Using Rechargeable Batteries
You can also use three rechargeable batteries to power your scanner. Before you use
rechargeable batteries, you must charge them. The scanner has a built-in circuit that lets you
recharge batteries while they are in the scanner.
If the USB cable is connected to the scanner, or batteries are installed in the scanner when an
USB cable is connected, the scanner will check the battery condition.
When the scanner is turned on, the scanner does not charge the batteies.
When the scanner is turned off, the scanner will charge the batteies.
The scanner displays “Normal Charging” while charging the batteies according to the Set Charge
Caution: If the scanner gets too hot while charging, it will turn off automatically.
If the batteries are not installed, “No Battery” is displayed.
UNDERSTANDING THE MEMORY
All of the information contained in the scanner is stored on a microSD card supplied with the
scanner. This includes Favorites Lists, all the radio settings, and the Radio Reference database.
Because the memory is based on the Radio Reference database we now have a different order of
organization not like banks and channels in traditional scanners, but more like Dynamic Memory
Architecture. You can now use Favorites Lists that follow RR database structure of Systems that
contain Departments that hold the Channels (conventional frequencies or IDs) and then there
are Sites to hold just the trunking frequencies. If you are familiar with DMA (Dynamic Memory
Architecture) scanners, think of departments as being like channel groups.
Favorites Lists will allow you to store channels you nd when you are scanning from the full
database (the easiest way). They can contain channels from trunking systems and conventional
systems. You can also manually add systems, (not single sites), departments and channels into
