When having the radio programmed indicate to the programmer which channels you would like to have in a specific scan group. They an at that time set up a particular group for you.

Possible to scan all channels on a fr60


The FR60 does not have a scan function/feature

Would like to scan programmed channels


The person who programmed your radio decided if and how the channel scanning would function, and whether or not the person using the radio would be able to program a scan list, and if so, which switches or buttons to use. It was all determined using computer software and by connecting the computer to the radio. Maybe you have a 3-position switch. Maybe by putting the switch in a certain position, you can program the scan list yourself. Maybe when the switch is in the right position, then pressing a side button turns on a green light to indicate that you've just added that channel to your scan list. Pressing the same side button again turns off the green light to indicate that you've just removed that particular channel from the scan list. Do this for all 16 channels, then put the 3-position switch into the scan-on position. Instead of a 3-position switch, the person who programmed your radio may have decided that the 2-position concentric switch would be used for programming your scan list. If you're lucky, then your radio has an LCD display. If so, then select PROG and look for a blinking square symbol to tell you when to program your scan list and look for a letter Z with an arrow on it to tell you that your radio is scanning. On the other hand, the person who programmed your radio with a computer may have decided that you did not need to have and of these options enabled.

Trying to get an MTS 2000 FLASHPORT to ride a primary channel and scan another channel


Program the scan list in the codeplug. This is a feature that must be programmed into the radio via the dealer programming software. By using the software the dealer will program scanning capabilities and then assign a button on the control head to turn scanning on and off. Every radio can have different features and functions programmed into the radio. If by pressing buttons on the face a "Z" like symbol apears, you've found your scan on/off button.

How do i unlock my two way so i can scan and pick channels


The scan function on an XTN is not to be a scanner, but to scan between channels you have programmed into the radio. The scan feature is only available on the 2600 series. You can manually go to each channel and look for or listen for channel activity. Start with channel 1, when someone else is talking, there is a "busy" indication on the LCD on the radio. You can listen in by pressing the Monitor button. If you are using the factory defaults, you may hear someone without pressing the Monitor button.

CP 200 LED shows it is in scan mode, but does not ...


On the CP200 radio the scan feature must be programmed into one of the side buttons of the radio, plus the channels must be select to be in the scan list. Your radio would need to be reprogrammed to scan the channels you want to scan.

Programming requires a RIB (radio interface box), cable, and Motorola proprietary software. Your local Motorola dealer should have a subscription to this software and be able to program the radio to scan.

Best regards.

How to set channels to scan on motorola ht 1000


On the HT1000, there is an A, B, C toggle switch just under the On/OFF/Volume control knob.

When set to A, the radio is IN the scan mode.

When set to B it is NOT in the scan mode.

When switched to C, it is in the scan program mode. There is a green button on the left side above the PTT switch. When you set it to C, you switch the CHANNEL SELECT knob to the desired freq you want to add to the scan list. When there, you push the green button. ONE push gives you a red indicator light on the top of the radio. A 2nd push gives you a GREEN light displayed. A 3rd push gives you NOTHING lit up.

The 1st push (RED light) means you have selected THIS freq as your PRIORITY channel of your scan list when scanning.

The 2nd push (GREEN light) means it is just IN the list, not as a priority channel.

NO light means it is NOT entered into the scan list.

Once you have your list set up, simply flip the A,B,C switch back up to A and you're scanning what you selected.

HOWEVER All of the above is dependent on whether or not the ORIGINAL setup programming from the factory set the radio up for these features to work. If it WASN'T set up that way, you'll have to have it reprogrammed to activate the buttons and the toggle switch for those features to work.

Motorola AXU4100 talkaround mode


One of your programmable buttons, A, B, C or D, should be programmed for the TalkAround feature.

The options are:
Nuisance Channel Delete
PL/DPL enable (on/off)
High/Low Power
Volume Set
Scan
TalkAround

The buttons can be programmed for 2 features, both a long and a short press setting.

HT 1000 Set Scan mode


First, your radio must have one of the side buttons programmed to be scan on/off. You will need to experiment while one or more of the channels is active and press the side button to see if it puts you in scan mode.

If it is, most likely a short press turns on scan, and a long press would be nuisance channel delete. This feature will temporarily eliminate a channel out of your scan list for the time your have your radio turned on. Once you shut the unit off and turn it back on, it would return to the original setting.

The only way to have a button programmed for scan/nuisance channel delete, is to us Motorola propritary software available to dealers and certain businesses and governement agencies. If you are needing to turn on scan or change a scan list, you would need to have the radio reprogrammed. This typically will cost between $25 and $40 at more dealerships.

How do I set a channel to scan


Take your radio to your local Motorola dealer for reprogramming. Usually the capacity of a scan zone is 16 channels. I am not certain on this radio without doing some research. Your local dealer will be able to help.
