Trunked scanner with bank scanners
Something I was curious about: Do the older digital trunking scanners with banks, such as the BC796D and the PRO-2096, allow you to scan a trunked system in between two banks of conventional frequencies? I'm taking about the actual order of scanning, not just how it is programmed. As best as I can tell, the PRO-197 scans all trunked systems at one time and all the conventional channels at once, regardless of how you have the systems programmed into numerical scan lists. Since scanning a trunked system takes a relatively long time, there could be some advantage of scanning all of your conventional frequencies first, then scanning one trunked system, then scanning all of your conventional frequencies again, then the second trunked system, etc. But that's assuming the scanner lets you put the same conventional frequencies in multiple banks.
