      Thanks for your help and encouragement. I'm making a little headway, but
      still can't get any GQK to toggle, tried holding the F, tapping the F,
      watching for the flashing F screen icon, watching for the solid F screen
      icon. It says to select the system that the group resides in, press the F
      button and the group number using the keypad but by the time I do that it
      has scanned to a different system so it's too late. Tried using the Hold
      key but that didn't work either.

      I'll keep chipping away at it. Trying to meet with a local next week and I
      think that will help a lot.

          When you tap F, the "F" stays active for a few seconds. If you missed the target system, after tapping F scroll back to the system, then press the group quick key you want to toggle.

              when you scroll back to the system it will stay on the system until the
              time-out-timer (a few seconds) expires...giving you time to then press the

                  I'm starting to wonder if the problem is elsewhere, no matter how fast I push F + GQK, only the System Quick Keys toggle back and forth. I just uploaded a local guys Highway Patrol programming and although the scanner looks like it is scanning and the SQK work perfectly, there is no sound, no calls coming through. In service searches, the speaker and sound work fine, but scanning on the programming brings nothing. The programming came from a BCT15X but I thought these were kind of 'sister' scanners and compatible.
                  I have another 346 with the same problem, scanning great - no sounds/calls. I've tried no squelch and all squelch and in between. Volume is up. The Group line just has hyphens not x or # toggle. Does that mean there are no groups? I'll print out the Freescan, Detailed report and see if that explains it. The frustrating thing is that real scanner guys would pick mine up, find the problem in two seconds, chuckle, and fix it and then explain "you needed to have this off/on".
                  Thanks for everybody's help.
                  Any idea what is wrong?

                      F and the # are two distinct key presses. Don't try to press them at the same
                      time. Once you hit F, you have about 3 seconds to hit the GQK#.

                      If you need to scroll to the system after hitting F, the time is extended so you
                      have about 3 seconds from the instant you stopped scrolling to hit the GQK#.

                      When you are on the system, the bottom row (starts GRP:) indicates the GQK
                      status for that system. Numerals mean enabled, Stars (*) mean disabled, and
                      dashes mean not assigned.

                      I'm starting to wonder if the problem is elsewhere, no matter how fast I push F
                      + GQK, only the System Quick Keys toggle back and forth. I just uploaded a
                      local guys Highway Patrol programming and although the scanner looks like it is
                      scanning and the SQK work perfectly, there is no sound, no calls coming through.
                      In service searches, the speaker and sound work fine, but scanning on the
                      programming brings nothing. The programming came from a BCT15X but I thought
                      these were kind of 'sister' scanners and compatible.
                      I have another 346 with the same problem, scanning great - no sounds/calls.
                      I've tried no squelch and all squelch and in between. Volume is up. The Group
                      line just has hyphens not x or # toggle. Does that mean there are no groups?
                      I'll print out the Freescan, Detailed report and see if that explains it. The
                      frustrating thing is that real scanner guys would pick mine up, find the problem
                      in two seconds, chuckle, and fix it and then explain "you needed to have this
                      off/on".
                      Thanks for everybody's help.
                      Any idea what is wrong?

                        Thanks Paul, your last statement gave me an idea to check the groups for * or # or - . Sure enough, all four systems had nothing but dashes. I assume you HAVE to have Groups. Perhaps the group info from the BCT15X didn't upload to the 346. I'll print out the freescan file and see if I can get the groups and then manipulate in the groups. Baby steps - thanks everybody.

                          Darn. I went into Freescan and changed the Group Quick key box to the same as the system QK. I.E: The group within system 1 was changed from a < . > in the GQK drop down box to GQK 1. Did all the systems that way and uploaded it to the scanner and the GQK were there AND I could toggle them on and off! But it didn't make any difference, scanner display shows it's scanning and looking for calls but it doesn't stop on any and no sound comes out. Back to the drawing board. Thanks for reading.

I assume you HAVE to have Groups. Perhaps the group info from the BCT15X didn't upload to the 346. I'll print out the freescan file and see if I can get the groups and then manipulate in the groups. Baby steps - thanks everybody.

                            I finally got mine to work pretty well. What I did was get rid of everything and start from scratch. Then I did just one system and started playing with it.

                              I finally got mine to work pretty well. What I did was get rid of everything and start from scratch. Then I did just one system and started playing with it. I found if you try one new thing at a time it helps figure it out. I also used the pc with Freescan in the virtual mode makes it easier to see and understand whats going on. I gradually added newer systems. Also, helps to layout a plan on paper so you remember what u set each QK to. Keep us posted on your progress. I will also post if I find any ah ha ... stuff.

