so, turn off the other banks and it will scan 1, 2, 3, 4, and repeat.

KE5BCP you were correct, I did mean bands. I have the other bands turned off but I don't think it is going past channel 10.

garysvan,

Thanks for the reply. The only bands that I have showing are 1,2,3,and 4. The rest are turned off but band 1 is the only one flashing. That is why I don't think 2, 3, and 4 are scanning. I don't hear anything that is on those bands.

sounds like you do not have anything programed into the other banks press hold and then enter a channel number in the other banks like channel 21 then press hold again it will show what is programed into it.

I tried that and there was nothing. I can't figure that out. I used the software and programmed it yesterday.
