ok i will try that ! use to just put freq. in and scan now all the groups and armer and whatnot . thanks i really appreciate it . would be nice too have someone sitting right beside me an showing me what is what !
i have been disabled for 12 years and technology has really passed me by.
ok , those will also help ! have been away doing other stuff today and will be away from home for a few days , but will keep playing with it and i think i will get better at it with those videos that is just like some one sitting beside me .
i have all the stuff downloaded on computer and updated. but it was not picking anything up so i went into menu and punched some buttons and finally i am getting some local and some really far away, like st. cloud hp and marshall hp . almost too good of reception . but then some make the speaker sound like it is broken and the volume on this home patrol is not good for a person who only has one working ear and the other is just above qualifying for a hearing aid , i have a amplified speaker but it won't work with hp , i called place where i got it and they told me that it would not work . thanks alot again !!!!!!!
I have had alot of the same problems that you are having with the home patrol. I use it with just the zip code entry and see what it picks up over and above my 396t or my 996xt its about the same. I feel like it was a waste of my money to by the home patrol.It was really nice to have when i travel but other then that my other scanners are doing a great job of scanning the areas i want to listen to. good luck with the software it takes along time to learn as you play with it the more you will understand how it works.
