Hi all. I picked up a uniden ubc220xlt at a car boot the other day for a couple of quid. It doesnt seem to be working correctly.

It is very quiet, even when the volume is right up, and the squelch right down. I have heard of the pots failing on these. Is this likely.

I would like to get it working to leave at work to use.

It does occasionally stop on a channel, but its hard to hear if there is any conversation. And if there is it seem crackly.

Any help would be appreciated. Wayne.
