Default Slight Hic-up in Idle

I've got another question with regard to my 1997 Bravada (94,000 miles). When it's in park with the air conditioner on I hold the RPM's at around 1700 and every 6-8 seconds there is a slight decrease in RPM's. By slight I mean around 400. Now, I can feel it when I set the cruise at 60mph, but there's just a slight hitch, not a 400 rpm decrease. With the A/C off, it's just fine. Any ideas?

The A/C compressor is not running at all times. The decrease in RPM is due to the added load from the compressor when the compressor clutch locks up. I too notice whenever my compressor kicks on in my '00 Bravada and have felt it in the Blazer's that some of my family members own. I would assume that it is just normal.

Is there anyway to smooth that out? It doesn't bother me when idling, but it's pretty annoying while driving on the highway.
