    It is showing the signal strength of the control channel it is evaluating to see what talkgroups are active (if any). Joe M.

I know it (obviously) shows the strength of the radio signals coming in, but when I am scanning the P25 statewide system here, it shows the number of bars that it has even when the scanner is still showing that it is scanning. I am trying to figure out if this is normal or if my scanner is having trouble decoding the digital signals and it is showing a signal coming in, but it can't give me the audio. Any thoughts?
