I'm new with this radio so this maybe normal operation. Today while I was working the local ham repeaters on Ch-A and my local Public Safety on Ch-B, I was hearing a popping sound when one channel (A) was scanning and (B) was stopped on a transmission. The popping sound was in synch with the frequencies flashing by on Channel A. Is this normal? I have attached an audio recording. Channel A is scanning and B is listening to a transmission on the Sheriff’s frequency. You will clearly hear the popping sound.

Update: This also happens when using external speakers or headphones. Also after talking to a friend of mine, he says this could also be a freq interference issue. In trouble shooting more the 444Hz freqs in Ch-A are the ones causing the popping sound. Once I removed them (Skip) from the scan, I no longer heard the popping.
