Talking and Listening
Scan (T5820 Only)
By Scanning, you can monitor Channels and Codes for transmissions and lock in on
the one that interests you. More importantly, you can find someone in your group who
has accidentally changed Channels and is talking during your scan.
To start scanning, briefly press and release the J. If you activate scan while your
code is set to 0, then the radio will check for activity on each Channel regardless of
the Code in use on that Channel. If you activate scan while the Code is set on 1 to
38, the radio will check for activity on each Channel, but only for Codes 1 to 38.
Transmissions using Code 0 are ignored. When the radio detects Channel activity, it
stops on that Channel and displays the Code in use.
While the radio is scanning, h will display and scroll through the Channels. When
activity is detected on a Channel, the radio will stop scanning and you will hear
whatever transmissions are detected. The radio’s display will show the Channel and
Code on which activity was detected.
If you want to respond to the transmission, press the M button within 5 seconds and
you can respond. To stop scanning, briefly press and release the J.
If scan stops on a Channel that you don’t want to listen to, briefly press either the [
and ] to resume scanning for the next active Channel.
