Afternoons are generally the busiest time each day
Sunday afternoons and evenings seem to have the highest amount of communications traffic of any day.
I discovered on March 27, 2023 that the Bearcat scanner had stopped receiving. After cleaning contacts and such, it seems to be receiving again. I've no idea how long this was an issue but resolved for now.
