How do you set up the scanner to scan police and ems channels


First you'll need a list of frequencies to program. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you've selected your frequencies, power the scanner ON and

1. Press E/PGM to enter the program mode (the scanner turns on the
PGM icon).

2. If the current channel is not the one you want to program, enter the
memory number then press HOLD.

3. Enter the frequency including the decimal point, then press E/PGM.

4. To program the next memory, press  or  and repeat step 3. To
program a different memory, repeat from step 2.

5. To exit program mode, press HOLD or SCAN or change the scanner’s mode.

Notes:
• Any frequency you program replaces the previous memory contents.
• If you enter a frequency you have already stored in a different
memory in Step 3, the scanner beeps and displays the channel
where you have previously stored the frequency. If you want to store
the frequency anyway, press E/PGM a second time in Step 3.
• To clear the contents of a memory, enter “0” in Step 3.
• Channels you program are automatically unlocked (see
“Locking/Unlocking Memories) and have Delay turned on (See
“Setting Channel Delay”).

I have a problem programming my uniden scanner


You didn't mention whether or not you have a manual for the scanner, so here's a link where you can download it:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC246Tom.pdf

Conventional frequency systems and trunking systems require different programming steps, and the manual will walk you through them in detail. You can program the scanner manually, using the keypad, or you can use the included cable with appropriate software to program using your computer. No-cost software is available on the Uniden web site, or you can purchase more useful software from BuTel. ScannerMaster.com is the best source for the BuTel software.

Have uniden 396T. Control channel now on one system does not work


Have you put in more than one control channel for your area.

I always put as many of the red or blue Control channels in my area. I counted 23 Control Channels for the whole system. I would put everyone in if it were me.

I set the system up as "Control Channel Only".

In a metroploitan area you should be able to pick up another control channel on the system.

I use the Arc396Pro Software ato program my scanner. (available at ScannerMaster) I know in the Pro version you can download the information directly into your scanner. You can try this to be sure your settings are going in correctly.

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.

Hope this helps you out, let us know,, Mechanic
