5754Re: [BCD396XT] System hold time
- Aug 30, 2011System hold time and system delay are two different things. I can tell you for sure that the system delay can only be set for the entire system you are scanning. I myself, in my own honest opinion, hate it. I would much rather set the delay for each channel, whether it is in a trunked or conventional system. The system hold time has some cool advantages once you learn them. I feel your pain with the learning curve. It took me months to even feel slightly comfortable using the scanner. It is a marvel of technology.

Just purchased my 396 and new to the group. Am trying to learn this radio AND the Illimois Starcom system at the same time. I used to think of myself as technically oriented, but these have my head spinning. I am plowing through it and getting it day by day.
My question pertains to hold time or delay. On the conventional systems, is there a way to adjust the delay or hold time for individual frequencies? I'm using ARC-XT and it looks like I can only set the delay for the whole system. In the past, I never set delay on repeater freqs, because there's a delay built into the systems, anyhow. I'd only set delay on simplex freqs.
I'll probably be back with more questions.
