I want to create a FAV list for HAM repeaters. Do I create it by using FILE - ADD - NEW CONVENTIONAL SYSTEM, and then saving the new group as a .hpd file? If so, how do I then place specific frequencies in a new favorites list? I looked in the manual and did not see how this works.
Yep, that pretty much describes the situation. In fact that is the very first thing I did with the ARC Patrol software was to add my local ham repeaters. As you know, you can only scan the download OR the FAVE list, not both. So if you want to scan other local public safety stuff in addition to the amateur services you will have to make a list with everything you need (want)included. Don't forget to load the list INTO the HP-1 once you have created it...I made the mistake of ommitting that essential step the first time around!
