VHF Radio speaker noise
I just installed a new Uniden UM625c VHF radio. Even after I set the squelch to stop background noise, there remains a slight amount of noise coming from the speaker.
This seems wrong. The older VHF radios I have owned have not done this; the speaker was completely quiet when the squelch was set above the background noise level, unless there was a transmission.
The old VHF radio that I replaced did not have any speaker noise like this, and I am using the same antenna and power connections. The only thing different about the installation is that it was easier to leave the old in-line fuse in so I have two in-line fuses, but I don't think that could explain the noise.
What could be causing this low level of speaker noise, even when the squelch is set above the background noise level?
