Default screen display when receiving conventional channels

On the G4, I have a zone set up to receive some conventional 800 MHz frequencies (NPSPAC channels and others).

When receiving a call on a conventional channel, the display window shows:

To [CSQ]

Fm [CSQ]

When it's not receiving, the display shows the alias that I assigned in the PPS. Is this the way it's supposed to work? Can I have the alias show when it's receiving? This is not an issue with trunked talkgroups, only conventional channels.

Let me rephrase the question.

Does anyone monitor conventional frequencies on their G4 or G5?
If so, what info is shown on the display when the voice is being received?

AFAIK that is the normal display protocol for conventional channels. It has to do with MDC1200 paging. If you are just using it as a scanner it is pretty annoying. See this old thread for the explanation I was given when I first got my G5 back in 2016.

Thanks for the reply; I see you had the same question. So evidently what we are seeing in the display is normal, not a result of improper programming.

CSQ is correct.
If you monitor a P25 conventional channel you will see the TG ID and below it User ID. if memory serves me correct.

If you're scanning conventional channels in normal scan mode, it will display the alaias when it stops on a channel. It doesn't display the alias if you're on single conventional analog channel that's set to monitor mode.
