Hi guys just reading in the wiki that the pro 106 can hold 22 scan lists is that true even though it can hold 36,000 freqs? Doesn't make sense to me. Is there a way to expand the memory

Yes that is true. The Pro-106, Pro-197 and the GRE equivalents PSR-500 and PSR-600 can only have 22 scanlists (20 programmable +1 favorites list + 1 Skywarn list). And no there is no way to increase the memory.

However, you could make use of the 21 Virtual Scanner Memories (V-Scanner folder). You could program each V-scanner folder with 22 scanlists. You could only load one V-Scanner folder into working memory at a time, but you could easily switch V-Scanner folders and listen to a different set of scanlists.

Main memory can contain approximately 1800 objects, which you can distribute among the scan lists any way you want. You could put 1800 objects in a single scan list or you could put 90 objects in each of the 20 regular scan lists.

Scan lists are not fixed locations, they are virtual locations.

You can assign a given object to one scan list or to many.

There are 20 regular scan lists plus 2 special scan lists that cannot be scanned in combination with any other scan lists (if the 'Favorites' list is on, then the other 21 lists are off).

Now, consider V-folders: A V-folder is a place to store a backup of main memory. Including the 21 v-folders, the total number of objects that can be stored is 22 x 1800, which is 39,600 objects. But only 1800 objects can be in main memory at any given time.

Being able to assign a scanlist number to each individual object means you can create a single scanlist with your favorite conventional analog and digital frequencies, along with any selected TGIDs from analog and digital trunked systems. Just think of the possibilities!
