First take your scanner away from its currant soroundings and try it in someone elses house cause there is so much interference out there eg worn electric motors in fridges or heating pumps or plasma tv and certain 30" and above tvs, that one could even come from nerxt doors tv. next thing to try is put in an earth spike directly from the scanner to the ground ( has to be mud) or move your arial but try it elsewhere first then youl know if its in or close to your house.

Yaesu ft-857 squelch problem


Your RF gain control needs to be turned all the way up to be able to receive signals and if you are on one of the HF bands like 40 meters or any HF band the squelch control needs to be all the way off! You do not use squelch on HF! When on VHF or UHF then you would rotate the squelch control just to the point that the background noise stops and go no further. Higher squelch settings will only block weak signals and your radio will be deaf! Squelch control rotated just to the point the background noise stops! NO SQUELCH ON HF. Turn the squelch all the way off on HF!

I can't turn off the squelch on my Radio Shack Digital Trunking scanner.


On all channels, or on one channel ? Some channels are "birdie" channels, check your user manual. Others are problem channels receiving false signals from computers, monitors, receivers, internet equipment, FAX machines, etc. If your in conventional mode, if in Digital mode the squelch is set by the processor, and I don't believe the squelch has any effect in that mode.

What did you mean by change the squelch?


The squelch control gets rid of the hissing on a blank channel. Finda blank channel, turn up the squelch control until the hissing stops. The scanner should then scan the channels and stop on a busy one.

Radio shack noaa desk scanners squelch sound unit wont scan


If the squelch is on, there can't be a loud noise. Either the sqelch is completely off or you are not tuned to a station. NOAA broadcasts are continuous, not intermittent

How can i stop the squelch ive tryed turning the sqcuelch doesnt help


Plug the AC adapter into the back of the scanner and into a wall electrical outlet. Screw the antenna into the receptacle on the back of the scanner (extend the antenna to full length for best reception).

  • 2 Set the squelch level to allow signals to be heard by turning the squelch knob counterclockwise. Rotate the volume knob clockwise until you hear static. Slowly turn the squelch knob clockwise until the static noise disappears.
  • 3 Start programming frequencies into the scanner by pressing the "Manual" button.
  • 4 Press the up arrow or down arrow key until the channel you wish to program is visible on the display.
  • 5 Use the numbers on the keypad to enter the frequency for the local transmitter you wish to receive.
  • 6 Press the "E" key to complete the process of entering the frequency.
  • 7 Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each additional frequency you wish to monitor.
  • 8 Press the "Scan" key to start the scanning process. The scanner stops on a channel when it detects a signal strong enough to hear over the squelch setting. Two seconds after the signal stops, the scanning process resumes.

    I cant get my 350a to lock in on a channel when its scanning in the private mold.it will try sometimes but wont hold them. I can push the hold button and hear crystal clear in the private mold. help...


    If you haven't already done so, while scanning in the PRIVATE mode, turn the SQUELCH control down slowly until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise. Then turn the SQUELCH up slowly until scanning resumes. This should set the threshold so that the scanner will stop on an active frequency.

    Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


    you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise

    Motorola FV500 2 way radio can send/cant receive


    Do you hear the Beeps on the speaker? Check for the QT and the code squelch are the same in both radios, try to set code squelch in "0". Make sure that the radio is not receiving or the other one is not transmiting, with two radios will see the same.
