Question about Uniden BCD996T Base Scanner
Uniden's quick key for system toggles the associated system (or systems, as more than one system can be assigned the same quick key) in and out of the scan.
The systems which have no quick key associated with them will remain in the scan unless you go into the menu and set each of those systems to be disabled from within the menu.
To your description above I would add that if you pressed the quick again, for the system you want, that system would be included back into the scan - each press will alternately exclude it and include it.
So - if you want to be able to exclude the other two systems from the scan by using quick key then set both of those to share a quick key, that key will then toggle those two systems out of the scan leaving enabled the system that you want to scan.
For example - three systems... air , fire , road. Say you wanted to be able to exclude air and road from the scan when you heard some fire action going on... set air system and road system to have same quick key (say '1') and fire system to have no quick key or a different quick key (say '0'). Now '1' will toggle air and road out of and into the scan on each successive press. So now when all three systems are getting scanned and you you want to shut out air and road, press '1' once... and they're excluded. press '1' again and they're included again (that's why i say quick keys 'toggle' the scan inclusion/exclusion).
If you see a message 'Nothing to Scan' ( or somesuch ) it means that you have excluded all systems from the scan - so just re-include one or more systems and the message will clear and you'll be back to scanning stuff.
I hope this makes sense the way i've described it.
I have a Uniden BCT15 myself. My suggestion is based on the way that the BCT15 works.. from memory and without the manual and rig to hand at this time.
Hope this helps anyway.
