Uniden ubc93xlt handheld scanner

My son just bought one of the above, but the sound seems rather scratchy compared to his older cheaper version. Is this normal or could it be the antenna?

SOURCE: I have a uniden ubc73xlt handheld scanner,can't

Try a master rest:
If the scanner's display locks up or stops operating
properly, you might need to reset the scanner.
Caution: This procedure clears all the information
you have stored in the scanner. Before you reset the
scanner, try turning it off and on to see if it begins
working properly. Reset the scanner only when you
are sure it is not working properly.
1. Turn off the scanner.
2. While holding down 2, 9, and Hold, turn on the
scanner. It takes about 3 seconds to initialize
and CLEAR appears.

SOURCE: i cant tune my Uniden BC60XLT-1 Handheld Scanner

you need to know the frequency you want to listen in on like local fire police and sheriff and ambulance channels you can go to bear-cat web site and they have a company there that will give you the scanner frequencies in your area code so you can store then to listen to them, you can also get the Freq. for the 1.2 million UN peace keepers in the U.S. as well. However you need to im put the frequencies manually and you need the manual so go to the web site for the uniden it's and read how to store the freq. codes in the scanner. it will tell you how many you can store I think it's up to 10.

Sounds like there is a short in the battery. If it is the battery, replacements are available online anywhere from 15$ (if you by bulk) to 75$. I found one from radio shack with shipping it ended up just short of 40$ and had it in 5 days over a weekend. You can also get the battery part and if he is handy with a solder gun, he can fix rebuild it himself. I didn't have the time to do that myself.

It is usually a good little scanner and fairly easy to use. My old battery was doing the same thing, but I caught it after about an hour before the case began melting.

Can i buy a scanner today to pickup cellular phones frequencies? Dee

No. Monitoring cellular phone conversations is against federal laws, and no manufacturer offers scanners with that capability to the public. Even older, pre-ban scanners that would seem capable of cellular reception are analog only, and therefore not capable of receiving today's digital signals.

Unbearable noise after every radio message - squelch doesn't help

Doesn't sound like you're doing anything wrong. Either the scanner is defective or your locale is using some kind of oddball system that's causing the noise. Take it back, show them what it's doing. If possible, try another scanner in the store and see if it does the same thing. You should be entitled to a refund, exchange, or full credit towards a different model . . .

...ok, here is your owner's manual:

Page 33 of that document begins a discussion of 'operations programming'..and there are other chapters for related functions.

Your specification sheet (on that document above) begins at page
56 - 58 does not mention any method of programming your Uniden
handheld using an external computer or data system. Check later
models from Uniden if that is desired. Yes saving frequencies and
reprogramming a handheld can be done and several agencies often
add security codes for their handhelds as well.
