By Scanning, you can monitor channels and codes for transmissions and lock in on the one that interests you.
More importantly, you can find someone in your group who has accidentally changed channels and is talking
during your scan.
To start scanning, briefly press and release the Scan/Monitor button. If you activate scan while your code is set
to 0, then the radio will check for activity on each channel regardless of the code in use on that channel. If you
activate scan while your code is set on 1 to 38, then the radio will check for activity on each channel, but only for
the code last set for that channel. When radio detects channel activity, it stops on that channel and displays it.
While the radio is scanning, the Scan Icon will flash. When activity is detected on a channel, the radio will stop
scanning and you will hear whatever transmissions are detected. The Scan Icon will stop flashing. If you want to
respond to the transmission, just press the Push-To-Talk button within 5 seconds and you can respond. If you
activated scan when your code was set to 0, scan detects activity on a channel, and you press the Push-To-
Talk button to respond, then the other person may not be able to hear your call since you will be transmitting with
a code of 0.
To stop scanning, briefly press and release the Scan/Monitor button.
If scan stops on a channel that you don't want to listen to, press either the Scroll
or + buttons to resume
scanning for the next active channel.
