    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:

I have tried this several times. I set only 1 system to Startup Key 3. Held down 3 during power up...It says on the screen Starup Config Key No. 5 Processing Please Wait.

The scanner will begin scanning on the 1 system, but them continue through all my programming.

Anyone else get this to work? Or is this a bug?

Does every system have to be assigned a startup key for this to work? I noticed those that are assigned keys were locked out, but those with no key were still unlocked.

I think it should lockout everything NOT on the startup key, even if it isn't assigned to another key.

Systems not assigned a startup key are not affected by the startup key sequence. That is, if they were unlocked before, they will still be unlocked after.

Thanks Paul,

I think it would be more beneficial to be able to have only the systems on the Start Key turned on and all others off. But I can also see the need to have those not affected.

thanks,

I have a nationwide and another airband that I don't want affected, so they aren't assigned. All others are assigned...
