At the same time, the bottom 2 lines will each flash the hot key numbers corresponding to the site(tower) and group. If the transmission lasts long enough the the screen will either switch colors to the default, or go out (depending on how I have it set at the moment), and the transmission continues. So if this is what you see, than this is normal.

However, looking at the scanner display, while I still I still hear the transmission, the light will go out and the scanner will start scanning channels/TGs again. I'll still hear the transmission from the TG, but the scanner will have moved on display-wise. Is that normal or do I have to adjust something?
