What do you think of Band Scope Mode (BSM)? Like/don’t like? Use/don’t use? Just a gimmick?

In the 9 years or so I’ve had my 996XT & now a 996P2, I’ve “played” with BSM 3 or 4 times. BSM is difficult (for me, at least) to use. It is slow to scroll to a frequency of interest. When I get there the signal may be gone & not return until I’ve decided to check another signal. To me it’s much easier, simpler, & faster to Custom Search (CS) the same frequency range as BSM would cover.

I see no advantage to BSM over CS.

Let the comments begin!

I use it a lot on my UBCD396XT, this is for hunting down 800MHz EDACS control channels and mapping the signal strength at various locations.
