Correct, timing shouldn't matter, at least for receiving the first
identity information frame from that FP. The scan isn't really optimal
currently though, as soon as it has received all information from
one FP, it switches to the next carrier. With some bad luck, this
might cause it to miss an FP indefinitely. What it should really
do is stay on the same carrier and only switch if the next FP it
discovery is already known.
