If you have a system already programmed into the scanner I would set it up as a separate group under the programmed system. Is this the frequency your trying to monitor
Long Range West Side Feeder - Low - Meacham S Aircraft
Approach / Departure
It says it's a conventional system and you would have to add it to a conventional system if you have one already programmed, or you will have to setup a new conventional system and enter it. I'm also new to scanning and if someone else has a better idea hopefully they will chime in. The only other way would be to use the custom search mode and make sure the freq is in the range you need to monitor.
1. Press the Menu button (bottom side of scanner.)
2. Using the Scroll knob (top of scanner) Select Program System the press E.
3. Using the Scroll knob, select New System then press E.
4. Using the Scroll knob, select System Type (Conventional) then press E.
5. Using the Scroll knob select Edit Name then press E.
6. Tap the decimal button (under the 7 button) until all the letters disappear.
7. You?re now ready to name your system.
8. Using the Scroll knob, turn it until the alphabet you want appears then press then press the Func button (bottom side of scanner) while turning Scroll knob to the right to advance one space. If you make a mistake press the Func button while turning the Scroll knob to the left to make the correction. When you finish naming your system press E.
9. Using the Scroll knob select Edit Group then press E twice.
10. Using the Scroll knob select Edit Name then press E.
11. You?re now ready to name your group (Follow directions from step 8) to name your group.
12. Using the Scroll knob select Edit Channel then press E
13. Input a frequency then press E.
14. Press the Menu button.
15. Using the Scroll knob select New Channel
16. Repeat steps 13 through 15 until all frequencies for that group have been entered.
Quickest way to store the frequency? Press "E" to enter it into a Quick Save Group, then move it, or relabel the Quick Save Group later. If you have the CTCSS/DCS search on it will also save the detected code found when you quick store your frequency.
I was at a Target store last evening and was using the Special, Service Search. The 396 locked on the frequency displayed the DCS, I pressed "E" to quick save, then alpha-taged it when I got back to the car.
