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.

Eurovox - setanta channels


try this it should help you get channels back.
Try and determine the lowest transponder frequency that you can get a signal on.
Look at the frequencies you already have on the channels saved so far and choose the lowest.
Then in the installation menu select MANUAL SCAN and set that as the frequency.
Make sure you can see a signal and scroll down to Network scan and change to ENABLE with the Right arrow.
While still highlighted, click OK.
Scanning should then begin. It will say 1/1 to start with but should then jump up to 1/?? (the ?? being 2 digits).
Using this method indicated it scanned 56/56 transponder frequencies as opposed to 48 in Auto scan on one main provider.

I also gained a few extra channels.
The other transponders may have been picked up by scanning other providers. if no luck let me know .

Here is the directions to store frequencies in your scanner:


Storing Known Frequencies
Into Channels

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
Operation 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.

duplicated. If you entered the frequency by mistake,
press then enter the correct frequency.
