Hi you need an external aerial for the scanner, your computer is a box with millions of switches all going of at the same time so massive interference.I had the same problem until I got a decent outdoor aerial. Regards Lou

Is your computer in a metal case or plastic?

Hi are you using a CRT monitor, I get loads of problems with my scanner when I have my CRT on.  Most of the time I use a Laptop with no problems at all.

THere were a few, ex dealing room, metal cased monitors sold at radio rallies a couple of years ago.
I think they handled VGA, but you had to make up a cable.
Size was about 14 inch, but you could put them side by side and they did not create cross unit interference.
Very little RF output either.

Best view for RB is North of a line between EGNT and EGNC  - includes OTA and Spade, to EGPH above 7500ft.   Can be TRUE mobile with Mobile Broadband feed to Network.
