Squelch UBC125XLT

Postby Dieselguzzler » Mon Jul 24, 2017 8:05 pm

Evening all,

Can someone please explain optimum and correct setting of squelch on the UBC125XLT.

I feel I'm missing partial transmissions and want to make sure I've got squelch set correctly.
Can't quite understand if it's low signal or incorrect squelch causing issue.

UBC125XLT manual is quite vuage on squelch.

Many thanks.

Hi,I always have the squelch on my 125 set on 2 for everything,which works fine for me personally.
You'll get different opinions from people here who know much more about radio than I do,so please take them all into account when choosing the setting,and then I guess you'll choose what works for you.

You set it as low as you can to remove background noise when there is no transmission present.
I find it needs to be set at 2, whereas all my other Uniden kit can be set at 1.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

Another little aggravation can be caused by the close-call feature which tends to clip incoming tranmissions :smiles:

Which is why I have it turned off for 99.9% of the time.

That is because you use the Close Call Priority mode, which checks for nearby strong signals every two seconds, very annoying when monitoring active channels.
Use the Close Call Do Not Disturb (DND) mode, instead. :smiles:
