      Thanks guys – well – your thoughts got me close – but in the end I am a little bit more messed (!)
      I tried to push the F+2 when it was scanning – and it does nothing.. so I did “hold” and then did the F+2 and it wanted me to enter a group (or ID or something) named 2. I don’t know how to “back” out of anything – but – in the midst of that – now my scanner isn’t scanning either of “my” groups, it’s scanning “Atlanta” and I can’t make it go back to mine.. BUT ALSO – this is reminding me that I must have been “highlighted” on one of my groups and then pushed down on the “action” knob on top – and somehow that’s how I turned my other group/main off – but meantime, now I’m stuck in Atlanta and I can’t even get back to my groups.. UGH! I hate this scanner! But – I desperately await your help.. Luckily, I bought a used 245 when the speaker went on my old one.. so at least I have that one working – so no rush – but I would like to get this back to my two groups.. I see what you folks write and do all this cool stuff – but I’ll be happy to just have my two groups working.. so – under MAIN (or MAIN2) is my stuff – and it was saying “Group 1” when it was scanning before.

      Thank you so much.. sorry I’m such a dope!!

      Just pressing the buttons turns on/off Systems, not Groups. For Groups,
      you press the function button then the Group Quick Key number.

      That said, I think your suggestion will help him, as it's likely he is
      missing a System, not a Group.

      > Okay – I know – stupid questions.. I have two “sets” of things programmed into my scanner – and one is turned off and I can’t figure out how to turn it back on. So I show “group 1” on the group (a trunked band) that’s scanning.. But I have a bunch of “un-trunked” frequencies programmed and I’m not getting them.. I see a “MAIN” and a “MAIN2” – not sure if it’s one of those.. I see an MSP – not sure if that’s mine (Mass State Police) – or if that’s a “default.”
