If you are referring to the programmable delay time for each object then that simply tells the scanner how long to pause on that object to listen for replies. It has nothing to do with the length of any squelch tails.

I too have reported this to the whistler many months ago and nothing has been done.
Yes, this is exactly the problem.

An email about this problem has been sent over to the Engr to look at. I got this from a high up source

By the time they fix this problem I'll be ready to sell it to get one of the new mobile scanners that may actually work on a phase II LSM system. Good grief.

I am holding out for a fix or I won't be buying anything new from them. Same goes for Uniden.

Yep - in some of my mobile installs, both the Unidens and Whistlers get hit hard by the junk emanating from the dash.

One solution, with antennas in the rear of the vehicle, is to use #43 type (30-300mhz) ferrite chokes near the input of the scanner, AND near the feedpoint of the antenna itself.

That got rid of much of the common-mode interference hitting the coax braid, and eventually traveling back down inside the coax to the scanner.

Mag-mounts are particularly prone to common-mode interference, so we drilled holes (gulp!) for a good quality nmo-type mount.

Still, in stubborn cases direct reception by the antenna itself, and not the common-mode problem of the braid, can lead to head-aches no matter what.
