PROGRAM FREQ IN BC142XL


Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC
142XL scanner.

Turn it on. Push the MANUAL button to stop it from scanning.

Push number 1, then push MANUAL again. This should leave you on
channel one.

Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
E. Press REVIEW at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the frequency coverage list below.

Push MANUAL to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push E. Push MANUAL to step to channel three. Repeat this process until all ten channels are programmed, or you've run out of frequencies to enter.

Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Frequency Coverage:

20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)

Cant program frequencies into my uniden bc72xlt scanner


Just to verify you are trying to program frequencies the scanner is able to receive.
This unit is limited to the following freq range.
25.0-27.995
28.0-29.695
29.7-49.995
50.0-54.0 5
108.0-136.9875
137.0-143.995
144.0-147.995
148.0-174.0 5
406.0-419.99375
420.0-449.99375
450.0-469.99375
470.0-512.0 6.25

If the frequencies your are trying to enter or outside these bands you will get a error.

Next Direct Entry Mode Programming
Press Func. + PGM

How to install new freq in a Uniden BC 560XLT


For the BC 560 XLT, choose "MANUAL" mode on front of scanner. Push the manual button until u reach the number you want to program on your scanner ( 1-16) press the "E" button or "Enter" enter your number i.e. 555.555 in the six digit format with the decimal after the first 3 (industry standard) than press the "E" or "Enter" again. You're done. Hit scan or if u want you can press "REVIEW" to double check your number. Works the same for all numbers or if you want to replace a frequency with another.

I need help programing my scanner


Should have a button that reads "PROGRAM". Push it first, then enter your frequency (example 154.55). Then push button marked "ENTER".
Depending on the frequency range that you entered it will take it or state Error. Let me know how you do.

Programing for uniden bearcat scanner bc 144xl


danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.
