I hate the idea that I can't just press SCAN and have the scanner resume
scanning on a trunked system. As it is now if you are on a trunked system
and you hit scan it loops right back to the same talkgroup most times.
There's a little-noticed feature of the 780 that I pointed out to the bunch
the last time we were at Fuddrucker's ... I guess you missed it.
Pressing the LIMIT key will cause the scanner to resume normal scanning,
starting at the NEXT BANK. (Bummer: it bypasses any conventional
frequencies in the trunking back).
(Bummer Number 2: it only works when the scanner stops on a TRUNKING system.
If you're on a conventional system, you have to press SCAN to bypass it).
But it does prove handy when Scottsdale PD guys are chit-chatting on 1E and
you want to temporarily bypass them.
