Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, the BNC antenna connector on my pro-34 scanner radio broke off inside at the solder connection between the receptacle center pin and the circuit board. so my son desoldered it and now i would like to solder a new connector but I don't know exactly where on the circuit board I should be connecting it. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best idea would be to get that son back on the job - he should remember where he de-soldered it from!!!

Need antenna


This radio has a standard BNC antenna jack. Radio Shack does now offer an antenna with a BNC connector on the end that you can use with this radio.

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

The antenna on my ICF-SW7600gr broke off. I want to solder on a new wire lead. should i only connect to the top solder point, or to all three where the old antenna plate rested?


There is only one antenna connection. That is the wire or pin in the middle of the coax connector where the old antenna was connected. Hook that to your new antenna, the other connectors are usually at ground potential and won't help a bit. Often a piece of wire the same length as the old antenna will work fine. Stretch it in the vertical position as was the old antenna.

It doesn't pick up signals as good as other R10's


Assuming you already tried a different antenna, check antenna connections inside the case ... the antenna connector's centre conductor should be firmly soldered to the circuit board, and another solder connection from the circuit board to the antenna connector barrel. If the antenna connector has been twisted too much, these solder joints may be cracked and you could try re-melting the solder.

the center conductor is plus, outer shell is return or gnd. u have ohm meter? did you loose pads? if the trace is broken, ohm the trace to gnd. the lead that goes to outer shell connects to gnd side.

The internal antenna BNC connection (the little steel bayonet that the secures the antenna or extender cable) is a common failure on these units. The threaded retaining ring on the outside of the antenna BNC comes loose when installing/removing the antenna connection, and eventually the BNC rotates and the solder joint inside fails. This happened on mine recently, if you are handy fixing small mechanical parts and a good solderer it is pretty  easy to fix. Remove the batteries, remove all six outer case screws (but not the one with the oval metal plate) and gently pull the housing apart. Check the solder connection of the coax wire to the BNC pin & shield. If it's broken and the BNC is loose in the GPS case, tighten the outer BNC retaining ring VERY tight, add a drop of thin super glue (Hot Stuff or Permabond CyA, etc) to keep the ring/BNC/case mated, then repair the coax solder  connection. Replace all the screws and test it outside. If it's an aviation GPS you would of course have this done by an FAA licensed avionics specialist. Wink wink.

Alas, another PRO-96 problem. I bought this at a


the most common problem with handheld scanners with no receive is a broken solder joint where the center pin of the antenna connects to the circuit board inside. It is a very small connection to solder. you can press it lightly with a toothpick to see if it responds.

Pro-97


I, too, recently experienced the same difficulty with my two year old Pro97 scanner and was able to correct the problem. I removed the back cover and followed the center wire from the antennae connection to the top board that has the green resistor. With a magnifying glass, I looked at the connection, and as it makes the bend onto the top board, the connection was broken. I carefully soldered the connection from the green resistor to the wire from the center antennae connection. Everything works like new now. If your scanner is still under warranty, you may want to have it replaced.

Pro-97 scanner recieving problem


try going to a urban area and scanning the NOAA band. if that works your programming is wrong and there is nothing wrong with your AM/FM base band. also the BNC antenna connector on the inside is notorious for breaking away from the board, nothing a little solder cant handle. Also make sure your local freq's are not Digital
