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:

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

I'm not picking up any local police channels can I program some in? and where can I find the codes for Philadelphia?

Your PRO-82 is fairly simple to program, and you can find detailed instructions in the factory manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

FYI, though, many areas have upgraded to trunking systems for their law enforcement communications. If this is the case in your community, you will need to purchase a trunking scanner to listen in.

I cleared my scanner pro-82 now how do i program the channels back. the bank1 is blinking and is on channel 1. i do not have any scan codes for local fd/pd in the 78801 area zip code.

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're really NOT codes), visit:

To program known frequencies into your scanner,

1. Press PGM. PGM appears. Then enter the channel number (1-200) where you want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
2. Use the number keys and DELAY/. to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel.
Your scanner automatically rounds the entered frequency down to the closest valid frequency. For example, if you enter a frequency of 151.473, your scanner accepts it as 151.470.

Press DELAY/.if you want the scanner to pause 2 seconds on this channel before it proceeds to the next channel after a transmission ends. The scanner also stores this setting in the channel.

To program the next channel in sequence, press PGM and repeat Steps 2 and 3.

If your local PD is using a trunked or digital system you will not be able to monitor them with the BC72XLT.

In case you need information on the programming itself, here's a link to the manual for your scanner:

Hello, i just got my scanner working and need to know what everyone is talking about. How do I find all the codes for san joaquin count california? so, pd, fire, etc? thank you My scanner is not the one...

Congrats on entering the scanner world. Two different points of information you'll need:
1. Local municipal services' radio frequencies
2. Download a "10-code" definition list

If you google search San Joaquin County and "radio frequencies" you get a list of all the local radio frequencies that the local services in your area are broadcasting on. Then you can program them into your scanner... sorry if you already figured this part out..
Secondly, you can download a police call 10-code definition list and you be up and running. Print out your code list and you'll have alot of them memorized real quick. Also you'll get used to the local abbreviations being used in your area... for example in my area, "ECR" means El Camino Real.. a main street near here.
Have a blast..

My bearcat scanner BC147xlt will not pick up codes in my area

Press the WEATHER button. If the scanner picks up a weather broadcast then you either have the wrong frequencies programmed in for your area, or it's possible that you're in a "dead" zone where you just won't receive much without an outdoor antenna. If no weather broadcast is received, chances are that the scanner's processor is "fried." Yours is an old scanner, and they do wear out.

For local frequencies, try or Both have excellent databases.

No problem!
First if you don't have an owner's manual you can download a copy free HERE

Be sure to read all of's got great info to get you comfortable with all the controls of your scanner.

Secondly you'll need local radio frequencies for your area.
Do a search enter "radio frequencies" and also the name of your city, county and state.
You'll find people may have posted lists of frequencies for your area.

Print out the lists and then by following the step by steps in the owner's manual, enter each frequency into your scanner .

Once you've got them entered... you'll be ready to scan!
For understanding the 10-code language used, do a google search for "10-codes" and you should be able to find a list of definitions... They'll also use alot of local abreviations for street names and locations and those will be understood more as you listen to your local calls for a while.
good luck and have fun...and be safe.
