• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

hello, i am new to radio scanner, just got a brand new uniden bc72xlt. all seem to be working except no sound when found a frequency does not respond to volume adjust and squelch also the headphone plug. but the internal speaker does have very low hissing sound, it doesn't respond to any switch or plug either, have checked the battery.

If you program a weather channel frequency (i.e. search in the 162-163 MHz range), can you hear sound from the speaker or headphone jack?
