I have the same problem with some frequencies on my Pro-97, I noticed this happens mostly on freqs with DCS codes programmed. The DCS code will make the frequency to pause every few seconds, very annoying! Turning it off, or putting it on DCS search gets rid of the problem.mrrandb said:I have a Pro-97. For some frequencies, the CTCSS or DCS tones cause transmissions to cut out every few seconds. Why? Does it happen with a lot of scanners?
In other words the signal is too strong?N1BHH said:If a transmitter has over-deviation, that will cause what sounds like dropouts of a signal. The PL or DPL may be overdriven by voice peaks causing clipping of your reception.
Not necessarily. Certain [EDIT: possibly overmodulated] voice patterns will do it, too.mrrandb said:In other words the signal is too strong?
