I was just given a Pro-197 from a coworker today, and upon getting something programmed and downloaded real quick, it was immediately having a problem on VHF. Its as if the squelch is not working. I got to the point where I had the attenuator on, no antenna plugged in and it would still have an "open squelch" on most anything VHF. I have a couple digital trunked systems programmed it will receive those seemingly OK. I've never ran into something like this. All other radios are working fine in the shack. I have another 197 in my mobile and it does not have the same issue, so it seems to be something with this radio. Has anyone seen or heard of anything such as this?
