    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

      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.

      > Thanks Joe. Did you mean site vs. system? All the scroll knob does is
      change direction of scan on a single site system. If I go to a multi-site
      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.

      think EVERYTHING would be keypad controlled except volume and squelch, but
      there I go thinking again.
