Happy Halloween to you, too! To answer your question: I personally I assign each bank to either a different service or a different area (like a bank for our favorite vacation spot; here at home have one bank for aero, another for FD/PD, etc.) and if one area (like home) with more frequencies than fit into a single band, use part (or all) of a second bank. (I hope this helps). BTW I developed my own spreadsheet to keep track of everything--it beats trying to remember everything, or scribbling everything in notes....Just wanting to know how everyone has their scanner set up, is it by county or by sheriff, police, fire and etc.
Happy Halloween Everyone
