### Scanning not allowed on 6m

During the last few days I have set up my Elecraft K3 to scan a section of the 2m band either side of the SSB calling frequency so I can be alerted if there is any Sporadic-E. But when I tried to set up scanning on 6m a message scrolls across the K3 display saying "SCANNING NOT ALLOWED ON THIS BAND".

Is this another one of those daft restrictions placed on inhabitants of the "land of the free", like the one that prohibits hams from buying medium-power linear amplifiers that cover 10m because CBers might get hold of them?
