      Hey there! A million Thank You’s!!

      I held down the hold button until it beeped and my “Main” and “Main2” came back! Seems I have most stuff under Main2 – my individual freq’s and my trunked group – at least that’s what it looks like now when it’s scanning - so not sure what’s under my “Main” – but that’s okay..

      Now – only problem is it’s still scanning “Atlanta” – and I don’t want to be doing that – I don’t live there – somehow I programmed/turned it “on” while trying to turn back on my groups. If anyone can tell me how to turn that off – is it a lockout? – It would be much appreciated. It’s scans by it really fast – since nothing stops – as I’m not near there – it might be hard and it’s not the end of the world. At least I have my own groups back.

      Thanks to all of you so much.. Re the digital – I assume the “system” you’re wanting to scan has to be digital, is that correct?

      Thanks again - Maggie

      The Uniden 346XT will NOT do digital, its analog only, its brother the 396XT does digital....Also, if you see the "hold" flashing on the upper left of readout u may be stuck in that system...Hold the "HOLD" button down for a beep and u will get out of it...If u as mentioned hold down the "HOLD" button for a beep and your holding on a system then as its scanning it press Func + the # of the "Group" u want to add or subtract and it will work that way....

I don’t know how to “back” out of anything â€" but â€" in the midst of that â€" now my scanner isn’t scanning either of “my” groups, it’s scanning “Atlanta” and I can’t make it go back to mine..

UGH! I hate this scanner! But â€" 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 â€" so no rush â€" but I would like to get this back to my two groups..

          Thanks Joe.. I can’t even catch Atlanta on hold – it goes by so fast.. it will be fine this way.. but I’ll keep your message for the future.. So L/O once is like “back” ?
          There’s more I’d like to do with this scanner – but for now – I think I’ll just leave well enough alone!
          Thank you all for being there for me.. This scanner works great – but the setup stuff just kicks my butt!
          Anyway – I’m back “up and running” so thank you!
