RE: [BCD396XT] Re: Scanning specific systems.
- Do you have the system locked out or have a quick key for the system locked
out? I had the same problem, but always found a way to make it work after
fiddling with the scanner a bit.

I had the same question also after just acquiring this scanner last week.
Thanks for the info.
However, I might be TOO new to make this intuitive yet.
I pushed FUNCTION then scrolled the top knob until I find the system I want.
Then what? When I pushed the scroll knob, it stops on the system, but
consistently tells me "nothing to scan" even though the system chosen has
groups activated at all times. What am I doing incorrectly?

When I said scroll to the System you want to hold, you use FUNC then the
scroll knob to change Systems.

system, the scroll still makes me go through all the talkgroups before it
goes to the next system. Is there a key combo so that I can scroll through
the systems only without all the talkgroups.
