Thanks to everyone who have been answering my beginner questions. one more, as I try to get my arms around the Qkeys, Group Keys, etc. Two questions tied to my attached ARC-XT screenshot of my programming. Using a BCD-396-XT

******

Do the 3 yellow highlighted areas represent the same thing?

Are the Qkey's (boxed in red) OK as is, or do they need to run 1-12 rather than starting
back at Q1 for each new group.

Is there anything that stands out as wrong.... Trying to break it down into counties, so I can toggle the home counties off when I am at work and vice versa. and toggle off weather, unless I need it, because the scanner hangs on the national weather service.

Thanks!

Jim

You have 3 systems with SQK=1. Nothing wrong, but this will turn on/off all 3 at once. GQK's can only be 0-9 in any system, so you have that done correctly. If you want to use all of the assigned GQK's, you need to enable them with the check marks, so looks like you have done that correctly as well. Only thing I can't tell is whether you have assigned SQK to sites under the trunking systems.
