Other than size of the scanners there is no difference. I used to think that a home Base station scanner would work better. This is not true. Every scanner I purchase now is a portable. I use them at home and even hook them up to an antenna on the roof. They work great and you always have a choice to take them on the road with you.

Your problem specifically sounds like it is probably a programming error. Take a look at you frequencies on Radioreference.com to make sure you have the most current. then look up in you manual the programming section in your manual and plug in the frequencies and it should work fine.

@cant seem to find south australian police frequences


If you can monitor other frequencies, chances are the south australian police are in radio silence, in other words they are not transmitting as of this time, no need to worry, your scanner is ok, just keep on scanning. Happy Monitoring ;-)

How do i find the 6 pre programmed emergency channels on my bc72xlt scanner. i don't have a manual for this scanner. all i have used it for is nascar races.


Repeatedly pressing the HOLD key will advance the unit through all channels and bring up anything that you've programmed into it, and repeatedly pressing the SVC key will advance the scanner through the preprogrammed services (police, fire, marine, etc.). For more information you can download/print your scanner's manual here:

How to receive dispatch reception on uniden bc72xlt


Most dispatch communications in and around major metropolitan areas are now handled via trunked radio systems which your BC72XLT is not capable of monitoring. Some dispatch, especially fire and EMS, should be available to you, and possibly some police activity. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and services in your area, visit:
