Unlike the prior XT series, there does not seem to be a way to determine whether the scanner is actually receiving a control channel with adequate strength to trunk track. On the XT, the scanner would (could) display the control channel frequency being received and would give a "Finding Control Channel" message if it was not receiving one. I have noted that on the P25 systems the scanner displays "DAT" when receiving a control channel but this does not appear to be the case with a 3600 baud Motorola system or an EDACS system. Am I missing something?
