Maycom AR-108 squelch problems.
« on: October 31, 2012, 08:42:48 AM »
Good day guys!

I've recently bought a Maycom AR-108 from eBay. Unfortunately, when I turn the squelch control knob, nothing appears to happen.

This is a video showing it:



Am I doing something wrong?

Best wishes,

Mark

Looks like you're doing everything right.  It looks like the squelch circuit and/or knob is broken.  It's very frustrating. I recently bought a BCT8 scanner which did the same thing -- open squelch and no combination of frequencies or squelch settings would fix it. I had to send it in for repairs.

Wish I had better news. Perhaps someone here knows a trick to fix yours without having to send it in.

Not the news I'd like to hear unfortunately.

Ah well, c'est la vie. Thank you for your reply. :)
