Uniden bc 350a

Hi, the squlech wont work therfore it wont scan. it has been exposed to some high rf from my cb radio ( about 70 watts) after i keyed the mike, no squlech. i shut it off for about 3 mos, and it worked fine. then i did the same thing. keyed the mike again, and lost the squlech again. is there a better solution? i dont want to shut it off for another 3 mos.

    Try operating the CB at it the FCC's "legal limit" of "4" watts and I bet you won't have the problem. That's why the FCC established rules for radio frequency bands.... to prevent interference with other equipment and radio services. You may unknowingly be interferiing with other things as well outside of your home....such as neighbor's TV's, Police/Fire radios, cordless phones.....I'd reconsider the 70 watts and go back to the legal limit before "Uncle Charlie" comes knocking at your door. Ever consider Ham Radio?

Hi, Is you CB gear grounded to an "earth" ground? Also try moving the scanner around, away from the CB coax, as your probably getting stray RF from there. I've run 100watt with my scanner 5ft. away from it and no problems for the last 6 years,,
You are using good quality coax, aren't you? Cheap coax leaks like a soaker hose. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic
** and preaching about ham radio does not solve this persons problem!**

When the mike is keyed the needle max out

It sounds like the radio wattage is cranked way up, the RF METER adjustment is not set right (Adjusting VR5 while keying the radio will fix that) SWR is VERY high or there is a break in the antenna line between the radio and the base of the antenna.

Have a new connex 3300hp i can hear everybody else but nobody can hear me when i key up and talk the needle dont even move

look up the tune specs VR13 (L PWR) L32 L33 high power maybe your watts are turned down if it is brand new send it back to the place you bought it from.If the watts are turned all the way down you won't get any carrier your needle is not moving when tranmitting there is no rf power check to see if your tx light is on when depressing the mic button. you should have a rf adjustment turn it clockwise to turn the power up on the front of your radio.or the mods i gave you in the radio.

Does anyone know the pod too turn for lowering the watts on my connex it is too high and i would like to turn it back also the modulation thanks

You have to adjust the high key first so make sure you're rf power is on high, hope you have a meter set it on the 20 watt scale, key up and turn vr 13
located in back of radio infront of where you're coax connector is until it keys around 12 watts, thats where most connex 33hp should be set,now go to low power and key adjust vr 16 right net to the otherone down to about 3 watts, now you can drive a liners. Mod is Vr 2 right below them two. whistle in mic and turn to get the mod you want.
