Question about Uniden BC246T Handheld Scanner

Use Of Uniden BC-246T In A Canadian Province

Hello. The last scanner i had was a Uniden BC-72XLT, And found out later that it was designed for american centers. So now im looking at the BC-246T (I Like the handheld) And was just wondering if i would run into the same problems. If so, I understand these radios have a pc port...So would i download a program for my area then? Is it difficult to program this radio for my area? I really must know everything i can about this because im not rich, And don't want to throw cash at something that just won't perform (Like the BC-72XLT) So if someone could clarify this up for me, I'd be really stoked. Thanks.

That link the Kevin gave only works for American cities.  I wouldn't be surprised if most scanners in general are programmed for American use only.  Most private applications for them could be illegal in other countries.

How do you program a bcd 396t digital scanner


Hi David,

I don't know if you've found an answer to your query yet, but here goes:
Q1. Dowload the user manual, if you don't have a copy.
Q2. How do you obtain a copy?
Q3. Read instructions CAREFULLY, very tricky for a novice.
A1. Join yahoo group specific to the BRAND/MODEL of your unit or www.uniden.com and follow the links
A2. As above
A3. The manual describes in plain english the steps required under direct entry programming.
These units are the best uniden has made, especially for listening to P25 comms, if you're into that kind of listening.

I hope this is helpfull, I would have given you programming instructions myself, but it's quite involved and we don't have the space here.

Cheers,
Peter

I have a uniden bearcat hand held scanner sportcat, which for some reason has lost its memory, is there any way to program it


You didn't specify the model number of your scanner, so here's a link to a list of available Uniden scanner manuals. If your model number is listed, just click on the "Product Details" column to download/print the manual. It will provide detailed programming instructions.
