Good Way to Test Your Radio Scanner

If your Radio Scanner recieves Aircraft Frequencies and you live about 20 miles from an Airport you can look up the Frequency of the Automated Weather Beacon of the Airport which should be transmitting all the time.

i have this scanner and it will scan but it wont pick nothin up


A couple of things could be involved in your problem. You need to be listening to the frequencies that are being used in your area, but most of them will not be transmitting all of the time. Something you can try is if you live maybe about 10-20 miles from an airport and your scanner picks up aircraft frequencies you can look up the airport and find the automated beacon frequency and tune that in. The automated beacon should be transmitting 24/7 the weather conditions of the airport.

Another thing to check is weather you have the correct antenna attached to your scanner and that it is connected properly, the circuits in your scanner may need that antenna to be connected for the circuit to function properly.

If you are using the scanner to listen to your local Fire Dispatch there can be days when there isn't anything happening.

Another problem could be that your local Dispatch has moved over to a new Digital System and your scanner isn't equipped to recieve that System.

how do you program a bearcat bc55xlrt scanner with a code?


There are no codes, only frequencies. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

To program your BC55XLT:

Turn on radio.

It will be in scan mode. Press Manual (orange button) to stop scanning.
Press Manual button to step through channels to get to the one you want.
(Or press channel number and then manual button)

If "LockOut" is displayed it means this channel isn't being "Scanned."
You will want to lock out constant "broadcast" services such as NOAA or airport weather. Pressing Lockout will toggle the feature on and off.

Select a channel to program. Use the keypad to enter frequency. Use "E" for Enter
key. If the radio displays an E this means Error. Usually, the
frequency you typed in is outside of the capabilities of the scanner.

Once you hit the E you will immediately start hearing anything that's
out there on the frequency you entered.

Push the "Review" button and the scanner will display the frequency
that is programmed for the channel. A "-" will be displayed for the
decimal point.

Easy to use right out of the box!
Explore preset frequencies used for non-trunked police/fire, aircraft, marine, NOAA weather and more. Just attach the antenna, switch it on and touch one of five buttons. With just two keystrokes, you can store a frequency you find in the 200-channel memory for later scanning or monitoring. You can also search for activity in frequency ranges you specify or program known "action" frequencies on the keyboard.

  • 1-touch search lets you find police/fire, HAM radio, marine and 7 NOAA WX frequencies fast
  • Built-in weather receiver sounds an alarm when your NOAA weather station sends an alert
  • 50-frequency search skip locks out undesired frequencies
  • Programmable by computer (requires Scanner PC Programming Kit #20-048)
