• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

New user.

I created, apparently successfully, a new system called
"air- Commercial" and have it set up as a "Conventional"

Don't want anything fancy like sub groups.
All I want to do is to be able to enter a dozen or so freq's under
this system name, and assign a Quik Key to be able to Scan all the
channels in it.

My understanding is that the hierachy is: System\Channels\Groups.
True ?
Again, I'm not interested, I think, in the sub-Group level.

Anyway, I go to System Editor\Action\Edit, but can't figure it out from here.

The "Site" tab is greyed out. Why ?
Is the meaning of "site" the same as "channel" ?

The "Group Settings" screen when opened is blank.

How do I just enter the individual channel freq's I want for the
System I just created ?
What screen do I want to pull up for this, please ?

Thanks,
B.

No. It is SYSTEM/GROUP/CHANNEL.

If you want to program the unit, your interest is important in the sub-group level. In order to program channels, you must create a Group for the channels to be stored.
The "Site" tab is greyed out. Why?
The system you are attempting to program is Conventional. The Site tab is for Trunked System programming.

No.

Open UASD. Open the system .usd file you are attempting to make. Click on 'NEW GROUP'. Then click on 'NEW CHANNEL' to populate the Group. If you only want to program one channel, click on 'NEW CHANNEL' one time. Then type in the frequency on line and column desired.
