This radio has a standard BNC antenna jack. Radio Shack does now offer an antenna with a BNC connector on the end that you can use with this radio.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Uniden Bearcat Scanner Model# BC147XLT

The BC147XLT is too old to obtain a manual from Uniden, but here's how you program it:

Turn it on & press 'Manual', then enter the number of the channel you wish to program & press 'Manual' again. Now enter the frequency you want to put in that channel, example 155.550, and press "Enter'. Then press manual to go to the next channel or repeat the first procedure to select a different channel other than the next one. Repeat the programming procedure for each channel.

SOURCE: manual for Bearcat Scanner BC 140 10 channel

I couldn't locate a manual for your oldie, but it's fairly simple to operate.

  1. Turn the scanner ON.
  2. Press "Manual" to stop scanning. Use the keyboard to choose the channel you want to enter your first frequency into. If you want channel 2, press the number 2 on the keyboard and then "Manual" again. If you want channel 12, press the 1 and then the 2 and then "Manual" again.
  3. Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point. For instance, if the frequency is 555.789, enter 5, 5, 5 and then the dot button, then 7, 8 and 9. Then press "Enter" to complete the setup.
  4. Use the "Manual" button to move to the next channel to enter the next frequency. Continue this process until you have all frequencies entered.
  5. Complete your entries and then press "Scan." Set the squelch by turning the "Squelch" knob all the way up and backing off until you hear no static.
  6. Lock out a channel that is annoying you by pressing the "Lockout" button. If you want to listen to the channel again, simply select "Manual," find the channel by entering it on the keypad and then hit "Lockout" again

It used to be that you could reset a Uniden scanner by holding down the #2 and #9 buttons while turning on the radio - that MIGHT do a factory reset for you. Let me know.

How do i start scanning for channels on my bc 855 xlt scanner


Hi,

Firstly, you need to program your favourite frequencies into it, before you can receive anything, all the info on setting up your scanner is in the user manual that came with your scanner, if you bought it new, that is.

I have a Uniden Bearcat "BC 855 XLT" scanner. It scans properly, the antenna is good and the solder connection is good. Yet is will not recieve a signal even the weather. What part needs to be replaced?


There's no telling without completely troubleshooting the unit, and that would likely cost you more than the unit is worth. Used BC855XLT scanners are selling for between $15 and $30 on eBay . . . .
