What are you talking about? You know what I am referring to is not RX two channels at the exact same time, but rather than ability to scan-monitor more than one channel. The Minitor pagers do this effortlessly. Moto and Harris radios do this effortlessly and/or do so across multiple systems or bands .


... and ... "If you need to monitor two dispatch channels, you need two radios" ... then why is it the Minitor III, IV, V, VI are all capable of this within a single band?

So, you can guarantee that if I am using a Minitor III or up, I will not miss a transmission on another frequency if it is already receiving on an active frequency? That I will receive 100% of both transmissions 100% of the time? If you read your statements, that is what you are claiming.

In my observations, the Unication performs as efficiently as a Minitor when programmed to the same parameters that the Minitor is limited to (up to 5 channels, single band ). Whether it be a Unication or Minitor, the second you introduce scan, you introduce the possibility of the priority function sampling at the wrong time and missing part of the A tone, possibly enough that it won't alert.

I stand by my statement. If you have an absolute need to monitor two dispatch channels without missing anything, you need two dedicated radios. Anything less indicates that you do not have a true need or that you are happy with a half-assed solution. Pagers are for convenience, not need.
