Scan125 Goes Weird on Steps?

Postby roundyuk » Sun Jan 27, 2019 8:18 pm

Has anyone noticed Scan125 just start scrolling on the device when looking at frequency steps on the UBC125XLT? Can't seem to recover unless I force kill....?

Just trying to figure out why when I type in 132.840 for LUS West it keeps correcting to 132.8416 ?

Hi roundyuk

Firstly you need to Email me with the support Email address on my website.

For Scan125 to determine what frequency step values are currently programmed in the scanner Scan125 has to go and actively search/navigate all the step value settings. This is why you see this scrolling/navigation. For Scan125 to know all the step settings you should let this scrolling/navigation complete. The reason Scan125 has to do this scrolling/navigation is that there is not external command that supplies this data. This means that Scan125 has to programmatically navigate the scanner (like you would do from the scanner keyboard) to gather the relevant data. This Scan125 navigation takes a finite time and you should just let it complete and not try to interrupt it.

Your second point ( when I type in 132.840 for LUS West it keeps correcting to 132.8416 ) is a well known and well misunderstood fact. Please research 8.33 airband channel separation info.

Bottom line is this. LUS West publish 132.840. This is NOT the actual frequency that the radio equipment finally uses. All very confusing and well discussed.
