If you know the freq. codes, push hold, the bank number you want to store it in, push func., then push E(for program), type in the code(this includes the decimal), then push E. DLY will show up for a delay if there's not a transmission on the freq.

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
Press E to enter ch in current location
To change location pres func + Up ^ or down key to choose location then press E
Enter your freq then press E

Hope this helps.

Can't program


Tell me your locale and I'll get you a local frequency chart online. Or if you wish, go to google.com, type in your county and the words "radio frequencies" you should get a list of all the public services as well as TV station radios etc.

How To Manually Selct A Channel?


You are not in the programmable channel mode, so you can only receive preprogrammed frequencies. Press the "hold" button, then the "func" key, then the "E" key. Now type the frequency you wish to program & press "E" again. To continue to the next channel, press "E" & repeat the programming procedure.

If it just seems to be "stuck" on static, you probably need to adjust the Squelch. Try turning the squelch down until the static stops.
If you haven't programmed any frequencies into the banks, scanning won't do anything. Press "Func" and "Scan" to perform a Search. This way, if you find a frequency with a lot of chatter, you can program it into a bank for scanning later.
The easiest thing to do is to find frequencies for your local police, fire, etc. on the internet & program them into the various banks on the scanner.
