Land Mobile Radio users have an increasing need to interoperate with users on other radio systems. Many users operate from a multitude of indepen- dent radio systems. Many times the user desires to monitor independent trahic on a first-in-first-out basis across a handful of different systems. Prior multi- independent system "scan" methods forces the radio unit to monitor the control channel for target trahic activity in a round robin fashion. This has many problems since it takes a great deal of time to scan each control channel for a particular class of traffic activity. Many times this results in missed commu- nications since a round robin scan can take as long as a typical mobile transmission.
