AUTO GROUP SCAN G
(LTR TRUNKED OPERATION ONLY)
Auto Group Scan automatically scans
talkgroups within an LTR zone as programmed
by your dealer. Auto Group Scan can be either
non-prioritized or prioritized.
There are three types of Scan available in your
radio:
•
Non-prioritized Auto Group Scan
automatically scans all talkgroups
programmed with Auto Group Scan.
•
Prioritized Auto Group Scan automatically
scans the selected talkgroup and all lower
4-numbered talkgroups. For example, if
talkgroups 1, 3, and 4 have been
programmed by your dealer with Auto
Group Scan and talkgroup 4 is selected,
the radio automatically scans talkgroups 1,
3, and 4, and skips talkgroup 2.

resumes scanning.
You must press the PTT button to participate in
the call; otherwise, scanning continues to the
other talkgroups or channels.
