I just bought this scanner about 2 weeks ago. I have it programmed with 2 conventional systems and 2 motorola systems. It spends about 3-4 seconds on each system when it is scanning. I have about 10 or so frequencies in the trunked system and 7-8 frequencies in the conventionals. I have about 3 or 4 channels listed as priority (dispatch channels). But I notice on my other scanner that I have it picks up as soon as someone keys up where as my new one continues to scan through until it gets to that system and then it will pick up the channel that is talking. Is this normal for this scanner to do this? It just seems like I am missing a lot of traffic that I should be hearing.
