Good News!!  I just received the email from Jessica at Uniden but when I called to place the order, I learned they are back-ordered( 550 Units) and are not scheduled to arrive until Nov 28, 2008.
So hopefully we will get them.  There is a $10 shipping charge in addition to the antenna.

Larry,
Thank you for your inquire. I apologies for the information you may haven been given. But You are able to order the antenna for this model. They part your needing is part number BATY0461001 Cost is 27.16. This part is on back order. If the jack that the antenna screws on to is also damaged you most likely can buy this part but there are no instructions on how to install it.
To send the unit in due to the jack being the damaged part. You would be asked to box the unit up attaching a note explaining the problems your having along with a check or money order for the flat rate repair fee of 59.95. This amount includes all parts labor and return shipping. The unit will then carry a 90 day warranty.

What type of ariel do i need for uniden ubc92xlt scanner


Are you looking to replace the antenna on the unit or hook it up to a larger separate antenna?

The antenna connector should be a standard BNC, there are a range of antennas to choose from either way.

Broke my antenna for my Uniden bear tracker bct2 what can i use to replace it ?


The BCT-2 uses your car FM antenna ! Or go to Radio Shack or a wrecking yard and just buy a used FM antenna ! Be sure to get the whole thing including the antenna lead with the factory end ! Don't Cut The Antenna Lead !

I have tried to adjust my squelch but all i hear is loud static in between transmissions


  • Hi, I can help.

  • If your getting transmissions then the receive is working.If your squelch is not adjusting out then it is possible your antenna, or the connector, is not working right. Hand held scanner antennas are the same across the board as for frequency use. The connector your antenna uses is a standard BNC connector. So your antenna is really universal which mean you don't have to go to Uniden and pay top dollar for their antenna.


  • Now it is possible the squelch knob is giving you trouble. but I would see if you can borrow an antenna just to try from anyone you know that has a hand held scanner. As long as their scanner works well with that antenna it should on yours too. If it don't then check the connector for the antenna on the scanner and make sure it is not loose. You can open the scanner and just eyeball the connections and make sure no soldier joints are not cold.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

I have a UBC72XLT scanner which I sometimes use with a external roof mounted antenna. Recently while connecting this antenna to the scanner there was a static discharge. The performance is now way down so...


You can contact the Uniden customer service department via email by following this link:
http://www.uniden.com/repair/info.cfm
But the cost of repair will likely exceed the value of your scanner. I routinely see used and refurbished BC72XLT scanners for sale on eBay in the $50 range.

Ive got a Uniden BC248 CLT Base Scanner. In the back of it, there are two holes for input/output of some sort, What is the diference in the am radio antenna vs. the antenna ?


Your scanner has four connections on the back. Looking at the rear, from left to right, are the power jack (10 volts AC, you need an adapter for this), an external speaker jack, the AM antenna connection, and the scanner antenna jack.

The AM antenna jack is for the reception of AM radio station signals. The scanner antenna jack is for police/fire etc, as well as FM signals.

In case you don't have a manual for your radio, it is available for free here:

Will a close hanger work as an antenna on my uniden bc144xl scanner?


nope! buy a good anntenna that'll hook to the connection...you shouldn't need a big rooftop unit.. a simple antenna like on a portable should work fine.
