      We've had a similar problem here in CT on several of the CSP sites. It's
      almost as if there is a low level carrier holding the squelch open following
      a transmission. Found that we needed to enable the End-code detection or
      perhaps disable it, I forget,

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

      Squelch is set at 2, I've played with that setting to see if it has any
      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
      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
      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?
