I'm getting the same noise on 449.400 MHz with analog transmissions going over the top of it.

Just started using my analogue scanner an i'm picking up transmissions on 449.400 MHz but with the whooshing sounds behind it I can't make out what is being said, I know the word 'Warehouse' was mentioned but that's about it. For someone reason my TRX-1 is refusing to pick it up...

it can't scan ranges but i usually find frequencies via SDR.
I found out you can scan ranges using the opengd77 firmware, if you hold the up arrow for long whilst in VFO mode you are presented by a frequency range in which you can set to scan and clicking the up arrow again commences the scan.

I have also found the sweep display useful activated in VFO mode by holding long press the hash key. It mimics an SDR/panadapter display by sweeping through whilst showing signal strength.

Probably Nexedge - my radios make that strange chuffing noise.
