Author Topic: Icom IC-7000 Memory Scan  (Read 641 times)

First off, I am a newly licensed ham (3 weeks) so please be gentle if this has been answered elsewhere. I find the manual quite cryptic.

I have uploaded about 70 frequencies into my IC-7000, but when I select Memory Scan, I have a problem. If I select Scan Resume ON in the menus, the radio will
lock on a busy frequency for about 10 seconds and then resume scanning (hard to follow a QSO). If I turn Scan Resume OFF, the radio stops scanning at the
first busy channel and stays there even if the channel goes quiet.

I would like the radio to stop on a busy channel and stay there until the channel goes quiet and then continue scanning to the next busy channel it locks
onto. (Like a conventional scanner)

If I understand the manual, (and I don't think I do), I think this has something to do with a squelch setting, but I can't find it in any of the menus.

Any and all help would be most appreciated, and I thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, that's what the IC-7000 does. It's, perhaps, my biggest gripe about the radio.. which I otherwise generally love.

Thanks Chris.  I thought it was working as I want BEFORE I did a factory reset.  Maybe I'm mistaken.

Oh well, story of my life...
