Set Frequencies

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

This menu lets you create frequencies and edit existing ones. All existing frequencies are listed in the order they were created: select the frequency you want to edit, or select New Frequency to create a new one. When creating frequencies, keep the following rules in mind:

Edit Frequency

Enter a valid frequency for this band. If the frequency is invalid or if it already exists, the scanner sounds an error tone and prompts you to re-enter the frequency.

Set Lockout

Determines whether the frequency will be scanned. If you lock out the frequency and the frequency is used as the control channel, the system will not be scanned.

Delete Frequency

Delete this frequency or channel and all associated settings.

New Frequency

Create a new frequency.
