What is a bandscan?

I'm sure there's a more or less official meaning, but I'd interpret  
it as going to the place in question and then slowly scanning through  
the FM dial from end to end, possibly with muting and AFC turned off  
(if the tuner allows it) just to see what's on the dial.

And since he found something that 'shouldn't be there', he thought it  
was reasonable to mention it on the list.
