What I did:
1) Video the heartbeat icon of the R1 turning on and off at 240 fps
2) Calculate time from heartbeat on to heartbeat on again = Time of 1 "scan cycle" (according to Uniden R series user manuals, this was calculated for 4 cycles to obtain an average)
3) I added a chart showing how much bandwidth is scanned for each segment or setting
Note1- If I did not test the exact settings you run and you wish to get an approximate scan time (in ms) for your settings, add up the total bandwidth (in MHz) scanned under your settings, and plug in for 'x' in the slope-intercept formula to calculate 'y' which will be roughly the time to complete 1 cycle (since bandwidth scanned and scan cycle time are roughly linear).
Note2- The GHz per second "scan speed" (overall scan time/total bandwidth scanned) appears to increase as you increase the total bandwidth scanned. This most likely does not mean that the detector is scanning faster, but rather it is not being penalized for segmenting or "switching" between segments as much.
K or Ka Filtering does not seem affect scan times within a statistical difference.
