So on my 536, ranges are set correctly, modulation, etc.
When I search the "TBand" frequencies, used commonly in this area, it doesn't stop on any of them.
453-454, 460-461, no issues. 470-473, 480-484 it doesn't stop on anything. My local city operates on 483.0625, and in search mode it doesn't even stop on them. If I pause it, and manually tune it to the frequency, it picks up the department fine. When I return it to search mode, nothing...

Is there something I am missing in this? Why some ranges work and others don't?

Also I have tried both the auto mode and FM modulation mode. Our city is still FM, not NFM yet.

Step size is correct as I am able to pause and tune it manually ok.

Nevermind I figured this out, but it's good to note. If you turn the UHF TV broadcast screen on, it also skips the T Band frequencies (which are TV channels.)
