    This is an odd one but it may be a feature, the documentation on these radio is a little basic.

    I quite like the radio, it does everything I ask of it as I am mainly and HF user I only use it for local nets. When I have a quiet station it can be very noisy with a lot of static but if I short- press the power button (long press is power off) the sound comes through a lot clearer and cleaner. Once the person stops transmitting the radio seems to go back to quiet/noisy mode so that when they come back on I have to press the power button again.

    Does anyone know what this is?

    Thanks

    It sounds like maybe you are hearing dual receive, And the squelch needs to be set a little tighter on the unused channels VFO.

    Good Luck.
