How do you start to program a bct8 800 mz scanner


Programming conventional frequencies into the scanner's PRIVATE bank is simple, but programming trunking systems is a detailed process that will take some research and probably some practice. The best instructions for both types of programming are found in the factory operating manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

How to porgram bc140police scanning radio


First, you'll need a list of frequencies to program into the scanner. The BC140 memory is limited to just ten channels, so you'll need to select your coverage carefully. For a detailed database of active frequencies in your area, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

Once you have your frequency list:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press the Manual key to stop scanning.
- Select the channel to program (1 through 10) by either entering it on the keyboard and then pressing Manual again, or by repeatedly pressing the Manual key to advance through the channels.
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.055).
- Press Enter (E) to save the frequency in the scanner's memory.
- Press Manual to advance to the next channel and enter your next frequency.

When you finish programming, press the Scan key to start scanning.

If you enter an out of band frequency, one that is not covered by the scanner, the display will show E for error.

How do delete a frequency code from my scanner i know how to program but dont know how to take a frequency off thanks


Just program 0.0 (zero point zero) into a channel to clear the existing frequency. Also, programming a new frequency into a channel will overwrite/delete the previously programmed freq.

How do i program my realistic pro-2025 scanner


PROGRAMMING CHANNELS

1. Turn on your scanner by turning the volume clockwise.

2. The scanner might start scanning. If so, press MANUAL to stop the
scanning.

3. Enter the channel number that you want to program and press MANUAL.

4. Enter a frequency including the decimal point. The decimal point shows
up on the display as a -- (dash).

5. Press Enter to store the frequency.

6. To confirm the proper entry, press REVIEW. The programmed frequency
appears on the display one digit at a time.

7. To program more channels repeat steps 3-4.

Programming error BCT8 Uniden


Hello.
Back to answer my own question.
I just found the problem. If you try to program one of these scanners (Uniden BCT8) and you keep getting a "pr9-loc" message every time you try to enter a frequency and "M-LOCK" is showing in the upper right corner of the display press and hold the M-Lock (E) key until it beeps twice and "M-LOCK" disappears from the display. You're now set to program.

Programming


If its just a normal frequency then select Hold/Resume and press the arrow keys until you find the selected channel, then program in the frequency for example 130.000 you have to make sure the decimal point goes in with the frequency then press (E) then press the arrow key up to go to the next channel and program and repeat steps.
Then select scan you may need to activate the banks so when scanning just press 1,2,3,4,5 so next to the bank icon all 5 should be up.
