Priority Scan

To determine whether the information on this page applies to your scanner, see the tags at the bottom of the page.

This section applies to conventional system priority mode only. For priority on trunked systems, turn on the Priority ID system option and set the desired channels as priority channels.

Priority mode has two "sub modes" (similar to Close Call and Close Call Only):

Use the Priority Scan menu to control how Priority mode operates:

Set Priority

Choose one of the following priority scan methods:

Set Interval

Decide how many seconds you want the scanner to wait between priority channel checks. Enter a number between 1 and 10 seconds. (This setting is used in normal priority scans only.)


Decide how many priority channels the scanner checks during each interval. Enter a number between 1 and 100. If the number of priority channels is greater than the number you enter here, the scanner divides them into groups. For example, if you set the maximum channels to 20 and there are 100 priority channels, the scanner checks those 100 channels in groups of 20 and takes a total of 5 intervals to complete the priority scan.
