Well I just picked up 46.500 for a fire call. When scanning my preprogrammed 46.??? frequencies my radio locks on and just static, then a minute or two later another 46.??? frequency comes on and nothing but static. it seems as if they are changing or testing something, it just does not seem right. What is your location and are you getting them?
I'm in Schuylkill haven, just outside of Pottsville.
Did you move your scanner to different locations, and outside the building? Perhaps it is just interference from around your house. Lowband frequencies like that are very sensitive to interference which I have found out the hard way.
Well no I havn't changed the location, but i did change the antenna to a RS800 mhz. I put the previous antenna back on and I am still having the same problems. The radio locks on to a preprogrammed 46.xxx frequency, and all i get is static. Then just moments later it happens again on a slightly higher 46.xxx and on and on. I have 6 programmed in and none are working correctly. I've even tried different scanners and it is the same. I'll give it a day or two and see what happens. I was hoping someone else was having the same problem so i could rule out a scanner issue.
