Matt, this would be true of non DMA radios too - it's just much too big a range to search effectively. I know these scanners have a dedicated search for it - but you'd probably be better off building your own search, breaking the band down into segments - maybe of 1 mhz each or so - which would be much more effective. 73s Miketwolf816 said:the only thing ive noticed is when searching......ex: searching through the milair band takes FOREVER
also if a trs is on ID SRCH....it will take longer than if it was on ID SCAN..wabc770 said:I thought maybe it was hold times too in the OP's case. Tho on mine I had hold times
set to zero. It scanned conv channels okay, but with holds of 0 it would still linger for
2 1/2 to 3 secs on every trunk system - even with just 2 or 3 cc's loaded. X10 systems
and I'm up to 25-30 secs already - and I tweaked till blue in the face.
