      The frequencies are in the 800Mhz trunked Motorola range. When it "hangs" it's
      as if some user has an open keyed up mic. There's a soft hissing in the
      background.

      Squelch is set at 2, I've played with that setting to see if it has any effect..
      no, it doesn't stop the "hanging".
      When the antenas are disconected it does not hang up an any channels.
      Reception is very poor and choppy since the hanging issue began, they're related
      I'm sure. I live in a major metro area and reception has always been strong.
      I just turned on the scanner and recieved nothing for a few moments then some
      brief choppy conversation at 858.2625 then it hangs on that channel, no more
      scanning just hanging.

      I really hope my scanner is not dead but it's looking grim.

      What are some of the frequencies involved?

      What is your exact squelch setting?

      Does it do this without the antenna connected?
