• 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:

Say I'm scanning about 20 systems on the BCD996T and want to reduce that to 1 or 2. Is there a way to turn off all systems at the same time? Then turn on the 1 or 2 I want. Or do I have to turn them off one by one?

Thanks,

Moose

There is no way I am aware of to turn off all active SQK's at the same time.

If you want to pause on a single system for a while, press and hold the FUNC knob for a couple of seconds (this latches the "FUNC" function and holds on the current system). There is no way to hold on more than one system using this method.

If there are systems you regularly want to isolate from the rest of scanning, you could create versions of them assigned to startup key 1 and put the rest of the systems (including duplicates of those) on startup key 2. Power up while holding down "1" and all systems except for those would be locked out. Power up while holding down "2" and those two will be locked out and the rest will be unlocked.

Oh well...

Thanks for the info. Was hoping for a simple solution, a global lockout, so to speak.
