Question about Uniden TRUNKTRACKER III

1 Answer

Scanner problem or just interference?

While scanning or searching the 144 to 174 MHz area, the scanner will pick up a rapid, static, chopping sound. Not often, but enough to be a pain. This happens in the car and out in the woods away from any nearby electrical devices. Data skip function does not affect this noise. Anyone know if it's some type of data interference, or a scanner malfunction? Thanks... Hank

I was given a uniden police scanner and I need to know the frequencies and how to get the static out. . Thank you . Rhonda Hansen


First thing to try is to change the "squelch" setting. If you squelch is set wrong, you will hear static all the time and the scanner may not scan. Turn the squelch until you no longer hear the static and the scanner scans.

How do you program a Regency Programmable Scanner R1070?


Regency R1070 Frequencies for people with no manual
These are the ranges it supports.

30-50 Mhz
144-174 Mhz
440-512 Mhz

To make it scan, first set the range by pressing Manual and then Search. It will ask for the LOwer end and the UPper end of the range. Enter them, press Scan and then Search, and it will start scanning. When it locks and you want to keep going, hit Search again. You can press Delay to stop at a channel temporarily. To save a frequency in memory, hit Manual and pick a number, then type it out and hit Enter. When you have a few channels saved and you want to check up on each of them, Scan scans through memory. The Lock button is to skip a particular channel while scanning.

That's pretty much the whole manual right there.

I get static so bad that I can't squelch it down enough to get rid of the noise. Traveling out on the highway it usually works ok. But when I enter a town the static gets badusually around power lines. How...


You could install a filter in the line between the antenna and the transciever. I reccommend a high-pass or band-pass filter set for the 27 MHz band to remove any interference at different frequencies. Also, some older TVs can cause interference to CB radios if they are close. If this doesn't work, the radio may be poorly sheilded or your area may have implemented the broadband power line initiative (BPL). This produces a strong buzz of noise that obliterates all weak to moderate radio signals between 2 and 80 MHz (CB being at 27 MHz).

How do i convert to 800 mhz


You didn't mention the make or model of your scanner, but if it's not equipped with 800MHz coverage from the factory, there is no way to "convert" it to pick up that frequency range. For a list of reasonably priced scanners that will meet your needs, visit www.ScannerMaster.com

I have a bc350c 800 mhz and cant get nothing but static how to i get the police channels to work


Try tuning known frequencies, such as the NOAA weather channels, to verify the working condition of your scanner. If it picks them up, you don't have your local police system/frequencies programmed properly. If there's no reception, even on NOAA, you have an antenna or receiver problem that may need professional attention.

In case you need it, you can download/print the manual for your scanner here:

My neighbor's cb radio comes in on several frequencies.


All electronic devices are required to receive unwanted interference but not cause enterference them thats the best answer I can give you. Your neighbor might be operating with greater than 4 watts allowed by the FCC for citizen band transceivers.

Static in my panasonic telephones


A possible cause for the static in your cordless phones could be dimmer switches around the area of your phone that causes static. Turn the switches completely off (not just turned down) and see if the static leaves. You can replace the dimmers with regular switches if that clears your static. If it does not, another trace for interference: you will have to take a portable radio and turn it to AM 550 mHz and tune it to the loudest crackling noise. Carry the radio around looking for the loudest static interference. Could be a loose connection in a receptacle or panel box. Any small malfunction can cause static on wireless devices.

Motorola T5500 Scanning problem


Most likely it is stopping at a channel which has RF (radio frequency) activity. The activity doesn't have to be another radio with someone talking. It could simply be something transmitting on the same MHz. The only way to know for sure is to try the radios in a different location (as in moving away from the problem). If you want to avoid this "noise" you can turn on your interference eliminator, and it should block out anyone transmitting on the frequency (unless they set their interference eliminator to the same code as yours.)

If the noise continues when you try the radios in a different location (more than 5-10 miles away), then you will have to investigate a problem with the radios themselves.
