CHANNEL PROGRAMMING FUNCTIONS
Setting to the FREQ Mode
The FREQ MODE is the state in which the frequency can be changed using the rotary selector or the numeric keys.
To set your receiver to FREQ mode:
Confirm the display. If M is displayed, press CLEAR PROGRAM key.
(When ‘M’ is displayed, you are in the Channel Memory Mode. )
Use rotary selector to change the frequency up or down to confirm you are in FREQ Mode.
Changing the Frequency
There are three methods for changing the frequency, 1) using rotary elector, 2) using the 5 key or ENT key while the
FUNC key is pressed, and 3) using the numeric keys.
Before changing the frequency, confirm you are in FREQ Mode by pressing CLEAR PROGRAM key.
The Channel Memory Function
l Frequencies that are used frequently in the expanded Mode can be entered to channel memories. Up to 399
different frequency settings can be entered into channel memories.
l The Mode in which frequencies are entered to channel Memory or called from channel Memory is called the
Channel Memory Mode. When in this Mode, the „M“ indicator lights up in the display.
l The number of the channel Memory where a frequency is stored is called the Channel Memory Address.
Channel Memory Addresses are available from 001 to 399 .
l A Channel Memory Protect function ( 33) is provided to prevent changes in the contents of channel Memory or
clearing of channel Memory by mistake.
The following types of channels are provided for different purposes.
Search Band Channel Memories ( 32, 40)
Upper and lower limit frequencies of each band are entered into corresponding channel numbers. Up to 10
sets (20 frequencies) of upper/lower limit frequencies can be entered into these channel memories. These
frequencies have been preprogrammed in these channel memories at the factory, however, they are all
programmable.
Search Pass Memory
Frequencies entered in this channel Memory are automatically skipped when a search is in progress. When
there is a frequency that you do not want to receive, they can be entered into these Memory channels. Up to
80 frequencies can be entered in this channel Memory.
Priority Channel Memory ( 32)
One frequency which is most frequently used can be entered into this channel Memory. During SCAN, this
frequency is automatically monitored alternatively with frequencies in other channels. (Dual Watch, 46).
How to Store A Frequency into Channel Memory
Frequently used frequencies can be programmed into a channel Memory.
Set the unit in FREQ Mode by pressing CLEAR PROGRAM key.
Enter the frequency you want to program into a channel by using numeric and decimal keys.
(Illust. 17-1)
Hold down FUNC key and press CLEAR PROGRAM key.
(This activates the channel memory store state.)
(Illust. 17-2)
Lowest vacant channel number appears on the display. Hold down FUNC key and press CLEAR PROGRAM
key once again to program selected frequency into the indicated channel number or enter 3-digit channel
number that you wish to program into by using numeric keys.
(A high pitched beep is emitted, the frequency is entered into channel Memory and the receiver returns to the
FREQ Mode.)
Note:
l In Step 4, enter corresponding channel numbers if you wish to program the frequencies Search Band Channel
Memories. The corresponding channel numbers are 400 for 0-A and 401 for 0-b (Band „0“), 402 for 1-A and
402 for 1-b (Band „1“) and , ..., 418 for 9-A and 419 for 9-b. ( 40). Refer to page XXX for more details.
l When programming a frequency into Priority Channel Memory, use the Selector to display the Pri indicator or
enter 000 as channel number by using the numeric keys.
l In Step 4, if there is no vacant channel Memory address, the display shows „min -“.
How to Recall the Channel Memory [1]

Search and Scan Function
Search and Scan Function
l In the Expanded Mode, in order to search for the desired frequencies, Search and Scan functions are provided.
A Dual Watch function is also provided where a specific frequency can be received alternately with a frequency
stored in channel memory.
l
The Search function has three different types.
All Search (‘39)
Searches the entire band.
One Touch Search (‘39)
Searches between two frequencies written to Search Band Channel Memory.
Program Search (‘41)
Searches specific range.
l
The Scan function allows you to access all or specified channel memory addresses in sequence. This function
has three different types.
All Channel Memory Scan (‘43)
Scans all the frequencies stored in channel Memorys.
Memory Scan Memory (‘44)
Scans specific channel memories .
Block Channel Memory Scan (‘45)
Scans frequencies stored in channel memories in a block. A block consists of 100 channel memory addresses.
When a signal is received, Scan/Search stops. There are three ways to stop a Scan/Search and resume the
operation after. This method can be set separately for Scan and Search.
Pause Type
The Scan/Search stops when a signal is received. However, after about 5 seconds, the Scan/Search resumes even
if a signal is being received. This can be changed to a time other than 5 seconds using the Set Mode. ( ‘45).
Busy Type
Scan/Search halts while a signal is being received. If the no signal is received, the Scan/Search resumes after about
2 seconds. To indicate the unit in this Mode, B appears on the display and stays on.

Skipping a Frequency During a Search [1] (Search Pass Channel Memory)
During a search, the unit may stop at the unwanted frequencies such as noise or blank carrier. These frequencies
can be programmed into Search Pass Channel Memories and the receiver allows you to search through the band
without stopping at these unwanted frequencies. 80 frequencies can be programmed in Search Pass Channel
Memory. The addresses of this channel memory allocated for Seach Pass are from P00 to P79. Search Pass
Channel Memory is entered during a search operation by the following procedure.
Confirm that the search is stopped on the unwanted frequency to be skipped or set at the unwanted frequency
by rotary selector.
(Illust. 32)
Hold down FUNC key and press 9 L/OUT key.
( A high pitched beep is emitted and the frequency is stored in search pass channel memory.)
Note:
l If all 80 channels of Search Pass Memories are full, „Pin -“ is displayed and no frequencies can be
programmed into Search Pass Memory. In such a case, clear any of the frequencies programmed into Search
Pass Memory channels by entering corresponding 3-digit numbers of the channel that you wish to be erased.
The new unwanted frequencies is automatically rewritten into this channel.
l While in Channel Memory Mode (‘M’ appears on the display), by holding down FUNC key and pressing the 7
FREQ/CH key, the Search Pass Channel Memory displays. Change the channel Memory addresses using the
numeric keys, Selector, etc.
