• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Cuts out every few seconds?

I have a BR-330T with latest firmware.

I monitor a Motorola II system, our local county (Palm Beach County) and I notice that when people are talking, about every 2 seconds, it quickly fades out and then back it, almost like they drop carrier, but they don't. I am not sure if its signal fading (every now and then I can see a signal drop out that coincides with this) or if this is behavior of the Mot II trunk system, or what. Another thought is that since I am inside my house on the rubber duckie (got a good antenna coming this week) maybe its my concrete block construction house screwing with the signal.

Is this normal?

Since you mention this only WRT a particular system, it is probably NOT Priority, weather alert, or Close Call, but just in case...

I am almost sure that it IS one of those.

Every 2 seconds is one of 3 things on a 330, Priority, Search or Close Call being active. Find whats turned on and turn it off. That will stop it.

Thanks guys, yes, I do run CC at the same time, and I mostly only scan this one system. I turned off CC and it went away! Thanks for the quick response..............I think I will run CC only when necessary :) Quite annoying with it breaking out every 2 seconds.
