Squelch does not work

When unit is turned on, it's quiet for a few seconds, and then a loud
noise appears, and does not go away. Only one of the pair does this,regardless of the channel assisgnment. It seems like the squelch is not working. I do not have an owner's manual. Conair FRS214

This is a confusing website. But my problem is with a pair of Uniden FRS 420 two way radios. Have replaced batteries, gone through manual, have every option set properly but still have no reasonable...


Are you stating the volume is not loud enough when someone talks or just idling. If if has a squelch knob turn it til it makes a hissing noise or rushing noise. then back to where the noise just quits. This is the proper setting. Then when someone talks increase volume to listening level you choose. If this does not work take them back and get your money back.

Radio shack noaa desk scanners squelch sound unit wont scan


If the squelch is on, there can't be a loud noise. Either the sqelch is completely off or you are not tuned to a station. NOAA broadcasts are continuous, not intermittent

How can i hear what they are saying without that awful loud sound when they arent saying anything. cause when i turn the volume down i cant hear what they are saying


Turn up your SQUELCH button when no one is talking until the static noise just goes away.

Now your set will remain quiet until someone talks.

If you set the squelch too high it will also cut out the people talking, so always try to have it set just slightly above the background static level.

Good luck.

My Squelch on my Cobra C.B isnt working anymore, Does that mean anything or do i need a new C.B?


It means either the knob or something in the squelch circuit has gone bad. Doesn't mean that you cannot use the radio, you will just hear static all the time when no one is talking. If the static bothers you, you can always back the RF gain down a bit. That will quiet the noise, but lower you receive range. meaning you won't hear as far away.

Do the Uniden walkie talkie (UHO36SX) on listening mode (RX) normally give out a loud rushing noise? It would be impossible to have it on in a quiet place waiting for someone to talk.


No, the radios should be silent (squelched) when not receiving a transmission. Appliances (computers, televisions, even refrigerators) can generate enough "hash" to break the squelch and give you that "rushing" noise. Make sure that the radios are at least 4 or 5 feet apart, and try moving them to different locations to clear up the problem.

Tempstar a/c condenser screeching noise


Could be the fan motor's bearings. Try turning the fan by hand to see if spins freely or is tight. If it's tight you can try oiling it but that may not work for long.

Constant RX mode on Cobra Microtalk Walke Talke


I have the same walkie talkies and on mine I can hold down the mode/lock button and it will come off of the Rx mode. Also, you should be able to press the talk button and it will come off of the Rx mode.

Recieving problems


turn the RF gain all the way up and leave it there. Also turn the squelch down until you hear white noise, then turn it up just until it goes away.

RF gain is how sensitive your receive is. The higher it is, the more range you have. There really is no need to turn it down ever, unless you are trying to not hear some one out in the distance. Normal operation, RF gain should be all the way up.

Now squelch is used to quiet non signal noise. Like white noise or interference noise, Or other radios with a really weak signal that you can't hear completely any way.

You just want it so it just quiets the fuzz noise. Depending on background interference and the amount of radio traffic, the may have to be adjusted to silence the noise you don't want to hear. When a strong audio signal is received, it will break the squelch, the higher the squelch is set, the stronger the signal needs to be to break it, otherwise it will silence it.
