TOPIC: Limit Scan Area

Limit Scan Area 11 Jan 2011 12:23 #4424

I am new to this and especially to HomePatrol.
I live in Las Vegas and want just Vegas locations.
The HP loads California when I limit the scanning area to 10 miles.
How do I limit it to just the Vegas area?
450 different frequencies are loaded.
It is just new out of the box, upgraded and batteries charged.
Is it self limiting? ie it eliminates unused frequencies?
What did I miss? :(
Thanks so much for any help,

I just left Vegas (was there for CES). You didn't mention that some Arizona is also loaded. This is due to LV's proximity to both states (the state is loaded if you are within about 30 miles of the border). What I did (and recommend for such situations) is to relax with HP-1 in front of you for a while, and liberally use the "AVOID" function on the systems / departments / channels you don't really care about. Then, after you haven't needed to avoid anything for a while, create a favorites list and tell it to "Use Current Channels." This will bring in all the stuff you have not avoided from the current selection.

Thanks a lot. That was quick. Hope you had good time in LV as the Convention Bureau and Casinos soaked you guys for Triple $$$.
At other times rooms are 1/3rd.
Sorry, I got off topic.
I will use this and get to know it on my trip coming up...
Thanks a lot,
Hal

Unfortunately, I had a miserable cold from the night before I headed out until the morning I came back. This will give you an idea of the hot time I had: My total expenses for the trip were $28.37 (not counting hotel room).
