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.

I have a bc60xlt andno matter how i turn the squelch i get the same hiss what happened


The Bearcat Scanner is neat hand held scanner, Is the scanner programed? Depress the WX for weather and see if the weather channel is available. The squelch knob should be turned clockwise and the noise level should decrease (actually you are decreasing the allowable signals to be received). If you get no response from a know frequency, then the squelch pot may need cleaning or replacement may be in order.....Cost for repair at service shop may not be feasible.

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

I have tried to adjust my squelch but all i hear is loud static in between transmissions


  • Hi, I can help.

  • If your getting transmissions then the receive is working.If your squelch is not adjusting out then it is possible your antenna, or the connector, is not working right. Hand held scanner antennas are the same across the board as for frequency use. The connector your antenna uses is a standard BNC connector. So your antenna is really universal which mean you don't have to go to Uniden and pay top dollar for their antenna.


  • Now it is possible the squelch knob is giving you trouble. but I would see if you can borrow an antenna just to try from anyone you know that has a hand held scanner. As long as their scanner works well with that antenna it should on yours too. If it don't then check the connector for the antenna on the scanner and make sure it is not loose. You can open the scanner and just eyeball the connections and make sure no soldier joints are not cold.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

I have the pro 96 for about 2 years and I can hear the squelch sound but its not picking up chatter.


Turn it on, press the manual button,then rotate the squelch knob until you hear silent,press scan and wait to see if you hear transmissions,if not ,you may need to re-program it, to re-program, press manual,enter the channel number,press manual,enter the frequency you want including the decimal point, press E. If you make a mistake,press CLR to erase. You can get the frequency for your state at RadioFreq.com or RadioReferance.com. hope this helps..

Trying to program it


First you'll need a list of frequencies to program. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you have your freq list, power the scanner ON,and:

1. Press PGM. Then enter the channel number (1-200) where you want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
2. Use the keys to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel. Press DELAY if you want the scanner to pause 2 seconds on this channel before it proceeds to the next channel after a transmission ends.
4. To program the next channel in sequence, press PGM and
repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Operation
• To listen to a weak or distant station, turn SQUELCH counterclockwise. If reception is poor, turn SQUELCH clockwise to cut out weak transmissions.
• If SQUELCH is adjusted so you always hear a hissing sound, the scanner will not scan or search properly.

Squelch quit working in regular scan mode PRO-528


Just fixed my squelch problem; I don't know how it happened but Resistor 138 was burned & intermittant. It was so badly burned that I could not read the color code but it measured 880 ohms intermittantly. I replaced it with an 860 ohm carbon resistor & all seems well; time will tell. R-138 is located on the circuit board right behind the squelch potentiometer. R-139 is immediately behind the pot & R-138 is next to R-139. All I had to do is remove the 4 screws on the back of the case & the unit splits in half. I clipped the old resistor out leaving a bit of the old leads so I could solder in the new resistor without having to get to the backside of the circuit board. Scanner is working as I type this & I hope it does not burn out again. Hopefully this is the same problem in your scanner & an easy fix. Good luck.

I am also new to radio scanning


Hi, you do not mention where you are located, but my first guess is that you are trying to listen to some freq's that are not compatable with your scanner. The squelch you use to quiet the white noise, so when someone keys their mic the squelch opens easy and allows you to hear them. The scanner you have is a standard FM analog style scanner. Nowdays there is also digital and encripted, trunktracking, and more. None of the different styles are compatable. On my scanners at home I run an external antenna to pull in a greater range. Our local area still runs the standard FM radios. If you respond back with some info, I might be able to narrow the problem down further.
Thank you,,, Mechanic
