Hopefully the DSL outage will be short-lived and the feeds will be back some time today.
Working fine for me. Although I notice the reception keeps cutting out momentarily, like for a second, every few seconds, on all the approach frequencies. Sounds similar to what happens when you have the priority function turned on ? DJ
I'll have to take a listen but I wonder if it could be the interference we've been having.
QuoteI'll have to take a listen but I wonder if it could be the interference we've been having.It's not the regular interference. Now on 127.400 I was hearing loud beeping and what sounded like a police or fire frequency, but just coming on intermittent and lasting a few seconds coinciding with the beeping sound. DJ
It sounds like someone's walkie talkie more than a police frequency.
For now we just have to put up with the minor nuisance.
QuoteFor now we just have to put up with the minor nuisance.The occasional beeping isn't that bad, but the constant cutting out every few seconds makes the radios difficult to listen to. Oh well, standing by. (Another reason I really don't like BC350's). DJ
I do hear the microsecond cutout, which does indicate that priority got turned on somehow. But your threshold for annoyance does seem rather low.
QuoteIt sounds like someone's walkie talkie more than a police frequency.Same thing on departure 135.900, you get the beeping which sounds like some sort of internal radio function (priority beep ?), and then I've heard what sounds like some guys doing maintenance on a golf course. DJ
Yes, this needs to get fixed but I have no remote access to the scanner and the feeder is not going to be home for a couple of weeks. The scanners in use there are fairly complex so even when he is there it will be a challenge to talk him through it over the phone.Maybe we need a webcam there. Dave
