• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Hi. I was pretty pleased with myself to use the hits with scan feature, set it up so that all my hits would go into qk31......fine no problems.............but I cant seem to delete the individual found channels.....

I can lock out the system but there is no way on this green earth I can work out how to get rid of them individually. Someone please help me.

Pointy.

What model is your scanner? Mine is a Bearcat BC-92XLT. Here is how I delete channels. Press HOLD on the found channel and press PROGRAM and enter all zero's and press PROGRAM again and that should delete the unwanted channel. Let me know if that does not work and I will try to think of something else. I hope that helps! Aaron.

Okay, sorry I am unable to help. Does your scanner have a toll-free number? You may be able to call them for info.

Oh Dear......I feel a bit silly now. Just read the manual!! No wonder I couldn't find the option to delete the found channels. The radio deletes them on power down.
Teach me to try and learn this scanner on the fly.

Sorry...."Blushing" ;-(

Try this..Hit menu then go to "Program System" hit enter,navigate to "Close Call" enter again and I think you look for edit channel hit enter then you will have the option to delete..

Im not at home so i cant actually do it,this is all by memory so I hope it's correct..
