Locking Out Channels
To lock out a channel while scanning, press L/OUT when
the scanner stops on the channel. To lock out a channel
manually, select the channel then press L/OUT so L appears.
Note: You can still manually select locked-out channels.
To remove the lockout from a channel, manually select
the channel and press L/OUT so L disappears.
Reviewing the Lock-Out Channels
To review all locked out channels, press MANUAL. Then
repeatedly alternate between pressing FUNC and then
L/OUT to view each locked-out channel. When you finish
reviewing locked-out channels, press MANUAL.

How hard is it to program a digital police scanner? I am thinking about buying one but I'm kind of scared to because I have heard that they are really hard to program and I want to know if that is true. I used to have a scanner back in like 1999, before they went digital here and I never had any problem programming the older scanners. I know I can get software for programming it thru a computer, but I'd like to save some cash. Is it real hard to program them manually?

There is no such thing as a "Digital police Scanner", its pretty much the whole reason they went digital int he first place. Its now a secure, private network. Listening to Live Police transmissions is not possible, unless you join the force or an affiliated organisation. Fact.

Sorry to be all doom and gloom, but thats just how it is.
