Hello,

What exactly does the "delay" function on a scanner do? I have a RS PRO-135

Thank you
A scanning delay would be the length of time the scanner holds on a frequency or channel after a transmission ends before resuming scanning.

It's purpose is to avoid missing the next transmission (call back) on that channel, rather than moving along immediately and not hearing it.

Quoted from the 135 manual.

"Sometimes a user might pause before replying
to a transmission. To avoid missing a reply on
a specific channel, the scanner automatically
programs a 2-second delay into any channel or
frequency."

You can increase, or decrease it based on your need/desire.

Do all scanners allow you to adjust the delay time? I'm not sure my RS scanner can do that. Or maybe I just can't figure it out...

My apologies, you can't adjust it on the 135. (It's either on or off.)
