8664What to do with my BCD396XT when I get a BCK436HP
- Dec 24, 2013I am in a little of a quandary. I have bled, like many folks, on my learning curve for the 396XT. I do not, however, wish to toss it.I generally, in life, would reduce the price of it to $200 bucks and just move on and lick my wounds.In the case of the 396XT, I hate to do it. Trust me , it is not for the bucks. It is just that the radio is such a treasure trove of unexplored uses. I am thinking of dedicating the 396 XT to many, specific, alternate uses. I am asking via this post for ideas.One of the things that I have noticed is that new users to the radio, including myself, were totally overwhelmed at first. I still am quite honestly. I live with the manual on my IPOD to refer to.What I want to try and put together is a series of cheat sheets of VERY EASY to use cheat sheets that even a novice could use.Here is an example:
Scenario: I have a conventional system called air. I have several frequencies but assume there are more. I want to store them automatically in the Air system group. I also want the scanner to compare to the frequencies already found and if there, not to duplicate them.
Scenario: I want to easily search a pre programmed range of frequencies (3) and have them available to easily switch between. I am going on a trip and want to listen to CB, Ham, and FRS but do not want to tie up my main scanner with crap.
Scenario: I want to easily re assign my 3 pre-programmed ranges in the scenario above. How do I do this?
In the last scenario the cheat sheet would say:
1) press MENU
2) Press Search For
3) Press Set Search Key
4) Select the Key then Select the Service you want
Bottom line, I would use the scanner for certain specific uses as a dedicated machine.
Question... What would be a good way to organize this? and suggested uses?
