While this is true, there is only one pair (of 13) that was rebanded to a "borrowed" channel number (meaning an old radio will never tune to that channel). Better, it's one that, through logging traffic via Unitrunker, I have found is little used.
So, if you subtract the 4 potential control channels (two of which do, occasionally, get assigned voice traffic when the system is busy but only occasionally) from 13 you get 9. Only one of those channels is unscannable because of the rebanding. If you do the math, that's only an 11% chance that you'll miss part of a call.
But that assumes that the channels are used equally and they are not.
My BC780XLT works just fine. I may well miss stuff, but I've never noticed.
