Hi I have a vertex vx2100 radio and I need to know if I can use it as a police radio scanner

Yes. The Vertex VX2100 is a VHF radio which can be programmed to frequencies between 134-174 MHz. You would need to program in the frequencies you are wanting to scan as receive only (no transmit) into the 8 channels of the radio. You would need to acquire the frequencies you need, as well as programming equipment, or take the radio to a dealer for programming.

Best regards.

We cant figure out how to program our bc355c scanner and where to find the codes so we can get it programed and start using it

The BC355C is a factory-programmed scanner, and you cannot program it in the normal manner (entering frequencies via the keyboard). You can, however, transfer a displayed frequency in SEARCH or SCAN mode to your PRIVATE bank. Detailed instructions for doing this are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're not codes), and a lot of other useful scanning information, here:

I inherited a uniden bearcat BC147xlt! How do I

I was unable to locate a manual, but this is a basic 16-channel scanner, and the frequency coverage is probably listed on the ID plate. To program, turn the scanner ON and use the MANUAL button to stop scanning and to advance the scanner to the channel that you want to program. Enter the frequency that you want to program, including the decimal, then push the E (Enter) key. Use the MANUAL key to advance to the next channel, and program as above.

GP300 frequency programing

Here is what you would need: RIB (radio interface box), HKN9857 programming cable and HVN9128 programming software. You are correct the software is only capable of running on a DOS box, such as a 286 or 386. The software mentioned is Motorola proprietary and is available to Authorized Motorola dealers by subscription only.

The book also shows a cloning cable HKN9755 as being available. Don't know anymore details on it.

Lastly, the cost of programming to your FCC assigned frequencies would be approx. $15 per radio, and less for cloning like models. It might be less expensive to have the radio programmed by a dealer. Just an FYI.

Best regards

Scanner problem

check this link for user manual if you need it
to heard trunking you should check if your scanner can handle this communications protocols.
to set frequencies, you should know wich band are they working, VHF, UHF, or 800, to start scanning.
Even they are in trunking, you will heard trunking channels but maybe just one side of the communications
