Skywarn Programming

You can quickly access your local Skywarn repeater by programming that frequency into channel 200, and then pressing the FUNC + ./CLR key combination.

However, the scanning of bank 10 now becomes somewhat ineffective if your Skywarn repeater is busy with non-Skywarn traffic (i.e. regular ham radio activity).

The solution is to lock out channel 200. The Skywarn repeater will not be scanned, but it will still be accessible via the FUNC + ./CLR key combination.
