How is the squelch set?
Turn it fully left. At this point you will hear a lot of static.
Now turn the squelch right until the noise stops & the radio scans.
The further the squelch is turned to the right, the stronger the signal needs to be.
The more to the left the more you will hear. But you will also get false stops, where the static noise is a little louder than on other channels.
The trick is to get the squech set so the radio scans, but does not stop on too many, if any static.
Also are you scanning Bank 1 which is programmed?
Personally I think I would be listening to the tower frequencies individually with the squelch fully off, if my radio were not stopping on anything.
