I was wondering if there was a way to only listen to Group ID's you wanted and lockout out everything else? I now you can hit L/O and lockout a few channels up to 100 using ScanCat, but is there a way to lockout talk groups without having to sit there all day and hit the L/O button? Thanks

Did you program it by computer? Are you running it in OPEN mode? (Meaning it's just recieving every active talkgroup) or CLOSED mode (Meaning you only hear what you programmed)?

The three software packages that are out there now for the Pro-164 are WIN97 available at Software for RadioShack PRO-series (PRO-92, 93, 95, 96, 97, 99, 163, 164, 106, 197) and GRE PSR-series (PSR-500, 600, 300, 400, 310, 410) scanners, and PSREdit300 available at PSREdit - Configuration Editors for the new GRE line of scanners and ARC300 at Butel Software

All three offer free trials, and will allow you to program it to hear only what you want.

If you're using software, look under "Settings" in the given "Bank" and check "Closed Mode"

when your scanner is scanning and you have a screen with 0123456789
+++++++++
for example you only want to hear bank 3 you hit these buttons 012456789 and bank 3 will be remaining

Closed mode worked like a charm. I really appreciate the help.
