293Re: [BC346XT] 70yr old dummy needs a little HELP
- Apr 3, 2010Thanks for the replys. Got news for ya. This 346 has BANKS. Bank-1 Hwy Patrol, Bank-2 Sheriff, Bank-3 EMS, Bank-4 Fire etc all the way thru Bank-8 Palmetto 800. Thats the way it reads in the Files using FreeScan. They said the PRO106 didnt have banks. Mines got 21. Now back to question. Thanks MCH, but I knew that stuff in 1976. Read all the RR Wiki and PDF files for 346. Just missed the way to turn on or off banks. Program running good so I'll just give it back to Grover and let him figure it out. Best Regards, Larry

Think of the System Quick Keys like assignable 'bank enable' buttons on
your older scanners. If you want only single-digit ones, you can do that
and have 10 to turn on or off.
Systems are like your old banks, only you can put several in one 'bank'.
Groups are like classes of users. My Groups often consist of Police,
Fire, EMS, EMA, Public Works, Business, Ham, Air, Railroad, Etc.
Channels are just like your older scanners, only you have to create them
- they do not 'pre-exist in blank format'.
Channels must exist in a Group. Groups must exist in a System (like
folders on your hard drive).
Once you know what Systems, Groups, and Channels are, and their
relationship, you should have a better understanding of the scanner.
> Friend brought 346 to me for help because I've got all my older BC's and newer GRE PGM'ed w/ software. Does anyone have a custom cheat sheet in WORD that they use and would share???. I built several systems with software but failed to grasp all the new terms. Need shortcut to turn on or off banks. Need better understanding of Quick Keys. Pending any replys. Larry
