The more I use this radio, and the more I learn how to use it, the happier I am with it! Two things haven't figured out yet.
How do I use the FM broadcast receiver option?
And, How do I set a priority channel?

Thank in advance!

Here's a good link to info on Priority Scan:

Easier to Read BCD436/536 Digital Scanner Manual

You basically have to set each frequency you want as Priority and then turn on the feature. The same for talkgroups, set each Talkgroup individually and turn on the feature thru the Trunked system menu it belongs to.

For the FM Broadcast, just press the Chan key while scanning to pause the radio, punch in the frequency of the station like "101.1" then press Chan again and it'll tune it just like your car radio. From there you can use the knob to go up or down the band manually to pick another station. Or press Chan again to have it scan and find the next active one.

You can also create your own Custom Search between 88.0 and 107.9MHz to search the band.
