SOURCE: programing for uniden bearcat scanner bc 144xl

danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.

To program a BC 70XLT turn the scanner on and hit the man key.
enter the channel you want to program (ie 1) hit the man key again then enter the frequency you want to scan (IE 450.625) then hit the E key to enter the freq into the location if you want to sequence to the next channel then hit the man key again enter the freq and hit the E key.you can go through all 20 channels this way.

SOURCE: Uniden UBC72XLT scanner problem.

The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

Uniden bcd396xt scanning but no sound coming from scanner


BCD386XT No sound. If it is actually stopping on an active broadcast and if you have the volume turned up (press down on volume button and release, then rotate to adjust) then the most likely cause is a failed speaker. Try a set of headphones in the jack on top by the antenna, if you have sound there it is most certainly a bad speaker. It is a very tiny speaker that is as thin as a nickel, many have been broken by a simple jar or by being played too loud by the hearing impaired. It is not hard to change but basic soldering skills are required. the speaker is available from uniden parts.

sounds like you have another channel set for priority and it is scanning back to check that channel. In the manual mode scroll thru channel's until you find one set with a "p" or "pri" on the screen. Hit the priority button and this should resolve the problem.

Wow, Uniden did their best to make the SC230 manual confusing, didn't they? Here's a link to a much easier to read/use manual that was put together by an SC230 owner who couldn't figure out the factory document. I hope it helps.

Bearcat BC144XL Scanner ~ no sound


Try it with an external speaker. The external speaker jack receives the audio from the scanner before it goes to the internal speaker. If the jack thinks there is still something plugged into it, the audio to the internal speaker is interrupted. If the jack is stuck, it may still work with an external speaker.

1. Cellular is blocked out on most scanners. You might find a mod on the internet to unblock it....but

2. Most cellular now a days is digital anyway, so even if you could listen to the frequency, it would just be noise.
