I've been out of the loop for a while and this is my first digital scanner but truthfully I prefer to do it manually anyway. I'd rather because you learn more about how to program and what else it can do. Between all the info on this site and trial and error, it was just a matter of figuring it all out. I already learned what NOT to do and now it's not very difficult at all.
My thoughts exactly. The only way you learn is by making mistakes. Ive had my GREs for a few years and im still finding out little odds and ends when playing around with the programming. Marks Easier to Read manuals in the wiki section really help as well.
me 396T has over 150 systems and 2500 frequencies.
as for my county system it just shows talkgroup numbers, but i am a numbers kind of guy and i just listen to the unit that gets the call. no need to see "dispatch 3".
