Question about Uniden Bearcat BC345CRS Police Scanner
I can get all the channels except my local police
Posted by Anonymous on
That's because many police departments use a baud rate (similar to old fax modems) to decrypt the voice and then put it back together again with the right encryption key

Follow the link below to download/print the manual for your scanner. You may or may not be able to hear the services you mentioned using this scanner due to its limited frequency coverage. Many public service agencies now transmit in the 800MHz range, and many have upgraded to trunked and even digital radio systems. I cannot find any reference to PCH LOCK, but an educated guess would be that it means all programmed channels are locked out. If none of the 10 channels contain programmed frequencies, displays will show 000.0000MHz, and all channels will be locked out. Programming a frequency into any channel should override the lockout. On the other hand, the message could indicate that this old scanner is tired and in need of replacement. Here's the link to your manual:

First you need to know what frequencies are in use in your area. For a comprehensive database, visit:
To enter (program) a frequency for future scanning:
- Slide the MODE switch to Scanner
- Press the E (PGM) key. This will turn on the PGM indicator at the top right of the display.
- Press the UP or DOWN arrow (above the SCAN and HOLD keys) to advance to the desired channel, OR enter the channel number using the keypad.
- Press HOLD
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (e.g. 155.67).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- To continue programming, use the UP or down key to advance OR enter a channel number, press HOLD, and continue programming as above.
When you're finished programming, press HOLD or SCAN.
I hope this helps. I have a BC370CRS on my desk, and I found that the programming is fairly simple -- once I got used to it.
NOTE: The BC370CRS will NOT work with trunked or digital radio systems. If these are in use in your area you will need a different scanner to listen in.
