How do I set a channel to scan

I have a MTS2000 used on a trunked system. When the unit is in scan mode 4 of the 16 channels scan. I need to add another channel to the scan mode. Can you help?

P.S. On the front of the radio below the display there are six (6) buttons. The top 3 buttons have a black dot on them. The bottom 3 have a left arrow on the left button, the middle button is "Home" and the right button has a right arrow.

Thanks, Jim

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.

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

MTS non trunking made into a trunking system


Trunking radios are controlled by logging on to a central control - for use unless you have a trunking network with repeaters set up (costs a lot of money) stick to the non trunking versions - they can be reprogrammed to your frequencies and are very useable. without connection to a trunking network the Trunk versions would be better used as a door stop as they are very limited for re-use

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.

How do you set the scanner to your local police or


First you need to know what frequencies are in use in your area. For a comprehensive database, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

To enter (program) a frequency for future scanning:
- Slide the MODE switch to Scanner
- Press the E (PGM) key. This will turn on the PGM indicator at the top right of the display.
- Press the UP or DOWN arrow (above the SCAN and HOLD keys) to advance to the desired channel, OR enter the channel number using the keypad.
- Press HOLD
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (e.g. 155.67).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- To continue programming, use the UP or down key to advance OR enter a channel number, press HOLD, and continue programming as above.

When you're finished programming, press HOLD or SCAN.

I hope this helps. I have a BC370CRS on my desk, and I found that the programming is fairly simple -- once I got used to it.

NOTE: The BC370CRS will NOT work with trunked or digital radio systems. If these are in use in your area you will need a different scanner to listen in.

I have a MTX8000 Handie-Talkie FM Radio It is a 16 channel radio


You're on scan mode but have no channel in scan list. You might have to go to scan PROGRAM mode and select the channel you want to scan then press a side button to put that channel in the scan list then will scan.

Pro 95 dual trunk tracking scanner just stays on channel 3 does not scan up to the other 10 channels


the manual at "http://support.radioshack.com/manuals/ome20-525.pdf" (if you don't have it)
says that you may be in manual mode OR that the channel at 3 might be a "trunk guide", that means that the channel is used to send out digital permissions to the system for each radio in the unit(s) to use a certain freq. when they transmit. good luck!

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.

Edacs frequencies


Are you getting talkgroup ID's? If not, you're probably monitoring the EDACS system in conventional mode rather than trunking. When the scanner hears those beeps, it's supposed to go back to monitoring the control channel if you're in either trunking mode (search or scan). This also happens if the CC isn't coming in very well. If you're not in trunking mode, read the manual to find out more about programming and monitoring trunked systems. If you are in trunking mode and receiving ID's, the unit is probably malfunctioning.
