- Excellent information --- I missed the "long press hold" completely. Now I
use if frequently..

Since one can assign more than one system or site to a particular SQK,
it may be worth noting that a long press of the "Hold" key results in a
System Hold which will cause the scanner to remain on a single system
or, in the case of a trunked system, a single site rather than a single
SQK. The display will show "HOLD" flashing to indicate that it's a
System Hold rather than a Scan Hold (single channel). A second long
press of the "Hold" key will release the System Hold.
If you press the Function key while in System Hold, you can use the
Scroll Knob to change the system or site on which you're holding.
