NOTE: Importing from the Radio Reference Database only works if you are a Premium Subscriber to the Radio Reference Web site. The key to unlock the utility for importing systems, TGs, and/or conventional frequencies from the Database is the Premium Subscription.
It must be noted that a Premium Subscription is NOT required to take advantage of the information on the Radio Reference Web site, but there are some functionalities that you will not be able to access without it.

"Closed Mode" occurs when there is not a Wildcard in working memory, or the Wildcard is locked out so scanning is limited to specific Talk Groups.
