• 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:

Odd 436 issue - appears to stop receiving until reboot

So this is odd, maybe the favorites list I am monitoring is just oddly silent at the times i am experiencing this but it seems if I am listening to a Marcs IP P25 favorites list (Hamilton county, Ohio - Law dispatch, tac, talk) that the system seems to go oddly silent.

I do an analyze and signal strength, and quality is good and i can see the activity bar moving..so I know I am getting signal. This can happen even if I am sitting at a fixed location..so I know I am range of the transmitters.

If I power it off and then back on, the unit seems to come alive again...

Again this could be coincidence, but it seems to be strangely quiet until I reboot..maybe perfect timing of activity but this just started happening and the unit is about 2 months old.


I did try a new SD card for giggles, and that didn't really change anything.

Anyway, again maybe there isn't an issue but this is strangely odd.

My 436hp does this when I hold on a talkgroup, it will not receive anything again till I hit scan and sometimes I have to reboot it.

I actually think it has to do with the system itself. They are changing control channels/sites.

I have to partially agree with the OP. I seem to pick up traffic great but the longer my 436 I feel the batteries drain more I end up restarting or plugging it up and it does fine after that.

I had that happen to my 436 then not long after that the SD card failed and got replaced with the spare I keep with me in my spare battery holder.
