To keep from accidentally changing the scanner's programming, you can lock

Many agencies use a two-way radio system that might have a pause of several
seconds between a query and a reply.

When your scanner displays an active frequency or channel, it automatically
waits for 2 seconds after the completion of each transmission on that
frequency or channel before it resumes scanning.


You can scan banks faster by locking out many frequencies or channels that
have a continuous transmission or static.

To lock out a frequency or channel while scanning, press L/OUT when the
scanner displays the frequency or channel number until L/O appears.

To remove the lockout, manually select the frequency or channel, then press
L/OUT when the scanner displays the frequency or channel number. L/O 
disappears from the display.

NOTES:  The scanner automatically locks out empty channels.

        You can lock out all frequencies and channels in a bank.  However,
        if all frequencies and channels within the bank are locked out, the
        scanner beeps three times when you press that bank key and will not
        scan the bank.

        You can still manually select locked-out channels.

        You cannot lock out any frequencies within the WX or AIR service
        scan banks.
