1 of 2 things
1 - you have a priority set - and the scanner is checking your priority channel(s) for activity

2 - You have Wx Alert active, and the scanner is checking NOAA to see if there are any alerts being broadcast

Do you have the priority feature on. If so turn it off and see if that keeps happening.
