TRBO Scan mode PL problem

Postby KC9UZB » Wed Dec 17, 2008 7:00 am

Ok. Probably I'm missing something obvious here, but when in scan mode, my DP3400 (the non display model handheld) ignores my PL on certain channels and works in CSQ mode instead.

Annoying.

I've had a look in scan, general settings and also on the channel page (I still want to call it conventional personality!). But no joy.

Any clues?

Eh, I found it. It's under the scan options IIRC. Although since posting the original thread, I found out it's quite useful to have no PL when scanning when in a different area - the freqs are still valid, and it lets you hear traffic you would otherwise need to program a channel for.

I gotta say, TRBO CPS is a lot sexier than Astro CPS, and a lot more user friendly. Still - three actions to enable scan. I suppose it's logical though - you have to choose which channels you want in the scan. Personally I'd prefer it done differently, but... w/e.

I do like the new 'customer handout' page you can print.

:D

TRBO CPS does not let you recycle channel names, which is pretty gay IMHO.

Yeah I just found that out.

I set Ch1 to 433.700 and Ch16 to 433.700, but had to name them 1 + 2.

Ho hum.

Still, can't complain. :D Nice radios.

Although I have not yet had the pleasure of holding one, they can't be any worse than Warises.

Well the "ock" was expected, just figured you'd use a different letter in front :baby:

you are suggesting the laws of physics have been broken with this post

shut up

I was talking about build quality rather than audio quality :)

I use my DP3400 in analogue mode :baby:
