No freqency numbers showing when scanning

When scanning frequencies, instead of showing the frequency numbers, only the numbers 56.8. appear - when the scanner locks in on an active channel, the frequency numbers reappear. What is going on?

I am trying to figure out how to set the scanner frequencies


  1. Press hold then enter then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency. Then press "FUNC" and "PGM" and the channel number will appear.
  2. Use the number keys to enter a frequency including the decimal point you want to store.
  3. Press "E" to store the frequency into the channel.
  4. Note - If you entered an invalid frequency in step two "ERROR" will appear and it will beep three times. Enter a valid frequency.
  5. The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. ie an entry of 155.174 will automatically be rounded to 155.175
  6. When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and "DLY" appears. When delay is turned on the scanner automatically pauses scanning.

What are trunked freqencies


A trunked radio system is one where users share a number of frequencies that are rotated by a computer, and while your scanner may be able to tune in to specific frequencies within the system, it is not capable of following a user when the frequencies are changed. In other words, you may pick up a lot of activity on a frequency in the system, but you'll have a bunch of partial, cut-off conversations involving different users. For more information/discussion of trunked systems, I suggest that you visit www.RadioReference.com

I cannot figure out how to program my scanner to the fire frequency.


To program any known frequency into your BC72XLT, power the scanner ON, and then:

1. Press Hold. Then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency, then press Func and Pgm. The channel number appears.
2. Use the number keys and to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel.

Notes:
• If you entered an invalid frequency in Step 2, Error appears and the scanner beeps three times. Enter a valid frequency.
• The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter 151.473 (MHz), your scanner accepts it as 151.475.
• When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and DLY appears. When delay is turned on, the scanner automatically pauses scanning 2 seconds after the end of a transmission before scanning proceeds to the next channel. To turn the function off or on, press Func + Dly.
• If you enter a frequency that has already been entered elsewhere, the scanner sounds an error tone and displays the channel that was duplicated. If you entered the frequency by mistake, press then enter the correct frequency. To enter the frequency anyway, press E to
accept.

4. To program the next channel in sequence, press E then repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Am I able to scan a frequency band? for instance scan between frequency 150.200mhz and 160.200mhz? how would I do it?


Oddly, your scanner does not include this feature - which is standard on nearly all scanners. It does, however, let you search pre-programmed services (police,marine, etc.) or search up or down from a designated frequency. To do the latter:

1. Repeatedly press SCAN/MAN until MAN appears.
2. Enter the desired channel number you want to use as a starting point for the tune. Then press SCAN/MAN again.
3. Press TUNE/CLEAR to start tune. PGM appears.
4. Hold down the up or down arrow for about 1 second to tune up or down. The arrow appears and the scanner searches in the specified direction.
5. When the scanner finds an active frequency, it stops searching and displays the frequency.
6. To search for another active frequency, hold down
the up or down arrow for about 1 second.

How do I program a Regency Z30 scanner?


To program the Regency Z30

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.
