Has anyone experienced a problem with the VX-8R where when monitoring two two frequencies at the same time on the A & B band (without radio) that the B Band experiences some sort of interference?  It doesn't happen when monitoring only one frequency on either the A or B band, just when monitoring both at the same time.

Read the "Dual Receive Notice" on page 18 of the manual. This is an issue with any dual receive radio with both receivers tuned to the same band. Certain combinations of the A and B bands will interfere with each other. Squelch attenuation can often help with this if it is available. I am not sure if it is on the VX8.
