- Sep 28, 2012yes, that sticky function is giving me fits. when i want to disable groups
i find myself either hitting f+1, f+2, f+3 or holding down the func key and
hitting 1, then 2, then 3 instead of briefly pressing function, then
i did somewhat better on my first commute to work this evening. i had
system 1 (home) and system 2 (work) enabled to start, then had no trouble
dismissing sys1 when i drove out of the home jurisdiction. oh, and i had
close call pri enabled and, since our discussion the other night, the
expected behavior was that a close call hit would store to the temp 10
memories and would not scan those memories.
but i think i had some problem with that function key when i went to
activate some groups under my work system. all of a sudden i got a blaring
BHLAAAAAT! control channel out of the speaker and when i was able to take a
look, the radio was scanning the close call 'system'. i thought that this
system would only get created if you were doing the close call only mode or
cc 'search and store', but evidently if you have the store memories
allocated every close call mode will use them. well, unless i did something
strange when i was fumbling with the function key to get those groups
in any case, showing i can learn something after all (g), i did a
func+l/o+l/o when the close call system came up and got rid of it and was
able to finish my commute. i'll investigate those setting more this
evening. what i need to do is to devote a solid hour to just doing close
call work using one of my transmitters and making my own notes as to how it
works in the various modes before i try to troubleshoot on the fly out in
60mph bumper-to-bumper traffic.
