    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello:

Two questions for the 996 folks:

a. regarding the display on the bottom left
(and pertaining to their dwg in the manual)

Item 1, the Group Quick Key is clear.

But for item 2 which they call "Site Quick Key" -

what is the "0" immediately after the "S"

are the numbers following the two vertical dots the QK's that are active ?

is the meaning of "site" the same as "channel"

b. I noticed that the manual that came with the unit, and the manual that is downloadable from the Uniden site in pdf form are different. Unfortunately, neither seems to have a rev. number or date.

Which do you think would be the latest ?

Thanks,
B.

S=System
S0: 1234567890 is for System Quick Keys 1-0
S1: 1234567890 is for System Quick Keys 10-19
S2: 1234567890 is for System Quick Keys 20-29
and so on thru S9: 1234567890

Remember to enable / disable System Quick Keys use (.No) then 1 then 1 again for example when using QK 11 (.No) is the shift key for all 2-digit System Keys

As for the owners manual I would use the one that came with the scanner

Hope this helps
