      Joe,

      The P25 does trigger the backlight, however only stays on few short period of time, even while the signal is still present.

I see you can set the delay time, set the backlight for on all the time, and squelch,(P25 does not use squelch) and keyboard, etc. Not seeing anything where I can have the backlight come on in all modes and stay on until the signal drops. I was able to do this in my previous Radio Shack and GRE hand helds, but through the software only...not via menu within the scanner.
