      That is not correct. The scanner uses the low-speed data (LSD).

      However, not every channel is going to be present in the LSD -- only those that are flagged by the radio system administrator as a priority channel.

      The Uniden talkgroup priority isn't working as one would expect.
      A normal system radio decodes the low speed subtone datasignal on the voice channel, where info are sent out about which other talkgroups gets activated in the system.
      BC346XT do not decode that info, it only decode the high speed control channel data and as a result it only switch to a prio talkgroup when the scanner is idle on the control channel.
      As BC346XT have a subtone decoder one thinks it would have been possible to make a "real" priority function similar to what the actual radios in the system use. Perhaps it is a patent issue.

      It also may not work at all if the talkgroup is not assigned as a
      priority talkgroup, or it may require a break in the current talkgroup
      so the scanner can see that the priority talkgroup is active.

      There are a lot of variables when it comes to trunked priority.
