PHNL FEED
« on: December 23, 2010, 04:35:26 PM »
Not sure if it's just extremely quiet there, but im not hearing anything on any of the PHNL feeds. It's connecting ok with a few "time-outs" every minute or so.

Fixed.

Long story short - we need to replace the PC out there and it won't happen until early January some time.  Hopefully we will also be able to fix the crosstalk problem in the process.

For the audio crosstalk problem the feeder may want to try a ground loop isolator which are commonly used to eliminate hum or buzz in audio circuits.

I too had crosstalk problems between two handheld BC92XLT's running my KHWD and ZOA feeds.

Used ferrite chokes on the audio and coax cables and nothing worked until I put a ground loop isolator between the scanner audio output and my USB audio devices. The audio crosstalk disappeared!

The particular model purchased was this: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_10297_GS-Audio-GL301.html
Bought the cheapest one and it did the trick!

Hope this helps?

Thanks Ken...we will definitely put isolators on those inputs.  That should cure the issue.  Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks for the suggestion.  We will give this a try. 

Anyone else have any other suggestions or ideas?

Aloha,
