Just took a 330t out of storage and noticed that on conventional frequencies, the squelch is wide open regardless of the squelch setting from 1 to 10.

Trunking systems are ok, as long as the scanner hears the Motorola end code - if not, the radio will blare static until you press scan again.

Also seems like the scanner is "extremely sensitive." Direct comparison to a 780 and 996 beside the 330t - the mobiles don't pick up any paging system noise where the 330t with the standard rubber ducky antenna sounds like it's also sitting on a paging system even though I'm on an 800 Motorola TRS.

I've also heard of one case of this on a 396T.

Is this a known issue on these handhelds, and any estimate for cost of repair?

Uniden has a flat rate repair fee of $49.50 regardless of scanner model number, plus a $10.00 return shipping charge. They not only repair your know issue but do a complete bench test and make it as good as new.
