== Advanced (and much requested) Features ==
'''Temporary Lockout-'''
Pressing L/O one time while on a channel temporarily locks out that channel.
Pressing F+L/O one time while on a system temporarily locks out that system.
Pressing L/O or F+L/O two times results in a permanent lockout. Pressing L/O for more than 3 seconds unlocks all channels in the current system (or all search lockouts if in a search). F+L/O for more than 3 seconds unlocks all systems.
Temporary lockouts are removed when power is cycled.
'''Startup Configuration-'''
Pressing a number button while powering on the scanner automatically unlocks all systems assigned to that startup key and automatically locks all systems assigned to a different startup key (unassigned systems are not affected).
'''“Soft Search Keys-'''
Let you program the keypad’s secondary functions to turn on/off specified search ranges.
'''Three-Level Backlighting-'''
Lets you set the display/keypad backlight to any of three levels (or off).
'''Single-Handed Function Operation-'''
Tap Function to access F+ key presses. 5 seconds after your last key press, the scanner reverts to non F+ entry (or press Function again to revert sooner).
'''Close Call Temporary Store-'''
When this option is turned on, when the scanner gets a Close Call “hit", it temporarily saves the hit and includes that frequency when scanning. The scanner keeps the last 10 hits (older hits are erased by newer ones). Hits are lost when power is cycled. You can store a hit into memory by pressing “E" when on that frequency.
'''Alert Plus-'''
Sets the scanner for "wife and girlfriend" mode. Silences all channels and audio except for those channels and events that have an assigned alert.
