- Thanks for the Quick Save instructions. So, I've entered several frequencies and did Quick Save. Today, I want to scan these frequencies, but, I can't locate what I saved. Do these frequencies get deleted when the 346 is turned OFF?

- I finally gave up after owning it for 6 months and found someone who did know, farmed it out and paid him to program it with my standard load and a bunch of extras. Works great now. I bought mine on clearance and it turned out not to have all the accessories like the programming cable.Bought a second one and had the same guy program it as well. Glad I did, it was worth the money and both units work very well.
