Fr Err usually means that the freq entered into a certain channel is too high or too low for the band of the scanner. Also could mean that the freq's have been lost out of the memory. Maybe a dead memory battery, or been unhooked from the wall too long and lost it's charge. Been a loong time since I've seen one of those models,,, Let me know if it helps,,, Mechanic

Regency R1077 base scanner can not delete old frequencies to reprogram scanner


Press "Manual", then press digit key ("0/10" thru "9") that corresponds with the channel to be changed ("0/10" = ch10). Next, press the digit and decimal point keys to enter the frequency in megahertz (Mhz) to be stored in the channel. To store 453.100 Mhz in channel 2, you would press "Manual", then "2". Press the following keys in order: "4" "5" "3" "." "1" "0" "0", followed by pressing the "Enter" key. Repeat this process for up to 10 channels.If you wish to clear unused channels, you should be able to select the channel, then enter "." followed by the "Enter" key.

This scanner will only accept frequencies between 30.000Mhz and 599.999 Mhz. Attempting to input frequencies outside this range will result in an error message.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

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.

FINDING FREQUENCIES


87ff97c.jpgNo it can't sorry. If you want to scan things all the way up to the 900 MHz frequency you should get a Regency Touch K500. Its not a portable scanner however. It may be a little hard to find because Regency went out of business a while back, but look on e-Bay you'll find it there.

Looking To Buy A good scanner? Is The BCD396T The way to go?


A good scanner? Hmm... too many to list. But the #1 on my list is a Realistic PRO-2006 gapless frequency scanner. This scanner has no limitations to what it can scan. It scans HF/FM/AM/VHF/UHF/Air/TAC/Marine VHF/GMRS/CB/SSB/USB/LSB/WX. Hell, it even scans the FM and AM bands (the music bands). It's frequency range is up in the 1300 MHz range and is probably the only scanner you'll ever need. If it's too pricey, my second recommendation is a Regency MX4000. The Regency MX4000 is a good little scanner with a 950MHz range. It is not gapless however. It has 20 Memory channels and scans AM/FM/UHF/VHF/Air/Marine VHF/Mobile Phone/WX bands. It may be hard to find one because Regency went out of business a while back, but if you do find one, it may be worth your while.

Best Regards,

The scanner was probably turned off and it forgot what frequencies were programed into it. Older scanners have a problem with retaining their memory when they are shut off. Most of the older scanners have a memory back-up battery that helps the scanner retain its memory. Check and see if this battery is still good. As for your frequencies, you'll have to reprogram the scanner. To put it in technical terms, some older scanners have what is called RAM (Regency Alterable Memory) and ROM (Regency Organized Memory), when you turn off you scanner, this memory is erased, along with your programmed channels. Be sure not to turn off your scanner unless you're willing to reprogram the scanner.

The lock out function is a common problem in scanners, to override the lockout command, you can press and hold the lock out button, or punch in the frequency that you locked out and unlock it by pressing the appropriate buttons depending on the model of your scanner. Here is a suggestion, for easy scanning I recommend a Regency Touch K500 Scanner. It may be hard to find one though, Regency went out of business a while back, but I had the K500 and it was the best scanner I ever had.
