Has anyone noticed the speaker hissing ( have to hold it up to ear) when the radio is on with no audio ..

Mine sounds like white noise or hiss and it is a steady hiss when the radio is scanning or even when manually on one channel.

i didn't notice it at first, but today at work I had it on the desk and kept hearing something and finally figured out what it was...

Wonder how much drain on the battery it causes..?

Yeah, it doesn't seem to strong, and I get outstanding battery life with the maha powerex batteries, and since there is always a spare setting waiting, I don't worry about this.

On a side note I thought it was interesting about you noticing it at work, since I too have found that desktop listening at work can be the best scanning time to find things.
