Don,The various "delay time" settings (CONV, TGRP) won't have any effect on scanning speed, if that term means "how often we check a conventional channel if nothing else is active".
There are a couple of settings that can increase the conventional channel scan rate. However, these settings can also cause you to miss transmissions if you mess with them too much:
* PGM FUNC GLOB "SQ Wait 1" - decrease value
* PGM FUNC GLOB "SQ Wait 2" - decrease value
* TSYS's "Dwell" setting - change from default of zero to some number less than 10.
You can also try sorting your conventional channels so that ascending ObjectID values are also ascending frequency. This will help speed up the per-channel tuning time.
Thanks Don.The only "sorting" that will have any effect on scanning speed is if you sort all conventional channels in order of frequency, no matter what scan list they're in. EDIT: Clarification: if you're looking at the conventional channels in order of ascending ObjectID, you'd also want to see either ascending or descending frequency. If I was doing it in Win500, I'd go to the CONV objects tab, show all scan lists, sort on frequency, then re-assign object IDs so that they were also now sorted. The scanner scans conventional channels in order of ascending object ID, and the idea is to avoid "bouncing" up and down in frequency.
Sorting talkgroups will have no effect.
