    The Scan List has a maximum limit of 32 ’member" channels. Can this number be increased in the next CPS? For example: I like to be able to group my scan list by City and then by RF Band (VHF/UHF). I also have two (2) dmr RF repeaters, each with seven (7) talkgroups, so this requires 14 UHF dmr “members” or channels alone. Thus the maximum number of “member” channels makes a difference to me.

    In my City there are more than 32 VHF analog repeaters, plus more than 32 UHF analog repeaters.

    Making more than two (2) Scan Lists does not work on my RD-5R. Do the Scan Lists need to be grouped by Mode (Analog vs. dmr) separately?

    I am looking forward to your reply.
