Question about Uniden BC72XLT Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

BC72XLT Do you add new freqs to pre-existing bands already labeled as Pol, Ham Fire etc. or do you set up a new set of bands? Can you get it to jump from band to band automatically (ie from ham to pol) when on scan, or does it only scan one selected band at a time?

You can't add to the preprogrammed search functions, but you can program frequencies from these bands into any locations you wish within the 100 programmable channels, where it will jump bands while scanning.

How do I re-program my Yaesu FTC-1143 to the Ameatur 70m Band


Hi Rick,

If I'm not Wrong, You have the UHF Model radio, and therefore can't program VHF frequencies as it's the wrong band. If I am wrong, then you have a dual band radio, which should be pre-programmed with all the correct frequencies for both 2m & 70cm bands.

I hope this answers your query.

Cheers,
Peter

Bands covered by Furuno FS-1502


It doesn't appear to cover the ham bands, only maritime. This radio is also not type approved for operation on ham bands either.

You can find the freq. range in the manual at the link below:

http://www.furunousa.com/Furuno/Doc/0/AHHEA1GA2ITKN04R23GBMOTKF1/FS1502%20Operator%5C%27s%20Manual%20Vu.pdf

Nice Radio though.

How do i get expanded freqs on my ft1802 yaesu tranceiver


The FT-1802 is a 50 watt 2 meter FM transceiver. It can transmit anywhere between 144 - 148 Mhz (the FM portion) of the 2 meter ham band. It can receive anywhere between 136 - 174 Mhz without any modifications. There is a modification to enable transmit "out of band" below:

http://www.ham.dmz.ro/yaesu/ft-1802-extended-transmit-modification.php

There are few details about the results of this mod - typically these provide for transmitting on frequencies outside (above, below or both) of the 2 meter ham band. Transmitting outside of the ham band without a proper license for the frequencies in the U.S. is a violation of FCC rules.

Cant program frequencies into my uniden bc72xlt scanner


Just to verify you are trying to program frequencies the scanner is able to receive.
This unit is limited to the following freq range.
25.0-27.995
28.0-29.695
29.7-49.995
50.0-54.0 5
108.0-136.9875
137.0-143.995
144.0-147.995
148.0-174.0 5
406.0-419.99375
420.0-449.99375
450.0-469.99375
470.0-512.0 6.25

If the frequencies your are trying to enter or outside these bands you will get a error.

Next Direct Entry Mode Programming
Press Func. + PGM
Press E to enter ch in current location
To change location pres func + Up ^ or down key to choose location then press E
Enter your freq then press E

Hope this helps.

BC72XLT program/scanning problems


1. If you mean on "bank" of channels, then you have locked out the others. To unlock them, place the scanner in "scan" mode & press each button that corresponds to each locked out bank until all are "on", as indicated near the top of the LCD. If you can't scan "bands", meaning all frequencies between 25-54, 118-174 & 406-512 Mhz, you may be stuck in the "capture" mode. Let me know if this is the case (not likely) & I'll coach you through it.

2. No.

3. No.

Do you have a list of correct freq's for your area?
Make sure you have the scanner set on the correct mode (am/fm/ct/dc) for the freq's you have programmed. Each area of the country have their own individual freq. so their not stepping on each others transmission.
