Scanner Connection Problem?

Scanner Connection Problem?

Post by Mis » Sun, 10 Oct 1999 04:00:00

When I push lightly on the base of the duckie antenna I get alot more
hits coming in, and they are clearer. Is there some way to make a
better connection in there. I'am not sure if the pin is not making a
good connection or it the ground?

Thanks for any comments..

Scanner Connection Problem?

Some of the Bearcat handhelds that came out the last few years had defective
*** antennas...the center pin in the BNC came loose and ended up stuck in
the radio side of the connector.  Check the antenna connector and be sure
the center pin is in the ANTENNA not in the radio.  From what I've heard,
Uniden has been spotty about replacing them for free.
