You may want to hide some memories from opera-
tion, to simplify selection of others. To mask a displayed
memory, while "MEM" is displayed, press and hold in
M ] for ½ second until the double beep sounds.
But be careful: if you do this instead while "M TUNE" is
displayed - that is, after retuning the memory, the re-
tuned data will overwrite the original memory data, but
it will not be masked. So, if you have re-tuned the
memory and don't want to save the changes, cancel
them first by pressing [ VFO ( MEM )] once, and then hold
M ] for ½ second. No frequency digits appear for
masked memories - just the two decimal points remain.
Masked memories are also skipped during scan-
ning. If you don't overwrite a masked memory, you can
unmask it simply by repeating the same procedure you
used to mask it.
There are three choices that determine how scan-
ning will respond when activity is detected. Scan re-
sume operation is configured by recalling menu selec-
tion 2-1, and choosing the desired mode. Below is an
outline of each scan resume mode and how it oper-
Carrier Stop (default) - With the squelch closed,
scanning pauses on signal activity, then resumes soon
after the carrier disappears. With the squelch open,
scanning will not continue unless the receiver is qui-
eted again (SQL control).
Carrier Timed Stop - With the squelch closed,
scanning pauses on activity, then resumes automati-
cally after a preset duration (5 seconds by default),
whether signal activity remains or not (time- delay re-
Carrier Timed Slow - With the squelch closed,
scanning slows down (but doesn't stop) for a preset
duration (5 seconds by default), when activity is de-
For the Timed Stop and Timed Slow modes, the
pause duration can be set between 1 and 10 seconds
with menu selection 2-7 , or the scan pause (resume)
feature can be disabled completely using menu selec-
tion 2-0. If disabled, scanning will not stop for any ac-
After programming many memories, you may have
tagged specific ones to be skipped during scanning.
Should you later change your mind and want to scan
all of them again, you don't have to go back and re-
enable each tagged one (there's an easier way!).
Recall menu selection 2-6 and change the "Scan All"
setting from off to on. The memory tags are still re-
tained, but ignored when this setting is turned on. To
return to selective scanning, simply change the setting
