PRO-2030 80-Channel Direct Entry Programmable Scanner
(200-0407)    Understanding Channel-Storage Banks     Faxback Doc. # 46981

You can store up to 90 frequencies into your scanner's memory.  You store
each frequency into either a permanent memory, called a channel, or a
temporary memory, called a monitor.  There are 80 available channels and
10 available monitor memories.


To make it easier to identify and select the channels you want to listen
to, channels are divided into 8 channel-storage banks of 10 channels each.
Use each channel-storage bank to group frequencies, such as the police
department, fire department, ambulance services, or aircraft (See "A Guide
to Action Bands" in Faxback Doc. # 17653).

For example, the police might use four frequencies, one for each side of
town.  You can program the police frequencies starting with Channel 1
(Bank 1) and program the fire department on Channel 11 (Bank 2).  When you
want to listen to only police calls, you can turn off the other banks.


The scanner also has 10 monitor memories.  You use these memories to
temporarily store frequencies while you decide whether to save them in
channels.  This is handy for quickly storing an active frequency when you
search through an entire band.  You can manually select these memories,
but you cannot scan them.  See "Searching for and Temporarily Storing
Active Frequencies" in Faxback Doc. # 45537.

When you are in the monitor mode, one of the memory numbers (1-10) appears
to the right of the MON indicator.  The number indicates the current
monitor memory.
