The issue you are having is that you do not have a grasp of the radio's structure and design. The radio has no channels. You may program up to 1952 objects. Objects are defined as frequncies, talkgroups, etc. You can program conventional frequencies, Trunked system frequencies (limit 32 frequencies to a system. if more than 32 you have to set the system up again) and Trunged Talkgroups. The max of all these is 1,952. So you program your conventional frequencies and point them to one of the 20 allowable ScanLists. You program a trunked systems control and alternate frequencies and then add as many talkgroups you want and point to a ScanList but again once all of these add up to 1,952 objects you have maxed out the scanner. You also have the ability to create multiple V-folders.Sorry for the late reply, but it says I can preprogram over 500 different channels into it. Yet I see that there is only 30 quick save slots. How would i put in the other 470?
Actually I'd recommend either of the Made in U.S.A. products—PSREdit or Win500—over any other choices. I'm certain that their authors have more knowledge of the internal workings of this scanner!How can you beat 41 years of experience for advice, lol (Swipesy, Edmscan 14 years Tes 13 years)?
This ⬆⬆⬆⬆Your radio has just one receiver, so it can tune to only one frequency at a time. However, it is able to very rapidly check programmed frequencies to see if they are active.
Have you read through this guide? Easier to Read Pro-651/652/106/197 - WS1040/1065 - PSR 500/600 Digital Scanner Manual
Agreed .. knowing the history of the authors. Both are well known and trusted developers in the forums here.Actually I'd recommend either of the Made in U.S.A. products—PSREdit or Win500—over any other choices.
