How do i program the BC60XLT-1 scanner

This is a pretty straightforward scanner with 30 channels. To program it, turn the scanner ON, press the MANUAL button to stop scanning, and then use MANUAL to advance to the desired channel. Enter your desired frequency, including the decimal point, and then press E (Enter). Use the MANUAL button to advance to the next channel, and then proceed as above.

For complete information on your scanner, here's a link to the owners manual:

Can't change channel of a Motorola Visar Handie-Talkie FM Radio Model: H05RDD9AA4DN It seems that this radio operates in only one channel and I need to be able to chanmge channels. However everything else...

The Visar has a channel lock feature. If you hold down the two channel buttons at the same time, it will do one of two things depending on the settings. Either the channel will lock, or the channel numbers in the LCD will flip.
If you press the channel button and the "popples" "pop" (for lack of a better word) then the channel selection buttons re most likely OK. To fix it you just press both channel buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds. It will beep and you should be able to change the channels. If not, then it needs to be repaired.

I have two motorola xtn 446 there locked on the 1 station.

To program the radio:
1) Hold in the MON button and the PTT while turning the radio on, continue to hold the buttons in until the radio quits making noise.

2) Press the MENU button one time, this will take you to your FREQ. After selecting your FREQ

3) Press the MENU button again, select your CODE, press the menu button again

4) You will begin to walk through the other settings possible for the radio at each press of the menu button. Here are what you will see in no particular order:

4a) Hi Lo: this is a reference to narrow or wide band channel spacing. If you are in the US you should choose Lo as narrowband channel spacing is the newer FCC rules.

4b) A circle with a slash through it: This is your scramble feature. If you choose zero you have no scrambling.

4c) CH: This is where you tell your radio how many channels to have.

4d) Lock: Choose Y or N. This might be what you are referencing in your question. To unlock choose N for No.

4e) A face with wavy lines in front: This is mic gain. The normal setting is 2. However, if you have a soft or gruff voice you might want to choose 1 or 3 to compensate for the distortion heard on the other end.

4f) CA: This is call alert, which will cause a ring before you speak to alert the other radios users they have a call.

On each of these stops through the menu make your selection by using the + or - buttons, followed by pressing the menu button to lock in your new setting. ALL of your radios much match on all settings to work together correctly.

When you get to the end of the menu selections you will hear a different chirp. This will signal you are done. You can then shut off the radio and turn it back on normally to use it.

Each channel should accomodate upto 25 workers so if you program your radio for 4 channels, you will have enough radio workspace for 100 people. Typically most users do not need this much space, so it is advisable to keep your number of channels to a minimum, using only the ones necessary. It never hurts to have a second frequency just incase you run into traffic on your first one.

Can't Switch Frequencies

Your radio needs to be programmed to match the radios at work. Currently your channel 3 frequency is the same as work, but your code on channel 3 is not. Here is a step by step explanation:

1) Turn on the WORK radio, watch the upper right corner of the screen. It will flash the frequency number, followed by the code number. Note these numbers.

2) Put your radio in programming mode by turning on the radio while holding down the PTT and MON buttons. Continue to hold these buttons until the 'noise' stops.

3) Press the MENU button once. Now, using the + or - buttons choose the frequency number.

4) Press the MENU button to lock in your frequency. This will take you to your CODE. Press the + or - button to choose your CODE.

5) Press your MENU button to lock in your CODE.

6) At this point you can walk through the rest of programming features or simply shut the radio off and begin using it. Note: You will know when you are at the end of the programmable features because it will chirp a different beep than you have been hearing when you've pressed the MENU button to lock in your new setting.

If you need more assistance, give eradiostore a call.

Wont scan.the only channel's it will get is 11,21,41,61. when you hold the button down to talk it make's a squealing acts like it is locked.when you put it on the [set] switch it makes the noise...

Do you have a "lockout" feature in the radio?
Maybe try resetting the scanner and start over from the beginning. Usually by resetting, will disable any extra features (such as the lockout)
