      Specifically, what it is looking for is the 8-second long 1050 Hz alert
      tone that comes with weather alerts on the weather channels. That's what
      it's doing during that gap.

      I only use it when I'm particularly concerned about severe weather.

      >> Question about the WX alert. When I have the WX alert set to "ON" and I go back the "scan" mode the WX symbol shows up in the lower right corner. That's how I know it's on. I'm noticing the I'm losing signal for whatever I'm scanning for a few moments every few seconds. Is this happening because it's temporarily switching into "WX" mode to check for a message?
