Try entering a known active frequency, rather than just scanning I dont know your location but most airpoort weather beacons transmit every 3 mins for cloud and visibility ""On approach to LA airport Alpha, CAV OK ETC

. Find the frequency of one near you and manually enter it to see whether it is receiving anything at all. If that dosn't work the unit is US meaning un-servicable and needs to be checked out inside. If its new or under warranty return it for replacement/repair.
Internhal section of antenna may be disconnected or broken

There can be two possibilities 1)the antena which you say new is not compitable to the device.check out if its same antenna like your old antenna was. 2)or the other problem is antenna is proper but where the antenna is connected in the device.that antenna connection point is faulty internally that has to be checked to see that is antenna getting internal connection. and the third option is may be the new antenna is faulty or not able to catch the required frequency which the device required.so again replace and check the antenna. ----------- this will help.thanks.keep updated.

    if you had got it replaced the antenna and checked.then its the antenna connection problem.the place where antenna is connected is got internally loose.this happens many times.this can be sometimes repaired if its a loose soldering internally but if its a circuit short problem then its bit difficult to get repaired.
    still check out.whats the actual fault is internally.because as you mentioned the static noise instead of original sound.that is something related either to faulty antenna or the internal port of antenna faulty.or antenna not connected properly.as per you the antenna is replaced and checked.so check out internal port or is the antenna connected loose.
    keep updated.thanks.

Cannot receive weather channel information


Antenna connected? Station off air due to bad weather? Is the 'squelch' set to you hear static, then turn it back just to where it stops hissing? Try that and let me know.

Having major issues with programming my bearcat bc60xlt-1


You'll need to program the radio frequencies into your scanner before it will scan . For a list of frequencies in Anoka County CLICK HERE .
For specific programing instructions for your UNIDEN refer to your owner's manual. They will give you a step by step instruction on how to program the frequencies into your scanner memory (If you need a manual, CLICK HERE
...be sure to select the scanner option on their pull-down menu.
THEN when you have the radio frequencies stored into your scanner, you'll be able to press scan and away you go.
Be sure to adjust the squelch just high enough to eliminate the static...turn the squelch counterclockwise until you hear loud static, then turn Clockwise just enough to silence static...
Let us know if you still have trouble.

Uniden UBC72XLT scanner problem.


The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

Zero Activity


first to check if your scanner receives try the weather station,it that works then check that your squelch control is not set too low, turn it up till the static from a channel that is not transmitting stops.Also check the antenna ,remove it and then put it back on.If none of this works try removeing the batteries for a few minutes and then putting them back in, or reset your scanner according to the instuctions in the users manual.

Scanner static


Use the channel lock out control, unless it is a frequency that you listen to, you may have interference that is causing random static. use a noise filter mechanism to minimize this problem, or buy a specialized scanner antenna that's guaranteed to minimize static.
If no avail, you may need to send it in to a store.

Hope this helps!

Radio Shack Pro Scanner


I know that if you turn your scanner off over a few days you can loose your frequency # or it will lock the channels out. if they or l/o just unlock then. I also know that all police and ect. went digital, you would to have a scanner that is digital. When they changed to digital some for the frequency # have changed. I had to get the new ones and put them in.
