While in SCAN mode, enter the number of the channel you want to lockout. To re-activate it, enter the channel number again.

There "should" be a lockout button on the control panel and that is for locking out channels. I'm not sure of that particular scanner, cause it's been about 10 years since I've seen one up close. One old scanner I had, I would have to punch in the channel # for it to lock out the channel. Hope this helps you somehow,,, Mechanic

How do I unlock my scanner?


Channel Lockout You can lock out a channel so it is not scanned. Channel Lockout does not erase the frequency from the channel. You can lock out up to 50 channels, including the Priority channel.
Lockout information is retained in the memory when the scanner is turned off.To Lock out a Channel
Example: Suppose you want to lock out Channel 2 because it stops on transmissions you don't want to hear.Press LOCKOUT when the scanner stops on Channel 2.The scanner locks out Channel 2, Then it immediately advances to the next channel that is not locked out, and resumes scanning.In the Manual mode, press LOCKOUT to lock out the displayed channel. Pressing LOCKOUT does not advance to the next channel in Manual mode.L/O appears in the display to indicate the displayed channel is locked out.Whenever you want to search for channels that are locked out, press MANUAL repeatedly to go through all 50 channels. If a channel is locked out, L/O
appears in the display.Restore a Locked Out Channel To unlock a channel so that it can be monitored during scanning:1. Press MANUAL repeatedly to find the locked out channel.2. Press LOCKOUT again to unlock the displayed channel. L/O no longer appears in the display.Restore All Locked Out Channel To unlock all channels, you must be in the Manual Mode.1. Press MANUAL.
2. Press and hold LOCKOUT to unlock all channels. The L/O indicator goes out on any channel previously locked out.

How to lock out a channel


For a temporary lockout, manually select the channel and then press the Func and L/O keys. Use the same procedure to release the lockout.

For a permanent fix, select the channel and then program 0.0 (zero point zero) into it. Doing this will create a blank channel that the scanner will automatically skip during scanning.

Bearcat scanner lockout on and i want it off


You didn't provide a model number, so this response is a little generic and applies mainly to late model Bearcats. To release an individual programmed channel from lockout, stop the scanner on that channel (select and press MANUAL) then press the Lockout (L/O) key. Any unprogrammed channel, displaying 000.0000, will show as locked out. Programming a frequency into it automatically releases the lockout. If all channels are showing as locked out you may need to reset the scanner. The reset procedure varies my model, so I'll need the model number to describe the steps.

Hi i have a regency D300 thrity channel scanner and i need to no how th lock out the weather band channel


put it in manual mode and scroll to the desired frequency that you want to lockout. You should be able to just press the lockout button while in manual mode and it will lockout this channel. Then just simply press resume or scan and it should be resolved.

HOW DO I GET ONLY THE CHANNELS I WANT


You can use the LOCKOUT key to temporarily bypass unwanted channels, or you can delete the unwanted frequencies by reprogramming their channels with "0.0" I hope this helps, and please contact us again if you have have other scanner questions.

How to program regency model 1070 scanner? I program scanner,yet unsure why no ''frequencies'' stop.Only zero flashes>


I couldn't locate a manual for you, but this vintage 10-channel unit is fairly simple to operate.

Start by turning the unit on with the POWER button.
Push the MANUAL button.
Push MANUAL until you see the Channel you want to enter the frequency in -i.e: Ch 1, Ch 2, etc.
Enter the frequency with all the digits needed - i.e: 44.94 / 44.98 / 154.965 / 155.610 etc
Push the ENTER button. The frequency will now be in the Channel "Ch" you chose.


While still in the manual mode - go the the channel you expect to listen to most - then push "DELAY/HOLD". This will hold the scan so you will get the reply from the dispatch unit to the receiving unit.You can set this feature on any or all of the ten channels.

Push the "LOCK" button to lock out channels you no longer want to listen to, or that you want to ignore temporarily.

How do clear the scanner to re program it


Programming a frequency into a channel clears the previous channel entry, so there's really no need to "clear" the scanner for reprogramming. To eliminate an unwanted frequency, you can either press the LOCKOUT key to prevent the scanner from stopping on a specific channel, or you can "zero" a channel:

1. Press SCAN/MAN to stop
scanning.
2. Use the number keys to enter
the channel number (1-200)
you want to clear.
3. Press PGM. F=C appears.
4. Press 0 then ENT. The
frequency number changes to
000.0000 to indicate the
channel is cleared.

How do you clear all channels so i can put the channels that i want in it


There is no need to clear the scanner before reprogramming. When you enter a new frequency it will automatically overwrite the old frequency. To clear unwanted frequencies you can program "0.0" into any channel to clear it, or simply use the LOCKOUT feature to prevent the scanner from stopping on a channel.

while the weather channel is coming in hi LO (lockout) so that if its programmed into a regular scanning memory it will skip. If that dont work look for a lock button or keyboard lock and press that then scan.

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.
