If you follow the instructions below and the frequencies aren't getting stored into memory, then something is wrong with the scanner

Into Channels
1. Press Hold. Then enter the channel number
where you want to store a frequency, then press
Func and Pgm. The channel number appears.

2. Use the number keys and to enter the
frequency (including the decimal point) you want
to store.

3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel.

Thanks!

I'm going to end up returning the scanner. I't's not really working to my use. Wants a good handheld scanner to get? I do wildfire photography and I'm only expected to use a handheld when I go out to fires, so I'm not expected to use it every day.

You haven't given a location on where you are and who you need to monitor. Then, we can point you in the correct direction for what type of scanner to get.

OK. What you need to sufficiently hear the systems mentioned, is, either the PSR-300(my recommendation), or the RS Pro-164(which is it's almost twin). San Diego county has gone digital, but some of the talkgoup ID's are analog. Riverside and San Bernadino are still conventional, as are Cal Fire, USFS, and the BLM. The best way to program the scanner is to download Win97 from http://www.starrsoft.com Win97 will program both of the radios.
With either the PSR300, or, Pro-164, a usb programming cable is neccessary. There is a Ham Radio Outlet in San Diego there website is: http://www.hamradio.com
They sell the PSR-300 and the programming cable.
You can alphatag the banks and the frequencies for easier identification of what you are monitoring. Plus, you can put in all the frequencies( both radios have 1000 memories) without having to reprogram for the different areas.
HTH,
Larry
I own an earlier version of the 300/164-the RS Pro-97
