• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi,

SDS 200;
Thanks to you all, I pretty much have it working, well. Thanks again.

I am not sure I am doing this correctly, or if there is a "better" way.

I have 9 QK's.

a. I'm on one of them, and the scanner is pretty much "locked" onto a conversation on a single freq.
If I want to go to the next conversation, on this same QK/freq., I have been just rotating the Function Knob.

Is this the "typical" way ? Better way ?

b. Now I want to go to the next or another QK.

If I press the QK number, and E, all that seems to happen is that the QK status goes from ON to OFF.

What's the best way of going to another QK (its Number shows next to FO, but not blinking) ?

Thanks,
Bob

You can press SYSTEM and within a few seconds (before the 2nd beep) turn the wheel and it will goto to next/prev system. The same applies if you highlight DEPT or CHANNEL. The only way to stay on or switch to a Favorite list is turn off the others I think

I should add if while scrolling through system in a favorite list when it gets to the last system it continues to the next fav list. If you are holding on a SYSTEM when you press SYSTEM then it will hold on the system you scroll to as long as you turn the wheel before the 2nd beep after pushing systemm
