How do I get BC144XL channels into the scanner

I lost the booklet; nothing happens on any channel except whatever is on 5. I don't know how to get anything else to work. Is there a way to get the frequencies? I'm absolutely dumb as to how to use this machine and what I do. Can anyone lead this blind person? Or, tell me how to replace the booklet? That may help me....thanks!!

Ok answers to both of you questions. First, in order to get you booklet go to:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/2056189/UBC144XLT

I found your booklet right there in black and white. The programming instructions are on page 11 of the viewer and page 9 in the manual itself.

Here is how to program a channel.
1. hit manual to stop the unit from scanning.
2. Input the Channel # you want to program.
3. Press manual again to go directly to that channel.
4. press the frequency you want on that channel, remember the decimal point.
5. Press "E" to save or "Enter" the frequency.
6. Lastly assure that this channel is not "Locked Out" by seeing that the L/O is not illuminated on the display when you are on this channel.

Hope this helps,

I have a bc144xl and I don't know how to cancel a frequency so I can put new frequency in. Please Help!!!! Thanks. Chris


There's no need to "cancel" or "clear" a frequency. Just select the channel and program the new frequency -- that will automatically override the old programming. Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

How do I program my bearcat 144xl scanner?


The BC144XL is one of the few scanners that I haven't been able to locate a manual for, but programming it is fairly straight forward. Here's some guidance from Uniden:

Here are basic instructions for programming nearly all of the older scanners that Uniden produced. When the scanner is turned on press the MANUAL key, then press the channel number that you want to program first, then the MANUAL key again. This will stop the scanner from scanning and hold it on the channel that you want to program.
Then you enter the frequency (be sure to use the decimal point in the right area when entering in the frequency) and then press the E or ENTER button to save the frequency on the channel. You are now finished programming the channel. To advance to the next channel simply press the MANUAL key and enter your next frequency the same way that you entered it on the previous channel (as described at the beginning of this paragraph).

I hope this helps.
