Don't let this question slip your mind as well....

Hi, I apologise for the late reply. When listening to a Tier III single site such as a cap+ system that uses both timeslots with timeslot filtering switched off, it will latch on to the first heard timeslot, when activity ceases on that slot, it will alternate to the other active slot.
There is a local cap+ system nearby that I listen to on a regular basis, often times on a regular DMR radio I have to switch between two channels for each over because the system will alternate between TS'S on each transmission. With my DM-1801 I don't have to do that.

Thanks for that, sounds promising..
