Reset bct8 back to factory settings


Turn the scanner off, then hold down the 2 , 9 and HWY (State) button....all three at the same time and then turn the scanner back on. This does a full reset to factory settings.

with radio off, press and hold 2, 9, & hold button, then turn on and hold all three for at least two seconds to reset.

With the scanner off, firmly hold down 2+9+State at the same time while turning the scanner on. (You may have do it several times) When you see (Clear)
its reset.

.........i want to switch my scanner over to


Sorry, but the Uniden Bearcat BCT8 is an analog-only scanner, and there is no magic that will enable it to receive and process digital signals. EDACS, however, is NOT a digital system. It's discussed at length in the BCT8 operating manual, which also contains step-by-step programming instructions for EDACS systems. You can also find a lot of useful information on EDACS, and specifics on systems in use in your area, at: www.RadioReference.com

If you don't have the manual for your scanner, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Can this scanner convert over to be ditital.in order to pick up live police ..


Sorry, but the BCT8 is an analog only scanner, and there is no way to convert it to digital. Your only option is to upgrade to a scanner that is factory equipped to handle digital signals.

Is there a Master reset feature for the Uniden Bearcat BCT8 scanner? Need to reprogram and start from scratch. See nothing in the manual on how to perform this function.


turn off scanner hold down the state/highway the number 2 and 9 then while holding the 3 buttons turn your scanner back on while holding the state/highway, 2 and 9 buttons if you did everything correct you will see a clear message show up and about 2 seconds later hear a beep

Cant seem to get it to pick up local frequencies


Can't really diagnose the problem without more information, but make sure that your antenna is connected properly and that you've programmed frequencies that are active in your area. For a quick function check, program the frequency 162.55, 162.4, 162.475, 162.425, 162.45, 162.5, 162.525, 161.65, 161.775, or 163.275 into your scanner. One of them, probably the first one, will be the primary weather frequency in your area. If the scanner picks up the weather broadcast you'll know that it's working.

I am trying to program my Uniden BCT8 to track LTR systems but having problems.


LTR systems must be entered in a specific order so that channel 1 is 1st, channel 2 is 2nd etc...
Are you sure that the BCT8 tracks LTR systems? A Radio Shack PRO 92 tracks all 3 trunking systems (analog) including Motorola and LTR, while some Uniden only track 1, and some don't do trunking systems at all.

Programming error BCT8 Uniden


Hello.
Back to answer my own question.
I just found the problem. If you try to program one of these scanners (Uniden BCT8) and you keep getting a "pr9-loc" message every time you try to enter a frequency and "M-LOCK" is showing in the upper right corner of the display press and hold the M-Lock (E) key until it beeps twice and "M-LOCK" disappears from the display. You're now set to program.
Keith.
