Month old xt using the Pro version of Arc-XT....Been reading all the threads I could find here at this forum for like problem that I have...I have loaded the counties that I want to listen to but while monitoring the trunking systems in the scan/search mode it brings in my FM, Pub. safety, Special and Custom bands, cycles through them all and when it locks on FM there it sits...Anyway and obviously this is a bit more than annoying.........Haven't a clue to eliminate this problem...Also I see where the Free Scan program comes recommended by some subscribers. Have given thought to Free Scan but some requirements to FS are Internet Explorer and some .net program I don't have and am leary of putting dl additional programs...
Any ideas , help or suggestions would be appreciated..did try to make this short{next time}...

Could it be your squelch?

Re: FreeScan, I love it. I tried out Arc, but FreeScan was much more intuitive for me. If you know someone locally try it out on their machine, and see how you feel.

Has anyone locally uploaded a Arc file you could dl and compare to yours? Without being there I'd just be guessing.

You have enabled all of the Service and Custom searches. You need to disable them in ARC-XT (I don't know how) or using the scanner's front-panel controls (F+L/O, L/O while it is on the search you don't want to have activated).

If that's the problem, I totally misread your question :( My apologies for chiming in.
