I was checking the Arizona Forum and the database. It appears they're making some changes to the sites, and while I'm not familiar with the G4, I don't think they're programmed the same. Since it worked flawlessly for over 3 years, something happened out there. Take some time to sit down and check all your settings, site frequencies, talk groups etc. We all understand your frustration.

It may not be the issue at all, but anything new can pop up at any time.

When I used to work at a hospital, we had something similar just appear one day and I was able to narrow it down to the offending source. Something was interfering with our patient telemetry. It too was intermittent. Sometimes brief, and sometimes sustained for several minutes.

There was nothing licensed in the area for the frequency. Turned out, it was a paging transmitter that started transmitting harmonics. The VHF transmitter started emitting RF in the UHF band.

You haven't just recently installed one of the newer LED strip light fixtures nearby, have you? These can kill reception of FM signals.
I was using a scanner in my garage that quit receiving after I replaced a 4' fluorescent fixture with one of the newer LED fixtures.

Just a thought.
