Has anyone in Geauga County had any issues with the control channel 856.0375 it seems that after a transmission the scanner does not continue to scan it just stays on that frequency and sounds like there is an open mic with no talking. Then you have to push the scan button to continue scanning till it stops on tha frequency again. All other control channel frequencies continue to scan after a transmision with no problems.

Thanks,

I haven't noticed any problems with my radios.

I put the control channel back on 856.0375, let us know if you still have an issue. Also report back what type of scanner your using.

You may have a birdie or interference near that frequency causing it to hang.

Try adjusting your squelch or moving the radio or antenna a little.

I recommend an 800 MHz. antenna if you haven't one already.

So far this evening everything seems to be scanning A-ok. I'll report back if I seem to have an issue again also the radios I'm using are a Uniden BCD 996XT, a BCD396xt, a BCD996T and a Radioshack Pro-96 Thanks for responding to my question.

Listen to scanner this evening uniden 996xt (Wendsday night) and the same problem is happening 856.0375 after transmission just a sound like there was an open mic. it's just on this frequency all others are fine. I even took my hand held uniden bcd396xt and my radio shack pro-96 and walked around in my yard and it just stayed on that frequency till I hit scan. I'm clueless at whats happening....

jludlow what's your location? We don't need your address, just a general location.
I have an idea on what may cause this but I need to know where it's happening.

Also on your Uniden scanners check the 'Set End Code' setting:

Easier to Read BCD996XT Digital Scanner Manual

If it's not turned on please turn it on for analog or analog+digital & report back if it corrects your problem.

Not sure if you got my last post I live in Middlefield Village and I set the End Set Code to Analog and Digital and so far all seems good!

Thanks,

System problem fixed, you should be able to turn off the end code detect & have no issues now.
