Programming a BC780XLT... One of the frequencies I need to have is, as listed in the database here: 154.1675 532 DPL

When I enter this into the scanner it changes it to 154.1700...

Is there a setting to allow it to accept this frequency or is the scanner not capable of receiving it?

Using ProScan v5.2 to program the scanner...

Thanks!

Thank you for the quick reply!

The step dropdown is set to 5... should it be set to something else? Choices are 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 25, 50, 100

Another frequency is even more of a problem, 482.7375 023 DPL gets changed to 482.7400 and pulls in a differnet agency altogether...

For the VHF freq, I suspect it should be set to 7.5 khz. I'm unsure about the UHF one - although if this is narrowband (and I suspect it is), 12.5 khz is about as close as you're going to get, I think, although 5 khz might work in this case...

Here is our wiki article on narrowbanding...
