Love that paint can antenna. I tried something like that before. I used something smaller though (a soup can) which I assume was too small? Not sure, but I built the attached corner reflector and its...

I have both on 24x7 and I can honestly say neither. Its a crap shoot. Some people swear by this scanner or that scanner. Its all about location, location, location. There is no consumer grade scanner...

Paul, I wish you could track down my original scanner which I sent back to you a couple weeks ago. I think it would be a great test specimen as this problem occurred very regularly. It was S/N...

Ditto..Thanks UPman!



Agreed. I will say though, I was initially hesitant to give up my "new" scanner for a replacement. But now, I'm happy my original 536 is gone. <knocking on wood> The...

BCD536HP USB Keeps Disconnecting

I'm convinced that this is a scanner hardware issue in which a number of scanners have a bad USB port. My original 536 disconnected with no rhyme or reason also and the USB cable felt loose when...

Great info. Thank-you. Do you know if its possible to downgrade the firmware? I thought I read someplace that you cannot. I may want to give that a twirl.

Yes.




Deleted drivers, cleaned registry and reinstalled drivers. Plus, tried 2 cables not including the one that came with the scanner.

Thanks though.

Thanks for the heads up. I installed the new 1.03.03 firmware this morning and within 2-3 hours the scanner kicked itself into mass storage mode. So, for me, no improvement. Bummer.

Since my 536 is one of the recalled units, I think at this point I'll send it in and swap for a fixed unit. Once I have the working (noise-free) headphone jack, I'll use that for my radio feed...

Nice! I haven't checked that. I'll clean it up and reinstall tomorrow. Thank-you.
