Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

My scanner not pickin up


Hi Terry,

You forgot to post the Make & Model of your radio scanner, as they're not all the same.

I'll use generic terms for your (unknown) radio scanner.

Have you programmed any frequencies into your scanner? If not, there's the reason for no reception.

You are required to program frequencies into your radio scanner, before it will receive anything.

If you have programmed your favourite frequencies, did you check to see if they are applicable to your area/location?, If so, then after programming, did you press the L/O key? If so you have locked out your frequency(s) from scan mode. To undo this you will need to press the Mon/Hold key during scan made, this will stop the scanner from scanning, and you can now go through each programmed channel and press L/O key so that L/O icion on the display is out, once you've completed this task, you should be able to scan and when a transmission is received, the unit will stop scanning during the transmission.

I hope that I have assisted you.

Regards,
Peter

I have a uniden 355n scanner how do i program it?


Hi Janice,

First of all, you need a list of frequencies that you wish to program into your scanner see:www.radioreference.com.

Once you've got a hard copy of your favourite local frequencies, you will need to program them into your scanner.

Example only!!!

123.7000
This is an air band frequency but only for example this is what you need to do.

Press prog key, enter the frequency exactly as I have typed them here: 123.7000, press delay key, press L/O key only if L/O is showing on the display, now press Enter key, you now have the first frequency programmed.

Now press Hold/Mon key and you will be given the next channel to program, follow the steps above until you have completed the setup.

When complete, press scan and every time the scanner detects a transmission, it will stop scanning during the transmission, prior to scan again.

You can stop scanning at any time by pressing the Mon/Hold key, when you hear a transmission that interests you. That way you won't miss anything interesting.

I hope this helps you in your hobby.

Cheers,
Peter

How do i program my BC 55xlt uniden scanner?


To program:

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."
Pressing Lockout will toggle the status.

To program:

Select channel. Use 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.

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

If you have any other questions, please contact us again.

If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:

- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON.
- Press the SVC button (chrome button below display).
- Press POL (chrome button below display).
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise.
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.

If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.

To Program:

- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner."
- Power the unit ON
- Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes.
- Press HOLD.
- Press E (PGM).
- Press 0, 1.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02.
- Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press the E (PGM) key.

You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .

If it still will not accept programming, let me know.

Uniden scanner will not scan


Mine did the same thing. I installed ARC-XT-PRO software from BuTel, deleted all factory programming from the scanner, then downloaded/programmed everything I wanted from RadioReference.com. The BCD396XT and BCD996XT are fantastic scanners, but you have to beat them into submission before they will do what you want them to.

Ok doc, I'll see if I can walk you thru this as there don't seem to be a manual available for download.
* Push manual button and bring it around to channel #1
Enter the freq including the decimal point. Push the E button to enter the freq into the first channel.
* Push manual again and move to channel #2 and repeat.
If you need some new freq's for your area, go here, click on your state, county, and it'll give you a complete rundown.

If you need 10 codes for your area, go here and click on your state.
