    I am receiving interference on a one-way listen-only analog frequency on a BTech DMR-6X2 Pro while sitting at my desk. It makes squelching noises intermittently and then just stops. This happens nowhere else so far. Are there settings I can change to be able to sit on the channel without...

    Hearing digital on FRS 1 in Toronto

    Over the last few years, I've been hearing digital mode on FRS in Southern Ontario. Specifically, FRS 1 when in Toronto/Mississauga. It seems to always hog the channel. What might this be and is it even legal for someone to do this? Here is what's going on:

    Help with RFI coming from my PC please!

    I've been getting a low, pulsing hum on certain stations (happens a lot around 4840 and the surrounding areas). I was pulling my hair out, but I think I figured it out. It's not interference from my home electrical system or various electronics: it's my dang PC! I connected my SDR (HF+...

    Wouxun Wouxun UV-9D Mate Radio is picking up lots of interference

    I just bought the Wouxun UV-9D Mate from BuyTwoWayRadios. It is a great radio, but it has some issues I noticed immediately. I have other Amateur Radios on 2 meter and 70cm and this is the only radio that breaks squelch with CTCSS Tone Squelch Set on several frequencies with data sounds. It...

    Can anyone identify this interference sound?

    For years I've been getting major interference on the lower VHF band around my home indoors and outdoors and around a few house vicinity on my block. Most of the time it sounds like an "open carrier" on hundreds of frequencies in the lower VHF band, however within the last few months I now hear...

    RF Interference and Hybrid Vehicles

    Hey All, Ed (WRCQ448 on GMRS here) I have a really dumb question. I have a close friend (ham op) who is having a big issue with his vehicle pretty much being a faraday cage. It’s a Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. When it switches to hybrid mode pretty much any radio signal that’s not AM/FM/HD cuts...

    RF Noise

    I recently put a 29 LX in my truck as well as a mag mount Wilson 1000. With the truck not running, there is hardly any static even with the RF gain cranked up. But with the truck running, the only thing I hear is a popping or cracking sound that's relative to engine rpm. I disconnected the...

    Sweeping Sound on Scanner Listening to Local Police Dispatch

    I've been monitoring my local police dispatch frequency for my city which is obviously on a repeater. Each time someone talks, whether it be a dispatcher on a base station or a police officer on their mobile/handheld, there is this constant "sweeping" like sound. Like the sound a broom would...

    What's possible with this setup? How/when to improve?

    I've just started exploring radio, and I'm totally captivated by how it works and what you can do with it. Unfortunately, I'm so new, I don't know if my setup is working well - maybe I'm doing something stupid like using the wrong antenna and don't know it - so I'm asking for some general...
