Yes - press the backlight button when you hear something.

:> No there is no way to do it automatically, that's a Uniden-only feature for now...

As an alternative, you can press and hold the backlight button (until it beeps) - this will turn the light on (until it is pressed again).

If you press and hold the backlight button to make it stay on as stated above, and you manually stop on a channel, then the scanner will go into battery save mode and turn the backlight off, when squelch is broken, the light will come back on for a time, then go back off.

You can only do this on a conventional channel in manual mode, it won't work with a trunked system.
