I am NEW to scanning but have managed to have programmed local South Carolina frequencies (most on Motorolla II). Whenever I am scanning, whatever I am listening to (whether in "hold" or not), the signal drops off, for a split second, every two seconds. It is enough to lose words, or at the minimum, a part of a word. Thus, when listening to a continuous transmission (one longer than two seconds), the audio cuts out for a split second. Am I doing something wrong, or is this the way things are? My dumb.
