My friend purchased a Uniden Bearcat BC75XLT hand-held radio. I read online how to program it and set it up and did so.

At first, when there was no transmission, it was silent and then when there was a transmission we heard it clearly.

Then all of a sudden, in between transmissions there was loud static. And it does so on every frequency we programmed in. It stops when they speak and we still hear clearly, but the static in between is so loud we can't stand to have it on for very long.

I've tried to look online to get help but couldn't find any answers. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Adjust Squelch
The scanner recognizes signals as transmissions if they
exceed a signal strength threshold. Adjusting the squelch
sets this threshold level. Increasing squelch requires a signal
to be stronger to be seen as a transmission. If you set the
squelch too high, you will risk not receiving transmissions
that are lower than that threshold. Reducing the squelch
allows weaker signals to be accepted. However, if you lower
the squelch too much, you will hear white noise all the time.
1. Press Func and the press down and release the scroll
control knob. SqL and a number display.
2. Turn the knob until the interference is gone. Press the
scroll control knob again to set the level and return to
the previous function

and that is from here
