    Partial and Total signal loss message in error.

    Don't feel bad I get the same thing here on my VIP222. I have to do a hard reset at least 1-2 a week. Very annoying. Signal levels are fine, check switch is good. I'll bet it's a software glitch. My software in the 222 is 5.04

    Which cable to use for receive-only

    If it's working great as is don't fix it. :) All depends what impedence your scanner requires some scanners are 75 ohm. RG6 is 75 ohm cable. If you find out it requires 50 ohm cable a good quality low loss coax is like a LMR400 very low loss and works like a champ. Bob N1WBD
