You're welcome. Sorry for the delay getting back to you on the second question. Once you set up the wildcard then the scanner will treat that * as an object that searches for talk groups not programmed in the memory. When it finds one then it will display the talk group id. So yes the scanner will treat it as an object and you can decide what scan lists to apply it to.
As I said Thanks so much for the help but I do have one more question. When programming a tsy group is it better to set the multi site to off or roam. If roam is better what do I set the the hi and lo threshold to. I am new and trying to get into this but I do have questions... Again ty so much
Sorry for the delay, been busy at work. It will depend on whether you are wanting to monitor a single site or multiple sites. There are several sites in my area that I monitor so I had mine set to roam. Low threshold about 75 & high about 95 worked good for me for the roam feature.
When in programmed mine for my statewide system I put the towers closest to me in one system, then went from there. For example I put the towers in my county and the immediate surrounding counties in one system. Then, since I travel for work, I would put the next nearest towers in a separate system and so forth. So when i traveled I could just switch systems easily.
