Within Scan Mode, what do the letters TO CO SE all stand for?

Time Operated (scan resumes after n-seconds, regardless)

Carrier Operated (scan resume when carrier signal is lost)

Not sure what SE stands for, but it acts as: Scan stops on signal, must be manually restarted (Hmmm, Scan Ends?)

According to CHIRP, it stands for "Search".

 

Strangely, with my DB25-G, the CO setting doesn't work correctly. With my handhelds, if I set them to CO, it will remain on that channel until it detects 5 seconds of silence. As long as those communicating key up within 5 seconds after the other one lets go of the PTT, it will stay on that channel. 

 

This doesn't seem to be the case on my DB25-G. As soon as one person lets off the button, it starts scanning again. 

 

This is actually the ONLY complaint I have with the DB25-G.

Manufacturer option (or may be programmable, again depends on manufacturer). For high speed scans, one wouldn't want the delay, or a minimal delay.

AnyTone D878UV series.

SCM TO: When scanning and stopping for a signal, stays at the channel 5s before resuming the scan.
SCM CO: When scanning and stopping for signal, stays at the channel until the signal disappears, and resumes scan 2s later.
SCM SE: When scanning and stopping for a signal, will terminate the scan. This function is only valid for a VFO scan.

Time operated is 5 seconds from when it detected the signal, Carrier operated is 2 seconds from loss of signal.

Icom ID-5100.

Pause Timer (Default: 10sec)
[MENU] > SET > Scan > Pause Timer
Selects the Scan Pause Timer. When receiving a signal, the scan pauses for this set period of time. LLIndividually selectable for A band and B band.
•• 2sec ~ 20sec: When a signal is received, the scan pauses for 2 ~ 20 seconds (in 2 second steps).
••HOLD: The scan pauses on a received signal until the signal disappears.

Resume Timer (Default: 2sec)
[MENU] > SET > Scan > Resume Timer
Selects the scan Resume Timer. When a received signal disappears, the scan resumes for this set period of time. LLIndividually selectable for A band and B band.
•• 0sec: The scan resumes immediately after the signal disappears.
•• 1sec ~ 5sec: The scan resumes 1 ~ 5 seconds after the signal disappears.
••HOLD: The scan remains paused for the “Pause Timer” setting, even if the signal disappears.
NOTE: Rotate [DIAL] to resume the scan.

Pause 2-20/Resume HOLD => Time operated
Pause HOLD/Resume 0-5 => Carrier operated

No idea how Pause 2-20/Resume 0-5 or Pause HOLD/Resume HOLD would behave.

 

 

I'll refrain from quoting the manuals of the other radios I own (currently 4 GMRS, 1 MURS [ignoring bubble pack radios for both], around 8 2m/70cm HTs, etc.).
