There are two ways to program your scanner. One is to do it manually. The second is to use a computer. The easiest way especially if you are programming alot of frequencies and alpha tags is to use a computer. Having said this I believe that you first should learn how to program manually so that you understand how the scanner works.

Email me and let me know what area you live in and give me an idea of what you would like to listen to. I may be able to help.

I have a uniden bc246t how can i get it to load channels, scan hold nothing stored


Hi,

Rather than loading frequencies via software, try programming manually, if that's going to be to hard, perhaps getting hold of a copy of the user manual (available from Radioshack or similar store) and it will tell you how in a step by step way.

You must have a list of frequencies in hard copy format to be able to do this, I've never used software to program my scanners, including my Uniden UBCD996T digital scanner, after all, half the fun is programming your favorites manually, so you learn how the scanner works.

I hope this is useful to you.
Cheers,
Peter

Where can i get a instruction manual for my bc246t i cant program my codes into my scanner


You can download and print the factory manual for your scanner, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC246Tom.pdf

You can also find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're not codes), and a lot of other useful scanning information, here:

Programming my bc246t


Hello Ranger66,
I had the same problem. did you set the radio to "xfer information"? if not, to do this follow these steps
1. press menu display ---menu--- and program system under
2. twist thr top right knob until "xfer information is displayed".
3. press the "E" or yes button, this will disply the baud rate.

check to see if the radio connects.
