I've been using the old bank and channel ways of doing things for so many years all this system/group thing is new to me. While scanning say I want to go to a specific channel in system 1 and it's scanning in system 4. Can I jump to the channel I want without scrolling through everything? How could I do this?

Thanks very much.

I, too, would like to know how to do this.

I find this capability, which is so easily done on my BC895 and 898 scanners, to be extremely useful. Yet, I think it's next to impossible with these damn DMA scanners. It's for this very reason that I often think the BCT15 and BCD996T are much less useful (and I have one of each).

In many regards, the "channel"-based scanners are just plain easier to use for me.

Try reading the operator's manual page 44.

F + [SCAN/SEARCH] Key
• Use this combination in Search Hold mode or monitoring in Search mode. Use
to resume searching.
• In all other modes except Search, Search Hold, and GPS, press
[SCAN/SEARCH] to display Quick Search Prompt.

That DEFINITELY is NOT what I'm looking for. What a mess that option is!

All that does is toggle between ID Search and ID Scan.
