Close CallTM RF Capture Technology - You can set the scanner so it detects and provides information about nearby radio transmissions.
Dynamically Allocated Channel Memory – Your scanner’s memory is organized so that it more closely matches how radio systems actually work, making it easier to program and use your scanner and determine how much memory you have used and how much you have left.
Preprogrammed Systems - Your scanner is preprogrammed with over 400 channels covering police, fire, and ambulance operations in the 25 most populated counties in the US, plus the most popular digital systems.
100 Quick Keys – You can set the scanner so you can quickly select systems and groups by using the keypad. This makes it easy to listen to or quickly lock out those systems or groups you don’t want to scan.
12 Service Searches - frequencies are preset in separate Public Safety, News, HAM Radio, Marine, Railroad, Air, CB Radio, FRS/GMRS, Racing, TV Broadcast, FM Broadcast, and Special searches, to make it easy to search and scan for specific transmissions.
Lockout – You can lock out any system, group, frequency, or channel while scanning. If you lock out a system or group, any channels belonging to that system or group are also locked out. You can lock out up to 200 frequencies. The scanner skips locked-out frequencies while using the Close Call feature or while searching.
CTCSS and DCS Squelch Modes – prevent interference from stations not using the mode you select.
Analog and Digital Audio AGC – Helps automatically balance the volume level between different radio systems.
Fire Tone-Out Standby – Lets you set the scanner to alert you if a two-tone sequential page is transmitted. You can set up to 10 settings (transmit frequency, tone frequencies) then select one for standby monitoring.
Broadcast Screen – Sets the scanner so it ignores Close CallTM or search hits on known broadcast frequencies including pager frequencies.
Custom Screen – Lets you input up to 10 frequency ranges that the scanner will ignore during Close CallTM or search operation.
Dropout Delay – You can set whether the scanner pauses at the end of a transmission to wait for a reply. You can set the delay time for each system you scan, and while searching and using the Close CallTM feature.
Attenuator – You can set the scanner’s attenuator to reduce the input strength of strong signals by about 18 dB.
Repeater Reverse – You can set the scanner so it switches to the input frequency on a conventional repeater system.
Channel Alert – You can set the scanner so it alerts you when there is activity on any channel you specify.
Memory Check – Lets you see at a glance how much total memory is left.
Scan and Search Operation – Lets you include selected service searches or custom search ranges during normal scan operation.
Custom Alerts – For each alert in the scanner (such as channel alert, Close Call alert, emergency alert), you can select from 9 different tone patterns and also set the alert volume level independently from the main volume level.
