Re: how to program an old regency 1060 scanner
I'm not too sure about this particular model, but other Regency variations require you to push the "Manual" button, enter the channel number you want to set (usually 01-09 for single digits) and then enter the frequency you want. On some you may need to enter the frequency first and then the channel number.

Press "Manual", then press digit key ("0/10" thru "9") that corresponds with the channel to be changed ("0/10" = ch10). Next, press the digit and decimal point keys to enter the frequency in megahertz (Mhz) to be stored in the channel. To store 453.100 Mhz in channel 2, you would press "Manual", then "2". Press the following keys in order: "4" "5" "3" "." "1" "0" "0", followed by pressing the "Enter" key. Repeat this process for up to 10 channels.If you wish to clear unused channels, you should be able to select the channel, then enter "." followed by the "Enter" key.
This scanner will only accept frequencies between 30.000Mhz and 599.999 Mhz. Attempting to input frequencies outside this range will result in an error message.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.
The RCA 16S400 is not a programmable scanner. Rather, it's an old (70's) crystal-based scanner that requires one crystal for each frequency. It covers the VHF-low, VHF-high, and UHF bands, and utilizes Regency type crystals. You can do a Google or Yahoo search for the crystals, but eBay is probably the best, and lowest priced source.
The K100 is an oldie from about 1980, when Regency was still manufacturing some radios in the USA and importing some from Japan. Below is a link to the manual for the K500, which had more channels & features than the 100, but was a similar radio. There is currently an eBay listing for the K100 manual (pdf) if you want to spend a few bucks.
Your Regency scans (samples) the programmed frequencies at the rate of approximately 15 channels per second, so it is constantly checking for an active frequency. "D-code" code refer to any of a number of things. Do you have the term in context?
1. Press "MANUAL"
2. Enter the frequency you want, example 162.475
3. Press "ENTER"
The display will show "Ch_" with the _ (underscore) flashing
4. Enter the number of the channel where you want to store the frequency.
Note: channels 1 thru 9 must have a zero before them, example 01, 02,........ 09
If you want to add more frequencies at this time, got to step 2.
To lock out a channel, press "SCAN" and while the unit is scanning, enter the channel number. Repeat this action to unlock a channel.
To increase or decrease the scanning rate, press the "SPEED / ENTER" key while the unit is scanning.
To create a delay after a transmission to wait for the next response, press the "DELAY" key while the unit is scanning.
You can change the display by pressing the "CHANNEL / DISPLAY" key. There are 3 choices: display only the channel number, only the frequency,or alternate displaying the channel number and the frequency.
No it can't sorry. If you want to scan things all the way up to the 900 MHz frequency you should get a Regency Touch K500. Its not a portable scanner however. It may be a little hard to find because Regency went out of business a while back, but look on e-Bay you'll find it there.
The scanner was probably turned off and it forgot what frequencies were programed into it. Older scanners have a problem with retaining their memory when they are shut off. Most of the older scanners have a memory back-up battery that helps the scanner retain its memory. Check and see if this battery is still good. As for your frequencies, you'll have to reprogram the scanner. To put it in technical terms, some older scanners have what is called RAM (Regency Alterable Memory) and ROM (Regency Organized Memory), when you turn off you scanner, this memory is erased, along with your programmed channels. Be sure not to turn off your scanner unless you're willing to reprogram the scanner.
