This morning I turned on my BCD436HP (my BC 780 XLT is always on) and made this recording.

My BCD436HP is only set to Verona, NJ and they are EDACS. The transmission is from the Essex County Mutal Aid Fire system.

Timeline:
0:00 to 1:20 BCD436HP
1:21 to 2:18 BC 780 XLT (you still hear in the background the static from the BCD436HP)
2:22 to 4:05 BCD436HP

Notice from 2:51 on the static at the end goes away on the BCD436HP. Why? So it is working properly all of a sudden.

Turned it off and on a few times and it was fine. Turned it back on again and back to end of transmission static.

Ugh! This seems like it is easily fixable (firmware). I just hope sooner than later as the static is louder than the transmissions themselves and very annoying.

Hey, is your scanner set to tone search? I found that having it on scan vs programming a NAC / CTCSS eliminated the problem on my analogue freqs. That may help...HOWEVER, I still get the off squelch blast on our regional Bell Fleetnet P25 system.

I get the same intermittent problem. And only on the Verona NJ EDACS system.

As mentioned in the primary thread for this issue, we will address this in a firmware update.
