Thanks for the prompt and helpful reply (much more prompt than this
one).  That clarified quite a bit.

Haha, thanks.  I tested it in 850 and scanned through channels 128 to
251 and was able to identify a Paging Channel (PCH) at 180, and some
other stuff on some other channels.  So ccch_scan appears to work in
the 850 band; not sure about anything else or about 1900.

Thanks again, just replying to document the findings.
