Question about Uniden Radio Communications
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?

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.

To completely clear out all stored frequencies.
1. Turn off the scanner.
2. While holding down 2, 9 and hold turn on the scanner. It takes about three seconds and you will see the word clear.

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 http://www.uniden.com 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.
