I have a uniden bc350a scanner that has a receiver problem. It works fine picking up uhf but it does nothing in the vhf range not even the weather freqs. I can program them in the private bank and nothing or I can use the search function still nothing. Has anyone else experienced this and if so does anyone know what might be causing this and possibly how to fix it? (hopefully something simple and easy) I opened the case and looked around to see if I could see anything obviously wrong with it but didn't. As I said uhf works perfect, there is some local uhf freqs. to monitor but most of my receiving needs are vhf.

any comments, questions, answers are appreciated! thanks

the obvious question is what kind of antenna are you using, and have you tried a different antenna? Mine does not have that issue, but does have a wobbly squelch pot that i'm too lazy to fix. all i use this one for is weather anymore. It was a great radio in 1993 for the money..

thanks for the reply! good thought about the antenna, but as I posted earlier the uhf range works fine so its not the antenna. I have tried 4-5 different antennas. Everything about the scanner works except the vhf range.
