Not familiar with that particular model but sounds like you have a priority set a priority channel will do that every 2 seconds. Priority on weather will do it every 5. Search and Close Call will do it as well every 2 seconds. Whichever is turned on turn it off.

Ok that didnt work either it just breaks up in the middle of conversations. The antenna is a new one i bought to try to see if it was the antenna it is like something else is blocking the frequency other than priority. Any help? Any ideas?

Could possibly be a bad BNC connector to your antenna. This would cause your signal to cut in and out.

I think you better double check the close call, priority and weather alert. You have something turned on somewhere.
