Simple off-channel interference, tell the scanner to skip or lock out the frequency, unless that's how it sounds on every frequency. If it does sound like that on every frequency, you may have a busted speaker, use an external speaker instead.

BPR40 Receiving a static reception when someone is talking

Several things need to be checked. Fully charged battery. Antenna, make certain it s tight and unbroken. Wiggle the antenna while receiving, if reception improves, it is the antenna or the antenna jack. Then wiggle the on/off vol switch, same thing, if reception improves, it is broken or needs to be resoldered. Then I check the speaker. Speakers gather metal particles, as they get more and more, the speaker distorts and it sounds like static. Use a powerful magnet, run it over the speaker grill and see if anything comes out. I put plastic wrap on the magnet for easy cleaning. It could still be a bad speaker. Last, I check programming. All of this is done at our shop regularly and I suspect most radio shops follow the same procedures, maybe in a different order. Post if this helps or not.

Why is my iPhone 4 say no service when other strait talk member have service in the same area

Remember that antenna issue that the ip4 had? Sounds like that antenna problem to me. I heard cover cases made the reception even worse. Try to take the cover off in that no service area and hold the phone with the tips of your fingers and see if the reception is better. If it is, go to the apple store and ask how they resolved the antenna block problem with your model of I phone. Good luck

It's most likely a line problem, not a phone problem.

Try isolating by plugging another phone to the line. If you still here the bad reception, then the line is dirty and you should report this to the telephone line provider.

Toshiba 42H 94 speker sounds like its underwater

There may be a fault with the speaker driver, or the output stage circuits, or the audio decoding circuits.

Without proper troubleshooting, it is impossible to pin-point the exact fault.
