Programming Search Keys

  1. Open the Search for... menu.
  2. Select Set Search Key, then select the search key you want to program.
  3. Select the search range you want to assign to this Search Key. Choose one of the pre-programmed service search ranges, one of the 10 custom search ranges, a Tone-Out search, or a Band Scope search.

Using Search Keys

To start the search assigned to a Search Key, FUNCTION + tap that Search Key. For example, to start the search assigned to Search Key 2, FUNCTION + tap 2 .

(You can't use the Search Keys when the scanner is in Scan mode or GPS mode.)

If the Search Key you select starts a Tone-Out search, the scanner switches to Tone-Out mode and searches the most-recently-used Tone-Out channel (out of the 10 available). If you want to search a different Tone-Out channel, use the SELECT-VOLUME-SQUELCH knob on handheld models or the SCROLL / FUNCTION knob on mobile models to select the Tone-Out channel you want to use.
