• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

So you have a system (or systems) that you did not assign a system quick key to.
Press and hold the Function key and turn the scroll control until you see the system you do not wan to hear and press L/O. No when you scan it should be skipped.

Make sure you have a system quick key assigned to all your systems if you want to turn them on and off. You can do that from ARC396. keep in mind, you can assign the same system quick key to more than one system.

You must have more than 3 systems programmed,or your have a whole bunch of extra quick keys enabled for some reason.

You said the display read S4:1234567890,and it now reads S3:1234567890.That means all those systems are still enabled.Are you sure your locking out the entire system ? like described above ? You may just be locking out one frequency,or one talkgroup.

I find it's easier to just turn systems off,instead of locking them out.Just key in the number of the system you want to disable,and then key it in again to enable it.use the "." to enter systems above 0-9.

So if you have S3:1234567890 showing now,then enter .31,.32,.33.34,etc until they are all off.Now repeat with any other that may be on.

You can make sure in the software that you are not enabling any quick keys which are not assigned.Also,you can set up which systems are enabled by default when you load the unit.
