Re: [Elecraft_K3] Scanning Problem ( K3)


Bob- thanks for the quick reply. What you describe, sounds like a mostly manual operation.. When I do M>V and recall the stored freqs, should that populate both VFO A  & B and then be able to proceed to the "Hold the Scan" to start the scanning op??

Set VFO A to the lowest freq. Set VFO B to the high freq. Go to a
different band. Now come back to the band that you set the freqs for.
The radio will now read them. Now hold the scan button......
