Antennas Uniden Bearcat BC148XLT

Are there any high powered antennas that will work with this scanner? I live in a semi-remote area and would like to pick up some municipal signals. Thanks.

Height and placement of the antenna determines range. Also, check to see you have the antenna perpendicular to the ground (straight up), and place the antenna where it has 19" clear around it. (not up against a wall or other obstruction)

Placing the existing antenna higher, or replacing it with an external antenna would give you more range. A simple test before purchasing a new connector, coax and antenna for the scanner, would be to place the scanner where you think you would place an antenna and see if it gives you the range you desire.

External antennas are available from most any radio shop. (They would need to know what type of connector you need to connect the coax to the back of the unit.)

Uniden bearcat scanner BC148XLT-1 Can't program it because it is locked out


Try manually unlocking each channel by selecting it and then pressing the LOCKOUT key. That will normally clear the channel for programming. If that doesn't fix the problem, power the scanner OFF, then press and hold the MANUAL, 2, and 9 keys while powering the unit ON. That should restore the scanner to its original factory settings.

I have a uniden bearcat scanner model#bc148xlt and it seems to not want to take the local frequencys and it comes up error when you hit the enter or e button


You didn't mention what frequencies you're trying to program. BC148XLT coverage ends at 512 MHz, so you will get the error message if you try to program anything above that. Also, you must be sure to include the decimal point when programming a frequency into the scanner. I hope this helps.

Alot of static very little talking


Check you antenna on the scanner. You are describing loss of signal to the scanner. It could be the antenna, the antenna connector, the scanner its self.
Check everything over, Try a better antenna.
