I've got an ancient Icom that I think I could get to do your request by selecting the channels I want into memory and then doing a memory only scan . . . but even then I'm not sure channel 16 could be opted out. It may be hardcoded into every setting as the default channel.
I've never tried. In fact, the last three sailboats I've owned have been U.S. documented and I have to monitor ch 16 when operating.
Granted, it's the Trucker's Channel and amateur hour hereabouts and I often would like to shoot the receiver, but whatchagonnado?
