1) Sometimes my radio will be parked on a channel for a while then start scanning on its own. Anyone else experiencing this?

2) Is it possible to change the scan or manual search order? While scanning or manually changing channels, the radio goes 1.1 > 2.1 > 3.1 then 1.2 > 2.2 > 3.2 instead of 1.1 > 1.2 > 1.3 > 2.1 > 2.2 > 2.3 -- even if a sub-bank is locked out, the radio jumps hundreds or thousands of channels to a bank or sub-bank Im not interested in. Incredibly annoying.

2) I agree completely. Basically, the FL and the System are transposed in the heirachy.
Whoever set it up like this has a weird work of working (Maybe they only have ONE FL!).
Doesn't seem to be any way to change this though. It would certainly need a firmware upgrade.

Agreed. Would like to see that fixed in firmware update.
It's enough of a quirk/headache to get me to QK the FLs only. Now, I make many FLs with very little in each one. Had to make a printout of what each QK referred to, but now I am super happy with the setup.
