frequency scanning
Conducting a search for signals over a band or range of frequencies by means of a manually or automatically tuned receiver. Note: The tuning rate, i.e., the frequency change rate, may be fixed or variable, or it may be performed mechanically at low speed or electronically at high speed. Frequency scanning may be used to enable a radar to transmit on a clear frequency, i.e., a no-interference frequency, by searching a frequency band and then tuning the system to a clear portion of that band. [From Weik '89]
