New to the scanner, so any tips or tricks will be greatly appreciated. Planning on programming with a windows 10 computer. I will be setting up in my SW Arkansas home, and would greatly like to hear from neighbors with Ar. ties.

This unit can suffer from overload and interference if used with an external antenna esp. in the VHF band. I would recommend if possible using just the built in antenna. I use one of the 800 MHz scanner antenna Radio Shack sells for handheld scanners on my unit.

With this type of scanner it is best to first create your systems and then add your talk groups which and then assign the talk groups to scan lists. I love this type of scanner as individual conventional channels and individual talk groups IDs can be assigned to multiple scan lists as necessary.

Thanks for the information about using outside antenna. That was in the back of my mind for a project later on.
