20 Most Recent Uniden BC60XLT-1 Handheld Scanner Questions & Answers


I had a scanner with 800mhz .. programed it to scan from 900.000
to 800.000 .. between those freqs. ..found several calls ... from cell phones .. but that was not what I was looking for ... I just ran into it by accident.

Police Officers ...from all agencies .. monitor cell phones .. all the time so if it illegal for citizens to do it , it should be for them also but I under the impression judges turn a blind eye to that fact.

Yes, it does sound like a bad power transformer. Try powering it using a DC supply or battery and see if the hum goes away.

Hi, first, you can only listen to analog radios on this scanner, so if you local or state public servants went to digital, you are out of luck. You can still receive National Weather Service, most railroads, ham radio operators and any small town police and fire that have remained on analog VHF and UHF. Do a Google search and you can get the instruction book for the radio. As far as channels, search for Radio Reference dot com and search for your state and county. That will list the channels to enter into your radio. Good luck and have fun.

You've got a great idea for a great invention, but that would probably be a privacy violation unless they called you and you could use their caller ID. Sorry about that.

Even if your scanner can manage to receive the frequencies, you would not be able to hear what people are saying. only the first generations of cell phones were analog and you could hear on side of the connection. Today all pone communication is digital, encrypted and you only can receive a phone close enough to you, to hear just a rattling noise. Modern phones are working close to and above 2 Ghz. A frequency, most scanners can't receive.

You may have to press a button to make it scan but also there may be no channels programmed and if so there is nothing to be scanned.

"DC to AC" cords are not really a common item. They are called "Inverters". Typical inverters are 12VDC to 120VAC and are found in mobile applications to operate houshold current type (120VAC) devices. Inverters cost many times more than thier "AC to DC" or "AC to AC" sisters.

An "AC to DC" and "AC to AC" cord however, is a very common item. They are usually called simply "AC Adapters" and are sold in many electronics stores (Best Buy, Fry's, etc.) and electronic specialty stores (Radio Shack) and electrnics suppliers (MCM, etc.) Nearly all of them are designed to reduce the voltage in your home (120 VAC volts alternating current) to a different but usually lower voltage that is either AC or DC.

In order to select the proper AC adapter, you need to know:
(1) Input Voltage - this is the outlet voltage - often 120 volts in N. America, (2) Output voltage - this is the voltage the device needs and is often indicated near the jack, The adapted must match this voltage. (3) the device voltage type - this will be either AC or DC. The adapter must match the type as they are NOT interchangeable. (4) the size and type plug on the cord that will allow it to mate properly with the jack. There are many, many types and it should be tested for fit prior to plugging in and must match the device jack (5) the power requirements - this is usually shown as a number in Watts (w) and / or Amps (a). It is very important that the apdapter power rating is equal to or greater than the amount specified by the device. Failure to meet the requirements above can cause failure of the device, adapter or both.

I hope this helps and good luck!
