Garbled audio is a problem with P25 simulcast system, here is a thread that talks about it: http://forums.radioreference.com/uniden-performance-technical-topics/285999-uniden-p25-simlucast-possible-solution-ponder.html#post2146260
Here is a link talking about something that will help with the audio a bit: http://forums.radioreference.com/uniden-thread-archives/154472-bcd396xt-p25-adjustment.html#post1131261
New radios from Uniden are, according to reports, handling this better.
Now for you 'POPa' flashing, i have no clue.

What haws helped the garble or voice sounding like they are under water, is changing the modulation from nfm to fm. You can either change each channel or globally do it with freescan by clicking the scanner tab, and hitting the band plan tab. Change the 848 and up to fm, then for the vhf i changed the tab vhf high band to fm. Several people have said this didn't work while others said it worked for them. It a simple "try" to get a fix. But this has fixed the audio for me.
