Hi All...

I have a pro-197. When listening, I fairly often hear a part of a transmission being dropped. Even if its a strong, crisp sounding transmission, it just cuts out a real brief part of the transmission. I get this on trunked or non communications. And I have tried firmware versions 1.7 and 1.9, same thing. I've tried with an ST2 antenna and the telescopic, no change. Please listen in and you'll see what I mean.

Any tips for me? Thank-you in advance.

Check to see if you have some priority turned on, like channel, TG or weather.
Ahhhh... yes I do... Weather... I also have priority set on Fire and Police channels. Should I not tango with priorities? And I was hoping to get weather alerts but if thats the problem, I can opt not to use it.

Thanks!!

Priorities get checked every so often and that will cause the problem you have. That's up to you, I don't use them. :)
