Well darn, I guess someday when I'm really bored I'll try to find the manual and read it. Never really needed to read it because the scanner is so easy even a caveman can do it.Setting : Display Options

As long as you don't manually turn the display off it will remain on!
I still haven't read the manual. And that is for both the SDS 100 and the SDS 200. Don't let them get to you. Personally, I check out the menus on the radio and do it myself. Who needs a manual, I have bought brand new scanners that never came with a manual.Thanks for the kind words. Previous comments about reading the manual ha. I went over it quite a few times with no success. The forum did provide settings that got the display working the way I want. Forum worked; manual not so much. Love the features of the sds100 but sound quality not as clear as others. Have been “scanning” since crystals of the early 70’s but this was first time on forum. It’s a great help. Again. Thanks
