the beep are known as "over beeps", they are generated at the end of a transmission by the transmitting raido to signal that the user has taken his or her finger off the transmit button and has ended transmission, like how they used to say "over". as for the hissing, have you tried adjusting the squelch?

You will need more information of the Police frequencies in your area. They may be on a conventional one channel at a time set up or on a Trunking system.

Trunking systems will change frequencies and a conversation can jump around channels.
The reason being is a Trunked system will use a group of channels and their radios will be given any open channel in the group by the system controller computer at the site depending on what brand of system they have. The conversation may stay on one channel or jump to one or another.

If you can find the local radio technician at a two way shop or ham operator in your town. He or she might be able to tell you what frequencies and codes to put in your Talk-Groups.

Your scanner is a bit more complicated than a regular vhf / uhf type scanner so it has to be set up to work in your area and most all areas are different.

Would like to add a frequency to a Radio Shack

Absolutely. Just find either an empty channel or one that you want to delete - and program the new frequency. Doing so will not "mess up" any of the other programming.

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 clear all channels and start over putting in new ones

There is no global clear/erase function on the BC350C, but programming a new frequency on a channel automatically deletes/erases the old frequency. To delete an inactive or troublesome frequency, program "000.0" in that channel. Doing so will deleted the previously programmed frequency and set the LOCKOUT to ON for that channel. For more information on deleting frequencies, see page 27 of your operating manual.

Need the manual? You can download it here:

Other than size of the scanners there is no difference. I used to think that a home Base station scanner would work better. This is not true. Every scanner I purchase now is a portable. I use them at home and even hook them up to an antenna on the roof. They work great and you always have a choice to take them on the road with you.

Your problem specifically sounds like it is probably a programming error. Take a look at you frequencies on to make sure you have the most current. then look up in you manual the programming section in your manual and plug in the frequencies and it should work fine.
