PRO-2044 Programmable 80-Channel Home Scanner
(200-0416)                 Banks and Bands            Faxback Doc. # 38285

You can store up to 90 frequencies into either a permanent memory location
called a channel, or a temporary memory location called a monitor memory.

You can store up to 80 channels and up to 10 monitor memories. Your scanner
also has eight frequency bands, each covering a specific range of frequen-
cies you can search.

Channel-Storage Banks

To make it easier to identity and select the frequencies you want to listen
to, the scanner's channels are divided into 10 channel-storage banks (1-10)
of 8 channels each.  You can use each channel-storage bank to group freq-
uencies, such as those used by the police department, fire department, ambulance services, and aircraft (see "Guide to the Action Bands" on
Faxback Doc. # 38288).

For example, there might be three or four police departments in your area,
each using several different frequencies.  Additionally, there might be
other law enforcement agencies such as state police, county sheriffs, or
SWAT teams that use their own frequencies.

You could program all law enforcement frequencies starting with Channel 1
(the first channel in Bank 1), then program the fire department, paramedic,
and other public safety frequencies starting with Channel 17 (the first
channel in Bank 3).

Monitor Memories

Monitor memories are temporary storage areas where you can store up to 10
frequencies during a band search or direct search while you decide whether
to save them into channels.  You can manually select and listen to monitor

Frequency Bands

Your scanner has eight frequency bands, each covering a specific range of
frequencies.  You can search these bands for specific broadcasts by repeat-
edly pressing BAND until the scanner displays the band you want.

For example, you can search through all frequencies between 29.000 and
54.000 MHz for specific broadcasts by repeatedly pressing BAND until 29-54
appears on the display.  The scanner then automatically searches the freq-
uencies in that band.

This table shows the frequency band range displayed by the scanner and the
typical usage, frequency coverage, and step rate for each.

470-512      UHF "T" Band                    470.000 to 512.0000    12.5

NOTES:  Your scanner searches at the preset frequency step rate (5 or 12.5
        kHz) for each frequency. You cannot change the frequency step rate.

        While searching through a frequency band, you might hear a freq-
        uency you want to store. You can store any frequency into a monitor

        When you store a frequency in a monitor memory, that frequency also
        remains in the frequency band.

        You cannot change or delete any of the frequencies in the frequency
