Ok so i thought i had solved the problem with the clipped audio but it seems to still be happening. UPMAN maybe you could help me shed some light on this. im listening to a 700 mhz p25 phase 1 simulcast trunked system and every third or fourth conversation the first second or so of audio is not coming in. so instead of hearing "car 436 10-4" i just hear 4. i have other p25 scanners that don't have this problem. i tried darn near every trick in the book and still no luck. i even had a forum member send his 436 files (Thank you by the way) to compare with and it still was acting up. this is more noticed during rapid back and fourth conversations. again i tried threshold settings squelch settings antennas nfm to fm moving scanner around and also using the current beta firmware. any help would be great. thanks.
