SOURCE: NO SQUELCH

I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Sincerely

Greg Stevens

This is an internal problem that can only be repaired by a technician familiar with Bearcat scanners. If you live near NJ, call 973-831-5900.

The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

Look at the squelch knob. If it is turned fully counterclockwise, it is in "Auto". Turn the knob clockwise to enter the manual mode and adjust the range untill static is heard. Reverse direction until the static is no longer heard.

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.

Adjust the squelch until you hear a hissing sound, and trun the knob back slowly until the hissing stops.

Static


Check your SQUELCH setting - that will make the 'hiss' sound if it is turned too far or bumped.

New BC355C put 7 channels in,but only will stop on 2


1. Be sure sure that your squelch is adjusted properly. While scanning, turn the SQUELCH control down slowly until scanning stops and you hear a hissing sound. Then slowly turn the control back up until scanning resumes. That will set a proper threshold level for the frequencies you're monitoring.
2. Be sure that signals are not blocked in your area. Topography plays a large part in VHF and UHF radio reception. A hill, a tall building, even a thick grove of trees can prevent a signal from reaching your antenna.
3. It's possible that there was just no traffic on the five freqs while you were listening.
4. Be sure that the frequencies you've programmed are assigned in your area.

I don't have the manual for my Uniden Bearcat BC 855 scanner.


You can download/print the complete manual for your scanner by following the link below. It's a free download, and it provides detailed programming instructions. If you're programming a channel that is "empty" (showing 000.0000) just enter your frequency. Empty channels automatically show LOCKOUT but it clears with programming. The squelch setting will vary according to the strength of the signals you receive. Once you start scanning, turn the squelch down until scanning stops and you hear a hissing sound, then turn the control up slowly until scanning resumes.

Makes a squlesh sound like a CB radio when monitoring radio or transmitting


GMRS transceivers, yes - like CB radios, have squelch or threshold tuning circuitry. Without it you would be listening to an irritating hissing noise between transmissions, and the radios would not be able to scan. The big difference is that the squelch setting on a CB is adjustable, but it's automatic on GMRS sets.

How do i adjust the squlech on my unidenbc12xlt hand held scanner


The actual setting will vary according to the strength of the signals you're receiving, so it may require adjustment as you move around. With the unit scanning, turn the squelch down slowly until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise. They slowly bring the level up until scanning resumes.
