I cant program my bc72xlt hand held scanner

  • Before I list the steps on how to Set up your scanner I will say that I can get some frequencies for you if you list your city, state or zip code. I can also give you a manual upon request, free.

  1. First step is to get some frequencies.
  2. First press the "HOLD" button.
  3. Now enter the number for the channel that you want to store a frequency in.
  4. Now press "func" and "prg" buttons together and the channel will appear.
  5. Now enter the frequencies with the numbers on the keypad, don't forget the decimal [.] .
  6. Now press the "E" button to store the frequency.
  7. Repeat the above steps until you have all frequencies stored you want.
  • If during programming you ever see the word "error" then you entered an invalid frequency.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

How do i adjust the squlech on my unidenbc12xlt hand held scanner

The actual setting will vary according to the strength of the signals you're receiving, so it may require adjustment as you move around. With the unit scanning, turn the squelch down slowly until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise. They slowly bring the level up until scanning resumes.

Our scanner is a uniden BC72XLT and when it says bank the 1 is flashing and the 2,6,9 &10 are missing how can I fix that we had a friend program it when we got it and he has moved now can you help?

while your scanner is scanning just press the numbers of the banks that are not shown,(3,4,5,7,and 8) and then it should scan those banks as well.Also if you want to turn a band off just press it while it is scanning.
