Those are "birdies" or internally generated signals, you have to lock those frequencies out if they are programmed into the memory, or set your search limits so you do not pass them if its in a seach mode.

Best of luck with that Betty. I am surprised US laws allow you to listen to police and emergency bands. In the UK we could get arrested for that and the equipment confiscated.

It all became less interesting when radios were changed to transmit and receive on widely different frequencies and automatically select different channels to find clear air. Going digital further complicated things.

Knowing the frequencies is unlikely to be helpful - you need to know the frequency band(s) allocated to those services and keep scanning them until something is found. I can't help with that other than tell you, you are likely to find the experience less interesting or satisfying than you imagine.

How do i program frequencies into my uniden bearcat scanner bc350a

The BC350C is a factory pre-programmed scanner, so you cannot program it in the standard manner - entering frequencies via the keyboard. You can, however, transfer a displayed frequency from the SCAN or SEARCH mode into the PRIVATE bank. Details for doing this are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

How do i program the bc350a scanner

Your scanner does not have a standard keyboard programming function. Rather you must "capture" a frequency in SCAN or SEARCH mode, and then transfer (program) it into the scanner's PRIVATE bank. For detailed instructions on doing this, you can download/print the scanner's operating manual here:

It will not scan.

I think you are receive a data transmission or it is a frequency associated with some other local source like a satellite dish for example, just lock it out.

I have 3 zone valves in my house and even when they are turned off the heater keeps turning on whats going on ?

It could be a couple of different reasons. It is possible that even though the thermostat is not calling the end switch on a zone valve may be stuck. Is there a zone that is warmer than it should be? Another thing, depending on the frequency of the cycling it could be a normal part of operation. (the boiler may maintain a low limit)

Hope this helps
