Question about Radio Shack Pro-97 Handheld Scanner

Distorted The voices on my scanner are so distorted that you can't even understand what is being said. I've tried other frequencies but they're all that way.

Are you using batteries or an AC/DC adapter? The only time I've seen the voices get distorted on my Pro 97 was when the batteries were about to die. If you're using an AC/DC adapter in some way to power yours, maybe there is something electronically wrong with your Pro 97. This is not intended to get you to throw it away.

Well it sounds like you need a mono block amplifier for the subwoofers. Subwoofers are ment for low frequency. If you try to run regular audio through the subwoofer the sound will become distorted at a high volume. If you have a crossover on the amplifier try putting it on LP. Also do not exceed the RMX rateing on the subwoofer because if you do they will also distort. If you try adding the mono block on to it and it is still doing it you may also be running to much power to the subwoofers.

Is it so even at lower volumes?

Are you sure it's the sub distorting and not the front or center speakers?

If you designate them incorrectly as Large (which tells the receiver they CAN effectively produce bass frequencies) they will probably distort in the presence of low frequencies.

Uniden BC80XLT Radio Scanner distorted


It may very well be an interference problem. While the scanner may not have moved, there are many items around it that may be the source of interference. Think back to the time when the interference started. Did you install something new around that time frame? Perhaps a new computer, a new monitor, some new CFL light bulbs? Any of these items can cause interference. The other possibility is that the interference is coming from outside your home or office. While these sources may not be able to be corrected, you can do a few things to help reduce the effects of the intererence:
1. Move the scanner to a new location. Radio waves are tricky little things. You may be able to find a location where the interference is weaker, but your intended signal is still adequate.
2. Try moving the antenna. If using the rubber antenna that came with the scanner, try laying the scanner flat instead of upright.

The other thing you may want to do is check the frequency with another scanner. There is always the remote possibility that the problem is with the transmitter, and not with your scanner at all.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Distorted voices


if it sounds garbled it may be due to digital communication. most scanners cannot recieve the digital communication. that is why you hear a garbled inaudible sound from it.
