      Well, I'm pretty sure I was wrong about how this works with the latest
      firmware
      versions (for 996 at least.still waiting to confirm with XT). It *used
      to* be
      that way, but Paul says he thinks it was fixed, and I'm inclined to
      agree.

      At least for multi-select, I heard a hot call being broadcast with the
      voice of
      the INFO operator, but I *did not* have INFO selected, and I heard the
      hot call
      on one of the main talk groups, which I *did* have selected. That's
      exactly
      the behavior I want.

      Note that I'm talking about multi-select broadcasts. I'm not 100%
      certain how
      it works on patched channels. It's not something we do with regularity
      on the
      Maricopa P16. Phoenix does it a lot on their P25 -- I'll have to pay
      attention
      when I'm in range tomorrow.

      What, specifically, do you see/hear Mike?

      I would add a strong "second" to this recommendation.

      I have to listen to lots of unwanted 10-27/10-28/10-29 queries on the
      INFO
      channel just in case it gets chosen for sending HOT traffic .. which it
      frequently does, because at MCSO in Phoenix, it's the INFO operator who
      multi-selects all the other channels and broadcasts the alert for the
      hot call
      ..

      One thing I think I would like more than anything else in a trunk
      tracking scanner is the ability to properly handle talkgroup patches on
      Motorola trunked systems. What I mean is, when TG A and TG B are
      patched together, I want to be able to hear the traffic regardless of
      whether I'm sitting on TG A or TG B. Currently the talkgroup that "gets
      the traffic" is dependent upon the order in which the dispatcher patches
      them. Any chance of ever getting this feature in a trunktracker? :)
