This quick guide will show you how to create your own system then create a group to store your frequencies in.
Groups are a collection of individual channels. A group could store all the active Police channels in your area. Another group could store the Fire brigades local channels.
Channels are nothing without the frequency. A channel is where you store your frequency. If you have ten frequencies – you will need ten channels.
For this example we want to create a system that is our own, something that we can store our own information and monitor with ease of operation.
The groups inside the system could be Police, Fire and SES.
This indicates the obvious – the system is in the Melbourne Metro Area and contains the emergency services including the Police – Fire and SES.
An even simpler system could be the name of your local town and the group could be the local postcode.

To remove the current alpha text on the screen - push the .No button twice. This will remove the default alpha tag of ‘Group 1’. You can create new text for your group by using the volume dial and rotating it left or right and you will see text appear on the screen where the cursor is. I’m calling my group ‘5000’ so I will select number 5 to start with. To enter the second number or letter, push the 6 button once to move the cursor to the next position. Repeat the process of selection again until you have completed the name of your group. If you make a mistake push the 4 button and it will move the cursor back and you can make a correction – to leave a space – push the 6 button twice and it will create a space between words. These clues are also shown on the bottom of the screen.
