Re: BC350A loud static

It may be that someone you are monitoring is now using digital or at least parttime.

when they go digital, you may only hear static.

hope this helps.

I have a bearcat scanner BC350A

Units that are stored for a long time may take some time (hours) if caps inside have gone flat from no use.

Uniden also has or had a flat charge for repair of these units--might want to look into that and weigh it versus the cost of a newer scanner.

How do i program the bc350a scanner

Your scanner does not have a standard keyboard programming function. Rather you must "capture" a frequency in SCAN or SEARCH mode, and then transfer (program) it into the scanner's PRIVATE bank. For detailed instructions on doing this, you can download/print the scanner's operating manual here:

How to pickup radio cellular signals from my bearcat bc350a

Even if your radio did cover those frequencies, it wouldn't do any good anymore as 99% of all cellphone calls are digital and cannot be decoded, (besides being against the law to listen in the USA)

Constant static

Sounds like a tech problem internally, may need cleaning on the pot. A service center can fix it. Or could be an Ant problem? Check your Ant connection make sure they are good and not dirty. Mositure in our homes builds up inside and on all connection. 1200 grit Sand papers works well on ant connection. Or did you move the scanner? that will cause problems as well.
