Following these steps to store a frequency into a channel.

1.  Press MANUAL.  Enter the channel number you want to program.

2.  Press PROG.  PGM appears on the display to indicate the scanner is in

5.  Repeat Steps 1 through 4 to program more channels.

    NOTE:  If you want to program the next channel in sequence, repeat
           Steps 2 through 4.


Good references for active frequencies are Radio Shack's "Police Call
Guide Including Fire and Emergency Services," "Official Aeronautical
Frequency Directory," and "Maritime Frequency Directory."  We update these
directories every year, so be sure to get a current copy.

If you do not have a reference to frequencies in your area, use a Limit or
direct search to find a transmission.  See also "A Guide to the Action
Bands" in this manual.
