your winter systems are assigned Start-Up Key 1 and your summer systems
are assigned Start-Up Key 2. You can upload them both at the same time.
Using them is simple. When you want to unlock your summer systems, hit 2
when the scanner is powering up. When you want to unlock your winter
systems, hit 1 when the scanner is powering up.
Any system not assigned a Start-Up Key will not be affected by the
reconfiguration, so you could have a THIRD system with your common
channels and assign that no Start-Up Key, and remove them from both of
the other systems.
Basically, the Start-Up keys are mass-lockout/unlock commands. Only the
systems assigned to the Start-Up key pressed will be unlocked, while ALL
OTHER systems assigned different Start-Up Keys will be locked out.
Funny how much easier it is to explain in the morning as opposed to 1 AM
at night. ;->
I'm assuming you have a large number of Systems that you want changed by
the Summer/Winter configuration. If not, it might be easier to use a
System Quick Key to enable or disable them. That way, you could easily
enable both of them if you like.
