REALISTIC PRO 2005 QUESTION

Postby Dawly » Fri Oct 11, 2019 8:38 pm

I have recently bought one of these radios and have noticed that when I close the squelch for scanning I can hear a quiet hiss on the speaker.

I have the same problem on my uniden scanner but can cure it by switching high cut on.

Has anyone got any suggestions for how to eliminate it on the pro 2005?

I wondered about doing some of the audio mods I have seen on the DK mods website.

Thanks in advance. Adam

The 2005 is still a really good scanner. I still use mine from time to time, especially on mil air. I am not aware of any hiss issues, or not with mine, but maybe google will help as lots of mods & tricks are available for this model.

The following link is for some 2005 mods..

Thks M0LSX. It was a good suggestion to Google it and it may possibly be RF noise and it may also be curable by putting a capacitor across the speaker wires a good radio buddy informs me. I shall do some tests to find out where the noise is coming from and take it from there. Are you sure when you turn all the ambient noise off in your Shack and your 2005 is scanning there isn't a quiet white noise emanating from the speaker? Off on holiday this week so I'll have a rummage around for a second-hand speaker to see if that makes any difference though I'm not a lover of speakers in the shack. I'll post up here how I get on. 73 Adam

Unless I have a QRM issue, I never really turn everything off. But I have never noticed any noise noise on the 2006.

OK thanks. It may be particular to the 2005, but when I get back from holiday next Saturday I'll have a think around with it. Thanks as usual for all your help and suggestions. 73 Adam
