won't program it, but sales shops might
for a fee.
All you have
to know is the type of service that you
want to hear and the zip code you're in,
then set a range (in miles) and you'll
hear a lot.
And if it
plays too much or not enough of the right
thing, you'd have to ship it off for weeks
and spend still more money. It's time to
learn something new.
make a list of the specifics of what you
want to hear and remove what you don't.
Using the programming software (which
updates and uses a complete database),
it's not that hard. Create a list of what
you want, push it into the scanner,
run multiple lists at the same time
(Hometown Fire, Hometown LE, Local Trains
etc.). If that's still too much, there
are ways to quickly add/delete what you
hear (without removing the lists).
I have a
'Winter load' list (road dept for
plowboys, LE, Fire) then a "Summer Load"
(the same plus forestry and a LOT of other
fire season stuff) and with a few button
pushes, can change them. To those, I can
add other lists (next state over, more
counties away) with button pushes. Start
slow, build on your new knowledge.
is here to assist you in understanding.
