Angry APX 7000XE Strange Scan Sound

When I scan analog frequencies and someone is talking I hear a quick burst through their voice almost like doubling or garbling underwater. It's really fast and happens every second only when scan is on. It's almost like the scan is fluttering rapidly through channels.

Sounds like you have priority scan enabled. Even though the radio is monitoring traffic on one of your channels/personalities, it is continuing to sample the programmed priority channel.

My 7000XE scans through P25 and analog and I have never experienced what you noted; with or without the bluetooth speaker mic engaged.

Another person may have improved feedback, so perhaps wait to do the following:
- Read your radio and save your current configuration.
- Write a new clean config using only analog frequencies and make sure they are set for non-Astro.

If the scan still has that garble I am stumped, as I am not a Moto guru. Hopefully someone will chime in.

Looks like you were right. I had "fixed" channel priority enabled to keep the knob selected channel under priority. I turned it off and voila! No strange noises, just clear audio of each channel it scans. Thank you oh knowledgeable one!
