I recently purchased a 996XT, and after struggling to get it programmed and get thru the goofy manual, I have it up and running. Issue is that communications seem to chop off prematurely (even for strong signals) and the squelch seems to have no impact regardless where set. What am I doing wrong? Priority is off, so that is not what is doing it. Experimenting to no avail.

Need a lot more info here.

Analog or Digital reception?
Frequency band?
Trunked or Conventional service?
What happens on a Weather or FM broadcast?

What service are you speficially trying to listen to? Where, what system?

If the problem happen every few seconds or maybe you are suffering from digital multi path issues?

Weather Priority, Regular Priority and Close Call can possibly cause issues.

Is there anything on the screen that shows the Weather Priority enabled?

On page 9 of the owner's manual it shows "WX" just to the right of the 5 signal strength bars which is located in the upper right of the screen. The picture is of the 536 I guess the 436 is the same but do not know for sure.
