In an attempt to unlock one group in my 996XT and lock another (in the same system), I accidentally managed to lock them both out. Now, the scanner won't allow me to use the quick key to activate it scanning at all. It's as if it's not even programmed into my scanner. In all my 35 years of using Bearcat scanners, I don't remember ever doing this?

Anyone know how I can reverse this short of deleted that system and reprogramming it into the scanner?

THX,

To toggle Group quick keys on or off in another system press and hold
to 'lock' Function mode. Scroll to the (enabled) system that contains the (enabled) group you want to turn on/off then press the corresponding number key(s). Press
twice to 'unlock' Function mode and resume.





Locking/Unlocking Groups Contents
Remember, unlocking or locking out a group is not the same thing as enabling/disabling it (turning the quick key on or off).
To lock out or unlock a group in scan mode press and hold
to 'lock' function mode.
Rotate the scroll control until the system that has the group you want to lock or unlock appears. PressMENU.
Scroll to 'Edit Group' and press E/
.
At 'Select Group' scroll to the group you want to lock or unlock and press E/
.
Scroll to 'Set Lockout' and press E/
.
Scroll to 'Unlocked', 'Temporary L/O', or 'Lockout' and press E/
.
Press Scan/Srch or L/O to exit.
Note: 'Temporary Lockout' means unlocked the next time you cycle power the group will be unlocked. Or, use MENU to drill down to the group options and lock/unlock it there. See 'Edit Group Options'.
