Why won't my BC145XL scan

push manual on the scanner push manual again to see if the channel changes if so then push the scan button , if still no scan see if the volume is turned up. if not turn it up and see if you have any white noise , if you have what is called white noise turn the squelch till the noise is gone then press scan if it still does not scan you may have all the channels locked out and if so they need to be unlocked refer to the manual to know how to unlock channels then try again if that does not work scanner may need to be repaired

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...

If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

How do I program my bc145xl scanner

I searched but could not find a manual for the BC145XL. Your keyboard looks identical to the UBC144XL though, so the instructions for it should work on your scanner. You can download the manual for the 144 here:

Cant get programed

Programming the BC350 is fairly straight forward, and the operating manual has very good step-by-step instructions. You can download and print the manual by following the link below. The programming instructions are detailed on pages 24 through 28.

I have a bc145xl and i dont know how to put in my frequency channels i got

I couldn't locate a manual for you, but the 16-channel BC145XL is a fairly typical Uniden scanner.

Turn the scanner power ON.

Press the MANUAL button to stop scanning.

Press the MANUAL button repeatedly to advance to the channel that you wish to program.

Enter the frequency that you wish to program, including the decimal point. Frequency range of your scanner is 29-54, 136-174, and 406-512MHz.

Press E (Enter) to cpmlete the process.

To continue programming, press MANUAL to advance to the next channel, and start the steps again.
