    Howdy,

    I am NOT yelling! Have to write in bold so that I can read what I am saying!:rolleyes:

    I have programed this radio with about 10 frequencies. No problem. However, there are a few ratchet jaws on some of these repeaters that go on and on and on...know what I mean?

    I am looking for a quick and easy way to bypass these and scan the rest of the stations by way of the microphone buttons. Then after a while add these stations back onto the scan pattern.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, in advance, for any help.

    IIRC, you can set your primary (the ones without the rag chew crew) memory channels to priority and just scan those channels. The regular scan will include all memory channels.

    GREAT idea. Not like I'm going to run out of memory channels.

    THANKS!

    My suggestion would be to check out the manual, page 32, where it describes "Skip Channel Setting".

    Another option is to use the Memory Bank feature described on page 23, and then scan different banks depending which one you are more interested in, at that moment.

    It's all in the manual, easily found here:

    Park on a quiet frequency?

    Mine runs very hot on high power (long QSO’s), so I’ve been running 25 watts. Is this a common issue? It’s used as a base rig with the mount on the bottom.
