.........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:

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.

Wheres the antenna?


Hi i'm Ryan, the antenna should be located in the rear window (glass-integrated FM diversity antenna) It should plug into the back of the radio, not sure if you can use that location instead.

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.

This 10dBi omni directional antenna enables you to very easily extend the range of your wireless network. By linking the Omni Antenna to your wireless router, you gain the benefits of an optimum wireless signal while minimising the number of ‘dead spots’ (points in your home where the signal is either weak or lost).
However it does not fit the following types of routers,modems and accespoints:
WL-143
WL-122v2
WL-114/WL-517
WL-114v2
WL-108/WL109
WL-111
WL-106
WL-025
WL-018v2
These antenne's will also fit other brands of wireless products that use an SMA connector
