Anybody else hearing the static and squeals and other noises on SB system 6,7 and 8? I mostly listen to Redlands PD and sheriff in Highland and Yucaipa. I heard a lot of dispatches with static, weird squeals, 10-1s etc. I've even heard several dispatchers ask the mobiles if they are hearing the static. Seemed to start a couple months ago.

Not sure what the squeals are, never heard anything like that before over a repeater, almost like a squelch tail sometimes. Doesn't sound like cross channel audio. :confused:

I've heard it on 2 different scanners and when listening to other feed online so I don't think it's my gear.

Probably external interference getting into the local site in Redlands. It's a known problem, probably a cellular BDA in someone's house.

Thanks. I've worked on a few BDAs, they can be intermod farms for sure.
