The hypermemories are perhaps the most misunderstood feature of this radio. I figured out how to program the 5 hypermemories to my satisfaction, but I can't figure out how to get it out of hypermemory operation.

I can select any of the 5 hypermemories, but I can't get it back into just plain-old scan mode, no hypermemory.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Teak,

When you first turn on your radio, look at the top left corner of the disply.  It will say HP-x where x is equal to the hyper memory the radio is in.  The truth of the matter is that you cannot ever get out of the hyper memory modes.  I set my radio up where HP-1 is my "normal" mode.  I set my other hyper memories up so that I have various memory banks linked depending on the geographical region I'm traveling in and so that it is already in a mobile scan mode.  When in doubt, or if I touch the wrong button, I can simply push whichever hyper memory I want, or HP-1 to give me my "normal" radio.

I agree with you that the manual does a poor job explaining the operation of the memories, but once I got over the hurdle of how they worked, I really enjoy them.

73,
