Turn the squelch back until it screams at you and then turn it forward until the radio JUST gets quiet. If you have over squelched, you will also block the signals.

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.

Your scanner is a basic 10-channel "oldie" and it's fairly simple to program and operate. To enter/program a known frequency:

- Power the scanner On
- Press MANUAL to stop scanning
- Press MANUAL repeatedly to advance to the channel that you wish to program
- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.225).
- Press E to enter the frequency into memory

Press the MANUAL key to advance through the channels, and press SCAN when you're ready to listen.

Lost manual and cannot program scanner bc145xl


Hi,
Try these instructions from Wiki.answers

Turn on unit.
Press MANUAL button.
Press MANUAL button again to select the channel you want to program. Note the channel in the display. If there is a hyphenated symbol in the upper left corner the channel has been locked out. Press the LOCKOUT button once to remove the symbol or press the LOCKOUT button to lock a channel out. To find out if there is a frequency programed into that channel, press the PREVIEW button. Each digit of the frequency that is stored in memory will be displayed in the LED display. To program a new frequency into that channel, simply press the digits of the frequency you want, including the decimal point. Press the "E" keypad key to enter it into memory. If you get a "E" displayed in the LED display, the frequency was entered wrong, is not a valid frequency or is out of range for the scanner. Last but least, the scanner is not working properly. If the channel is active, (communications going over it) set SQUELCH to higher number, until you hear the communications or just noise. To set the SQUELCH, select a channel that has only noise and turn it down to the point the noise disappears. You make have to readjust it to your liking. Once you have the channels programed you can select the SCAN button to listen to all the channels or select the MANUAL button to listen to just one channel. If there are channels that you don't want to hear during the scan mode, go to MANUAL and select the channel you don't want to hear and press LOCKOUT button. Then press SCAN again it will only scan channels you want to hear.

Hope this helps.

Need to know how to program a radio shack pro-94 handheld scanner


press the "prog" key followed by the "Trunk" key then the number "1" key.
Press the "down arrow" key until you see the initials Ed on the screen
Press the "E" key.
Enter the frequencies (including the decimals)
you must press the E key and the Prog key after each frequency, after you finish entering your frequencies, press the scan key.

If you need to clear your scanner, turn it off, press and hold down the number 2 and number 9 keys, while holding them down turn the scanner back on, "clear" should start flashing on the screen, once "clear" stops flashing you can enter the frequencies.

Scanning programmed channels


Not exactly. You can program channels however into the Private bank. To do so though you must search for the channel first...This may simply mean going to a channel you already know by using the band button to start searching...Push the hold button to stop it close to the frequency and then use the arrow keys to get to the exact frequency. then push the Prog button. After pushing it, push the Private button (you will see CH next to the frequency) using the arrow keys select the channel you want to store on and push Prog again. To scan the stored channels simply push the private button...Done! It can be a tedious process...expecially with 50 channels....but It's the only way I know how to do it...Good luck!
