I managed a Radio Shack in the early nineties, so this info may be out of date. RS did have their own repair facilities in various locations around the country.
If you don't have a local RS any longer to take it in, try calling their customer service:
RadioShack Customer Care
900 Terminal Rd #244
Fort Worth, TX 76106 USA
If the scanner doesn't need parts, they may yet have techs that can tune up the scanner. A caveat, however... Typically, the techs were not capable of these types of repairs. We had a term for the techs back then: Board Swappin' Idiots. It was faster, cheaper, and required less technical savvy to simply swap the boards and ship back the products. Honestly, I presume that Uniden does exactly the same. As Bill said above, if the boards are no longer available, doubtful the support centers can do much of anything.
The schematics are likely available online and a good TV repair shop should be able to tune up the radio/resolder the antenna connector for you... if you can find one.
