I guess I really don't understand the question because you aren't telling us what kind of traffic you want to listen too. I like Police and Fire and EMS so this is what I have tagged. You pick from the list of agencies you want tagged and if you want to listen to something else you can tag that too etc. It takes less than a minute to tag and load the new agencies or unload. That is what makes the HP-1 so nice.
I am new to this scanner, exactly what does "tagging" specifically do?
I made a favorite list but when I try to monitor that list, I don't see everything in my list when I have tried to scroll through it.
