I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND HAD TO GO TO ONE CHANNEL AT ATIME IN MANUAL AND HIT THE PROGRAM BUTTON TO RESET IT TO MEMEORY. YOU CAN TELL IF IT IS THE PROBLEM IF YOUR SCREEN READS "ALL CHANNELS LOCKED-OUT"

How do you start to program a bct8 800 mz scanner


Programming conventional frequencies into the scanner's PRIVATE bank is simple, but programming trunking systems is a detailed process that will take some research and probably some practice. The best instructions for both types of programming are found in the factory operating manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

Scanner locks on tower frequency


If you are using a trunking system, then it sounds like you just have it set for "FM" mode, instead of "MO" Motorola trunking. You will have to use your owners manual to see how to set up a trunking system by putting the control channel (tower) frequencies in a special mode, then it will work if it is a PRO 96, PRO 106, etc.

How to program a radio shack pro 163 police scanner


The 163 is a trunking scanner, so programming instructions are long and detailed, and they vary for each type of trunking system. Programming instructions are best explained in the factory operating manual. If you don't already have it, you can download/print the manual here:

http://www.scancat.com/OnLineHelp/OEM_Radio_Owners_Manuals/PRO-163-164-OWNERS%20MANUAL_2000164_PM_EN.pdf

You may also want to join a users group for the 163. Check Yahoo or just Google PRO-163.

The site also has information that explains the workings of trunking systems, links to users groups, and a lot of other useful scanning information.

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

How to program the frequencies on a uniden bearcat 50 channel 800 mhz radio scanner?


To program the majority of non-trunking Bearcat scanners,\:

- Power the scanner ON
- Press MANUAL to stop scanning
- Enter the channel # to program followed by MANUAL (OR just press MANUAL repeatedly to advance to the desired channel).
- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press E (ENTER)

If these steps don't work with your scanner, please provide your model number and I'll get back to you with specifics.

MEMORIES & MEMORY SCANNING:
• The 855 receives mainly via frequencies programmed into its 50 memory channels. It does not have a VFO or dial mode as such, but can scan within two frequencies.
• To scan memory channels, press SCAN. To hold a channel, press MANUAL.
• The 50 channels are divided into 5 banks (Bank 1: Channels 1-10, Bank 2: 11-20, etc.).
• Any of the 5 banks can be turned off from scanning. To turn a bank on/off, press its number while in Scan Mode. Active banks are illuminated in the display.
• SPEED toggles between 8 & 16 channels per second in both scan & search modes.
TO ENTER A FREQUENCY IN A MEMORY CHANNEL:
• Press MANUAL.

I couldn't locate the manual for your scanner, but it's basically the same as the BC860XLT, except that the 860 has 100 channels. Other than that, all controls and functions are the same. You can download and print the manual for the 860 here:

When scanning the radio resumes before end of transmission


The manual states that the scanning will halt whenever the squelch is broken by a transmission, just as expected. When the transmission is complete, the radio continues scanning. This makes hearing any reply nearly imposible to monitor - and is the problem I believe you are describing.

Page 37 of the manual says that a 2 second delay can be assigned to a frequency whenever the radio has paused on a channel. Simply press the DELAY key on the scanner to assign the delay to the channel. If there is no additional transmission within 2 seconds, scanning will resume.

Below is a copy of the manual to reference or print if you can't find yours (you'll need a free program called "Adobe Reader" found at www.adobe.com to view or print this manual).

Trunking frequencies


Did you initialize your scanner? If you did, then you also deleted your trunking banks (1-9). These are the banks that store the channels that were inputted by you. The scanner will display "All channels locked out," when all of these banks are empty. You may have to put the frequencies in again. I suggest using win97. There is a 30day trial. This is the only program that I know of that will work with this scanner.

The pre-programmed channels should still be there. If you press and hold the scan button for a couple of seconds you should see the signal stalker running.

Good luck.

Edacs frequencies


Are you getting talkgroup ID's? If not, you're probably monitoring the EDACS system in conventional mode rather than trunking. When the scanner hears those beeps, it's supposed to go back to monitoring the control channel if you're in either trunking mode (search or scan). This also happens if the CC isn't coming in very well. If you're not in trunking mode, read the manual to find out more about programming and monitoring trunked systems. If you are in trunking mode and receiving ID's, the unit is probably malfunctioning.
