static/no static what does it mean?

I'm new to this scanner thing so I have a quick question.  Sometimes when
I select a frequency I don't hear any static (the squelch is off).  Does
this mean that someone is using it and just not broadcasting at the
moment?  Most often I get static on any frequency with action.  Should I
listen for something on these no-static frequencies?

Thanks
