Close Call 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
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.
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.
Pager Screen - You can set the scanner so it ignores hits generated by common pager frequencies while using the Close Call or search features.
12 Service Searches - frequencies are preset in separate public safety,
news, amateur radio, marine, railroad, air, CB radio, FRS/GMRS, racing,
TV Analog broadcast,
FM broadcast, and special searches, to make it easy to find 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.
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) for standby monitoring.
Broadcast Screen - Sets the scanner so it ignores Close Call or search hits on known broadcast frequencies.
Custom Screen - Lets you input up to 10 frequency ranges that the scanner will ignore during Close Call 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 Call feature.
Attenuator - You can set the scanner's attenuator to reduce the input strength of strong signals by about 18 dB received by the scanner.
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 13 can select from
9 different tone patterns and also set the alert volume level independently from the main volume level.
Automatic Channel Step - Accepts frequencies on any valid channel step, even if it does not fall within the band plan's default step.
Frequency Step - Lets you select a frequency step (5, 6.25, 7.5,
8.33, 10, 12.5,15, 20, 25, 50 or 100 kHz) for manual mode
and chain search mode. The scanner's auto step feature lets you set the scanner so it automatically chooses the correct step.
Quick Recall - Lets you quickly select a specific channel by
choosing the system, group, and channel.
Scan/Search Delay - You can set the scanner so it remains on a frequency up to 5 seconds after the last transmission to wait for a possible reply.
Text Tagging - You can name each system, group, channel, talk group ID, custom search range, and SAME group, using up to 16 characters per name.
Unique Data Skip - Allows your scanner to skip unwanted data transmissions and reduces birdies.
Duplicate Frequency Alert - Alerts you if you try to enter a duplicate name or frequency already stored in a system.
Memory Backup - If power is lost or disconnected, the scanner retains the frequencies you programmed in its memory.
Note: The scanner's frequency coverage is not continuous and does not include the cellular telephone band.
Trunk Tracker IV Operation
- Follows conversations on analog Motorola,
Motorola Astro (APCO 25), EDACS, EDACS SCAT, and LTR trunked radio
systems. The scanner can scan both conventional and trunked systems at the same time.
