I have a UH036SX so not sure if its exactly the same. If you open up the unit, there is a large black potentiometer near the base of the antennae. I found if I wound this counterclockwise by approximately quarter of a turn with a small flat blade screwdriver it reduced the squelch level to a better level. I suggest wind it down until the static is gone, then increase slightly to give the best level.

    This just makes the RX level quieter not adjust it.

  • Rob Law Feb 16, 2014

    This only lowers the volume of the squelch not adjusts it, In my case anyway.

Squelch is open all the time on uniden bc350a scanner


Hi,

Have you turned the squelch knob all the way in both directions, to see if that helps?

If so, then you have to replace that squelch knob unit, with a newbie.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Peter

The scanner is stuck in open squelch


Rotate the knob counter clockwise to close the squelch. If this does not work, remove the knob by pulling it off gently and make sure the "pot" is turning with the knob. Verify the knob and "pot" are not damaged.

I don't have the manual for my Uniden Bearcat BC 855 scanner.


You can download/print the complete manual for your scanner by following the link below. It's a free download, and it provides detailed programming instructions. If you're programming a channel that is "empty" (showing 000.0000) just enter your frequency. Empty channels automatically show LOCKOUT but it clears with programming. The squelch setting will vary according to the strength of the signals you receive. Once you start scanning, turn the squelch down until scanning stops and you hear a hissing sound, then turn the control up slowly until scanning resumes.

Unable to quit the squelch


This is an internal problem that can only be repaired by a technician familiar with Bearcat scanners. If you live near NJ, call 973-831-5900.

Scanner wont scan


provided you turned the squelch know and it didnt help, i would trace back from the squelch control to the first and second transistor you come to and that should be the squelch circuit. if you know how to check them with an ohm meter you can find out which one it is, if not you can just replace them both for under 5 bucks.

Constant Rx


Hi, It would initially seem that your auto squelch is malfunctioning. With the squelch apparently way down, the RX indicator would automatically appear as if you are receiving something (even if it were just noise). Assuming no other fault except the auto squelch, a possible workaround is to use any of the 38 CTCSS codes both in receive and transmit. With the CTSS activated (TX/RX), even with squelch all the way down or auto off/defective, you will not hear anything except a radio transmission with the correct CTSS code. Again, this will only work of course with just the auto squelch muting problem. Any other problem/fault and this method may not work. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn out or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