I.E: The group within system 1 was changed from a < . > in the GQK drop down box to GQK 1. Did all the systems that way and uploaded it to the scanner and the GQK were there AND I could toggle them on and off! But it didn't make any difference, scanner display shows it's scanning and looking for calls but it doesn't stop on any and no sound comes out. Back to the drawing board. Thanks for reading.

I assume you HAVE to have Groups. Perhaps the group info from the BCT15X didn't upload to the 346. I'll print out the freescan file and see if I can get the groups and then manipulate in the groups. Baby steps - thanks everybody.

                                Well, a GQK is not even necessary in the condition you describe (if there is no
                                GQK, the channel group will always be enabled). The other thing to check is to
                                be sure the channel group is not locked out (lock out is separate from GQK
                                enable/disable). To be scanned, a channel must be in a channel group that is
                                both unlocked and (if a GQK is assigned) has its GQK enabled.

                                Darn. I went into Freescan and changed the Group Quick key box to the same as
                                the system QK. I.E: The group within system 1 was changed from a < . > in the
                                GQK drop down box to GQK 1. Did all the systems that way and uploaded it to the
                                scanner and the GQK were there AND I could toggle them on and off! But it didn't
                                make any difference, scanner display shows it's scanning and looking for calls
                                but it doesn't stop on any and no sound comes out. Back to the drawing board.
                                Thanks for reading.

                                      Well, a GQK is not even necessary in the condition you describe (if there is no GQK, the channel group will always be enabled). The other thing to check is to be sure the channel group is not locked out (lock out is separate from GQK enable/disable). To be scanned, a channel must be in a channel group that is both unlocked and (if a GQK is assigned) has its GQK enabled.

                                        I finally got mine to work pretty well. What I did was get rid of
                                        everything and start from scratch. Then I did just one system and started
                                        playing with it. I found if you try one new thing at a time it helps figure
                                        it out. I also used the pc with Freescan in the virtual mode makes it
                                        easier to see and understand whats going on. I gradually added newer
                                        systems. Also, helps to layout a plan on paper so you remember what u set
                                        each QK to. Keep us posted on your progress. I will also post if I find
                                        any ah ha ... stuff.

                                          OK, I uploaded the file into 'Files'. Great idea, thanks. It's the "UHP problem" file. The scanner looks like it's doing it's thing, just like my other 346 but I can't hear anything. Can anybody see anything wrong with the file? I got the FreeSCAN file from somebody that has a BCT-15X. I wonder if that's the problem? Thanks for any help.

I.E: The group within system 1 was changed from a < . > in the GQK drop down box to GQK 1. Did all the systems that way and uploaded it to the scanner and the GQK were there AND I could toggle them on and off! But it didn't make any difference, scanner display shows it's scanning and looking for calls but it doesn't stop on any and no sound comes out. Back to the drawing board. Thanks for reading.

I assume you HAVE to have Groups. Perhaps the group info from the BCT15X didn't upload to the 346. I'll print out the freescan file and see if I can get the groups and then manipulate in the groups. Baby steps - thanks everybody.

                                              It looks like there are a lot of sites in Salt Lake county that you
                                              don't have loaded in your scanner. The most notable I see is "Salt Lake
                                              Simulcast" which is likely a big one to be missing.

                                              Do you know if you can hear Nelson Peak from your house?

                                              Have you tried ID SEARCH? You don't have many talkgroups in the scan
                                              list, so you won't hear much activity compared to scanning all of them.
                                              Using ID SEARCH for the time being would help test your setup.

                                              Which one of the four trunked systems is one you are most interested in?
                                              It's easier to troubleshoot one at a time rather than all at once.

The scanner looks like it's doing it's thing, just like my other 346 but I can't hear anything. Can anybody see anything wrong with the file? I got the FreeSCAN file from somebody that has a BCT-15X. I wonder if that's the problem? Thanks for any help.

I.E: The group within system 1 was changed from a < . > in the GQK drop down box to GQK 1. Did all the systems that way and uploaded it to the scanner and the GQK were there AND I could toggle them on and off! But it didn't make any difference, scanner display shows it's scanning and looking for calls but it doesn't stop on any and no sound comes out. Back to the drawing board. Thanks for reading.

I assume you HAVE to have Groups. Perhaps the group info from the BCT15X didn't upload to the 346. I'll print out the freescan file and see if I can get the groups and then manipulate in the groups. Baby steps - thanks everybody.
