Question about Uniden BC350 Base Scanner

1 Answer

Dear Expert, I have BC350C. I set up a good scanner antenna and the high quality cable at the roof which works perfect with the other scanners. BC350C gets deaf in some of the bands, while perfect on other bands. At deaf bands if I change the antenna with a piece of wire it works fine. This is not an antenna and cable problem. Is there any solution for me to solve this problem. A.Tahir DENGIZ, TA2T

Suspect you live in a metropolitan area and your antenna is too good. You are experiencing RF overload into your scanner on certain bands. All I can suggest is some sort of band pass filters or a better scanner.

SOURCE: To get celluar frequencies on bc350c 800mhz 100 channel scanner.


You can no longer listen to cell phones with police scanners as all cell phones are now digital. Years ago when cell phones were using the 800mhz band it was possible. But only with select older models of scanners such as the BC-200XLT and after an internal modification to allow tuning of 860-880 mhz range. I do believe there is equipment out there that can listen to digital cell phones but its very expensive ($10,000) and only for law enforcement use. Hope this answers your question.

SOURCE: How to pick up cell phone frequencies on scanner.

I had a scanner with 800mhz .. programed it to scan from 900.000
to 800.000 .. between those freqs. ..found several calls ... from cell phones .. but that was not what I was looking for ... I just ran into it by accident.

Police Officers ...from all agencies .. monitor cell phones .. all the time so if it illegal for citizens to do it , it should be for them also but I under the impression judges turn a blind eye to that fact.

I have a unidenbc72xlt scanner--I live in a rural area and reception is terrible. when i get to city(about 25 miles away) it works good but at home is terrible--any solutions

Your ONLY solution is an external antenna. The best scanner is only as good as the antenna that feeds it. A discone would be the best, but a less-costly vertical would probably do a good job for you. The least costly, and least effective solution would be an indoor antenna - the ones enclosed in PVC pipe do a fair job. If you can't mount the antenna on your roof, a balcony or an attic will usually work fine. As a last resort, you can always set up a vertical inside a closet. eBay is a good source for scanner antennas, and you might also try

HELP with bc350c scanner, won't pick up feeds

Sounds like an antenna problem. Remove your back-of-set antenna and see if reception changes. If it's the same or nearly the same, check the antenna solder connections inside the set and resolder if necessary. You might also try an outdoor antenna or one of the indoor/outdoor units that's enclosed in PVC pipe. These are fairly inexpensive and can be found on eBay or other sources.

When my scanner is on all I hear is static . I can hear pick up on it but inbetween it is all static

That's a hard one to answer without seeing the scanner and not knowing the location where you're operating it. Assuming that you've already adjusted to squelch to "mute" the scanner between transmissions, you might be in a weak signal area that requires something better than the back-of-set antenna that came with the scanner. Check eBay and other sources for inexpensive ($15-$30) indoor/outdoor antennas that are enclosed in PVC pipe. They can drastically improve reception.

I need to sawder the antanna back on is there a certain way

if the telescopic antenna is broken you cant solder it, but you can buy a replacement antenna,some scanners have an antenna that just screws into the circuit board through a hole in the top of the case,or you can get a telescope antenna that will attach to antenna jacks on the back of the set if it has those, which im sure that model does. Antenna jacks came come in several types , one is called a BNC which just pushes in and turn about half a turn to lock in place,also some scanners have the type of jack like the back of a car radio, with those you just push them in and you can find telescopic antennas with the auto type plug at a 90 degree angle that will work fine.If you need more help let me know

Uniden bc 350a

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
