I have an old Bearcat BC 170 scanner I need worked on. It seems to have an antenna problem. I tried several types of antennas on it and it will not pick up. There is a little mexican restaurant just down the street and when the PD or FD check out there I can hear them just fine, but it won't pick up anything else. Any idea on where to take it that won't charge more than this this is worth? Anywhere from Sherman to Dallas will be within range.

Sounds like you have more then an antenna problem.

If you are only hearing down the street then it sounds like the sensitivity is off on the rig.

I have lots of equipment to look into this if you like.

IM me if interested, I am in the N. Dallas area.
