Did you get it recently programmed for your local area? Radio shack can usually do that for free, or you can purchase a data cable for the scanner from Radio shack for about $30-35 (a bit expensive, yes :| ) . I also have one of these scanners, there very nice but you have to play with it a bit to figure out how to use it's functions. :) LOL!

How do I program a uniden BC 145xl base scanner


  • Press the power button to turn the scanner on.
  • Press "MAN" (for manual)
  • Now pick a channel where you want to store a frequency at and enter it on the keypad.
  • Now press the "MAN" button again to go to that channel.
  • Now enter the frequency you want into that channel and don't forget to include the decimal point.
  • Now press the "E" button (for enter) and you have programmed one frequency.
  • Repeat these steps until your scanner is programmed.
  • Now you can press the up and down arrow buttons to scroll manually through the channels or just press "scan" to scan through them.
  • Make sure to keep your squelch just above the noise so you pick up stations well.

  • Hope this helps.

While listening to my scanner every so often, does not seems to be a specific interval, maybe 3 or 4 seconds usually, I get a silent pause missing conversation. For instance the ambulance dispatcher might...


sounds like you have another channel set for priority and it is scanning back to check that channel. In the manual mode scroll thru channel's until you find one set with a "p" or "pri" on the screen. Hit the priority button and this should resolve the problem.

My uniden bearcat 50 channel 800mhz stop the police,fire ect.. and only gives me weather.. why? can you help ?


  • You can try pressing "Manual" and then "Scan" or "Band" buttons from the weather setting to get you back to scanning the police, fire,etc.
  • Make sure you don't have a WX (Weather) frequency programmed into on of the regular 50 channels or the scanner will continue to stop every time around as it will pick up the WX frequency.
  • Make sure you have your scanner programmed as well.

Pro 97 Handheld - Adapter Issue


I have the same problem with my pro-79 scanner. The adapter from my Uniden cordless phone works on my scanner, but then the phone won''t work.
I have rechargeable batteries but they don't stay charged very long in the scanner. I know this didn't solve your problem but thought I would let you know about the cordless phone adapter.
