I am setting up my new 396XT for the first time, using freescan to load a bunch of freqs. Why doesn't the display show the site name when it is scanning (it shows the group name instead)? Right now I have the SQKs organized by geography. If I travel somewhere but then I decide I want to quickly pull up a certain kind of conversation, let's say there is a widespread power outage and I want to select the electric utility freqs I already have programmed in the scanner, what would be the easiest way to find it? Would I take along with me a printed spreadsheet of all of my freqs? That would seem like going back to cave man days.. does the 396XT have a way to "label" certain groups into interest categories? Bundling these under Systems or Sites doesn't work because the interesting freqs may span across different types of systems (conventional, P25, etc) and it would take a lot of work to reorganize the way these are pulled in from the radioreference db. Also I'm not sure if the 396XT will even display the Site names. hmmm maybe this is what the SQKs are supposed to do.. should I re-arrange SQKs according to interest areas and then bring along a spreadsheet saying what 0-99 means?
