So guys I’ve been in touch with Petteri in Finland whose idea and skills were in place when he found his cure for the high levels of noise in some locations (not all) on the Grant II and Premium. So I’ve got the $1,000,000 question here that needs to be answered and it’s not that easy when you sit and think about it.
We’ve seen the Bearcat 980 and it’s noise levels. You’ve read on the blog Robert and Petteri reasons why there is noise and what is the cure.
*So, is it better to match the receive on the Bearcat 980 thus making the receive lower so not fine tuned as before? Or is it better to leave it as is.
*Not all people get noise, it is not the same everywhere and when adjusted it can or could mean lower noise but also lower incoming receive as in effect the radio is “dumbed down” But this is also not sure as Petteri modified radio was quite sensitive in receive.
Also remember this is chit chat, no official word from anyone at all. Not any single comment other than hits on the statistics.
I ask as a user, got 3 radios all boxed, all with noise and all doing nothing. But go sit on an island and the radio will be I guess quiet the same as is the case with the Lincoln II. Now retired as backlights died.
So is it dumb the receive like we’ve had mentioned before, leave it as is and hope people use them away from noises.

We are balanced here, so a modified, a non modified and a radio used in the mobile
Or do we say Grant II is sold as a mobile radio so if used at home it maybe does not work due to noise? So not usable. Guess need send my 3 back to Markus as can’t use them, and I’m living in a house not a warehouse to store stuff that can’t be used.
Mobile Radio: Don’t use at home as maybe gets noise, if gets noise and your not a mobile station return it for refund as not fit to use as a base station. But: If gets no noise at home then use it.
I’ll add here comments of those who’ve wrote to me:
Ondrej Trebic: Happy your AE5890EU has no noise as Grant II was unusable due to noise. Great you could get the 5890EU
Bernd Konigsee: Sent back 2 radios not fit for purpose
Get it off your chest guys.. Make your feelings known
Andy Doncaster: My Grant Premium gets noise so I’ve already shipped it off to get the modification here copied. Hope it works? When you get it back post the video for us all to see
