Is this the weird noise coming from the speaker that everyone is complaining about? It occurs before and after a transmission. Sounds like 2-3 quiet beeps.. Here is a link to the video. Listen closely...

Kind of, but there are SO MANY.

R2D2 is what you can hear with some external speakers. Just get a pair of earbuds and turn the volume all the way down. Plug the earbuds into the external speaker jack and slowly and carefully bring the volume up slightly until you can hear at a normal level.

Then enjoy R2D2!

How did you capture the audio for the YouTube clip?

Thanks for the Quick Reply JamesO. I just recorder my speaker with my iPhone than uploaded to YouTube.

I also get that noise in mine. It was an early one, sent back for the headphone mod.

noise on ext speaker

I get this noise too on my external amplified speaker. Very annoying. Hopefully a firmware fix!

I had similar noise coming from my BCD536HP. I found my noise was do to the SD card. I replaced the original 4GB card with a 16GB and the noise showed up. Switched back to the smaller card and the noise went away.
