Do any other 396T scanner owners hear a ssssssssss-like hiss in the back ground on their 396T ,I cant stand the noise in the background,my dad has the nascar scanner and its easier to use and doesnt have as bad as a receive issue as mine has.They both are like a year old....
I put on 155.910 clifton PD and its down the street,whyz there a hiss????

hiss on my 396.audio power is not the greatest.but considering the small unit i guess the speaker does a adequate job.on my psr-500 the audio is very good.on a par with a commercial ht.also the "squelch tail" elimination is very nice.it does however suffer from a hiss.nothing new to gre product's such as the pro-97.
don't feel bad.i could be nit picky about the most expensive radio's too.no such thing as perfection.

GRE makes this?!Ahhhhh now I know why!
I had a gre superconverter back in the day,that did the same.Can you recommend a radio that doesnt do this and has the same features?

I don't have a hiss on mine, but I live with-in about 10 miles of most everything I am receiving so my reception is great. It does sounds better with head phones but that is because of the small speaker. No hiss here.
