    When you say "nothing" do you mean that you are not receiving a signal on those frequencies or do you mean that the frequency is not showing up after you program it in?

Yeah the problem is this... those are just that suppose to be frequencies, most departments have changed their frequencies by the time those books are printed.
try radioreferance.com and search for your area.
Good luck

The frequencies in the manual are suggestions, and aren't necessarily correct for you location. Try setting up search parameters to locate active frequencies in your area, or check with an on-line database such as cityfreq.com for local frequencies.

    If you're following the manual for programming then you probably are not entering the correct frequencies for your area. I recommend that you check the extensive database at

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.

I recieved my fathers Uniden Bearcat BC80XLT after he passed away and I cant seem to be able to figure out how to re-program it for my area. I have the local scanner codes and need a little assistance...


Yours is a fairly simple one to program, and the best instructions are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC80XLTom.pdf

BTW, they're frequencies, not codes, and you can find a great database for your area at:

How to delete channels on the bc80xlt scanner


You can temporarily lock out a frequency by pressing the L/O key while the frequency is displayed, or can delete it by programming 0.0 (zero point zero) into the channel. Also, programming a new frequency into the channel will automatically delete/override the old frequency.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC80XLTom.pdf
