Background noise problem with motorola radius cp200 and also crackling status during transmissions
If the crackling and static are coming from the radio, it could mean 1) Something in your environment is putting out RF (radio frequency waves). 2) You have an old battery. 3) You are at the edge of the radio's range. 4) You have a bad speaker in the radio.
Possible solutions for you could be:
1) Have the radios reprogrammed to have Private Line (PL). This would block out RF noise on your frequency. Also, within the factory if there are devices putting out RF noise, there may be some solutions for them.
2) Replace old batteries. (Try a known good battery and see if it helps.)
3) Check to see if you have the same problem when radios are within a closer range. If it is a range problem, education yourself and other users to hold the radio upright (perpendicular) to the ground. You will get the best range. Tilting the radio can reduce range as much as 2/3s. Even the bodyfluid of a person wearing the radio can absorb range.
4) See if you have the same problem with another radio, or if the crackling static is just with the one radio. It may need repaired.
Another solution for you might be a noise canceling remote speaker mic. This would put the speaker of the radio up on your lapel. And these mics also have some noise/wind canceling ability.
There are a few programming things you could have your local dealer try. They may be able to tighten up the squelch and knock out some of the noise.
