I have a few mutli-site systems in my 396XT that I have ALL the sites set as the same SQK. I just let it roll-thought all of them that it finds control channel data on.

If you want to hold on a specific site, press the HOLD button for approx. 3 seconds, and the unit will beep. The HOLD icon on the screen will flash as well. Now, you are held on that specific site, and the unit can then resume scanning talkgroups. You must do the same long-hold press of HOLD to make the scanner go back to looking at all the sites in order.

I did not want to waste SQK's on mine as well...

I put all of the Riverside sites into one system with a different site quick key for each site.

Just add your additional sites under your 12th system and assign the same (or different) SQK(12) to each site. With trunked systems SQKs are assigned by site, not by system.

I monitor Riverside SO with my 396XT when I visit family in Riverside. I also have 5 TG groups assigned under my primary Riverside SO System (1-Central TGs, 2-Cross County TGs, 3- Patch TGs, 4-Southwest TGs, 5- West TGs), but you can assign all TGs to one group if you wish.
