For your frequency, go to the local radio shack and ask them to look up the frequency. If you have nothing to fear from your local jurisdiction, go directly to them and ask for the frequency. Programming is the easy part and obtaining the frequency not difficult.

How do i program realistic pro-59 scanner


http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/8567.htm

don't know what you will pickup. Nearly all law enforcement, ems, fire have gone to digital trunked systems that are encoded. The above link has a link to the operating manual. You will need to know the frequency of whatever you are wanting to listen to.

Will Realistic Pro 2021 receive digital frequencies?


If it does not say digital on the scanner the answer is no. If it does, most likely it is a trunking system and will require programming using software and a computer.

I have a Uniden BC560XLT police scanner. I don't know how to use it.


Why not go to the Uniden website for information. You may be able to download a copy of the manual for your scanner or get some basic information regarding programming

I can't get my uniden bcd396xt police scanner to talk. it will scan, but not talk


Hi Sue,

No it's not a Police scanner, rather a radio scanner.

I will scan, but not receive transmissions.

Two reasons for this:

1. Do you have any frequencies programmed in the scanner, if not, there's your first reason answered.

2. Do you have frequencies programmed but the channels are locked out? If so, there's reason 2 answered.

To unlock channels, you need to press Mon/Hold key to stop the unit from scanning. Now press mon/Hold key and as you do so, notice if you have frequencies programmed and not just a bunch of zeros showing on your display. If zeros are displayed, example: 000.0000MHz, then you need to program the scanner with your favorite frequencies, and I advise that Police should not be programmed. If you do have frequencies programmed, then using the Mon/Hold keys as stated above, go through each channel and unlock each channel using the L/O key, until the L/O icon on the display goes out.

I Hope I have assisted you with your query.

Cheers,
Peter

I need to reprogram my Realistic Pro-2023 police scanner. I do not have my local police codes nor do I know how to reprogram it. Help.


PROGRAMMING YOUR SCANNER

For a a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com


1. Turn on your scanner by turning VOLUME clockwise.

2. Press [MANUAL], enter the channel number you want to program, then
press [MANUAL] and [PROGRAM]. The channel number flashes to indicate
you are programming the channel.

3. Enter a frequency.

4. Press [ENTER] to store the frequency. If you make a mistake in Step
3, ERROR appears on the display. Proceed again from Step 3.

5. If you want your scanner to pause after each transmission before
scanning to the next channel, press [DELAY] so that DELAY appears in
the display. See "Using the Delay Feature."

6. To program more channels, repeat Steps 2-4. If you want to program
the next channel in sequence, simply press [PROGRAM] and repeat Steps
3 - 4.

SETTING THE VOLUME AND SQUELCH CONTROLS

Use the SQUELCH control to decrease your scanner's sensitivity to weak
signals. This allows the scanner to receive only the strongest
transmissions.

1. Turn the SQUELCH and VOLUME controls fully counterclockwise.

2. Turn the VOLUME control clockwise until you hear a hissing sound.

3. Slowly turn the SQUELCH control clockwise until the hissing sound
stops.

SCANNING THE CHANNELS

To begin scanning the channels, press [SCAN]. Your scanner scans through
all the channels except the ones you have locked out. Be sure to read the
following sections to get the full benefit from your scanner's special
features.

USING THE DELAY FEATURE

Many agencies use a two-way radio system that might have a 2 second silence
(or more) between a query and a reply. To keep from missing a reply,
program a delay on the channels you identify as operating this way.

To program a delay, select the channel and press [DELAY] so that DELAY
appears on the display. Now when your scanner pauses at an active channel
when scanning, it waits for 2 seconds after the completion of each
transmission on that channel before it resumes scanning.

If you do not want your scanner to pause, select the channel and be sure
that DELAY is not on the display. If DELAY appears on the display, press
[DELAY] to turn it off for that channel.

LOCKING OUT CHANNELS

You can make your scanner scan more efficiently by locking out channels
that you have not programmed. Manually select the channel and press [LOCK
OUT] so that LOCK OUT apperas on the display. This is also handy for
locking out channels that have a continuous transmission. You can still
manually select locked-out channels for listening.

To unlock a channel you have locked, manually select the channel and press
[LOCK OUT] so that LOCK OUT disappears from the display.

NOTE: You cannot lock out Channel 1.

USING THE PRIORITY FEATURE

Channel 1 is designated as your scanner's priority channel. You can turn
on the priority feature so that you do not miss transmissions on Channel 1,
even if you are monitoring another channel.

Press [PRIORITY] so that PRIORITY appears on the display. Now your scanner
checks Channel 1 every 2 seconds, and stays on the channel if there is any
activity.

MANUALLY SELECTING A CHANNEL

You can continuously monitor a specific channel without scanning. This is
useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to
miss any details-even though there might be periods of silence-or if you
want to monitor a specific channel.

Follow these steps to manually select a channel.

1. Press MANUAL.

2. Enter the channel number.

3. Press MANUAL again.

Or, if your scanner is scanning and stops at the desired channel, press
MANUAL one time. (Pressing MANUAL additional times causes your scanner
to step through the channels.)

LISTENING TO THE WEATHER BAND

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has allocated several channels
for use by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We
have preprogrammed your scanner with all of the frequencies available to
NOAA. To hear your local forecast and regional weather information, simply
press [WX]. Your scanner begins scanning through the weather band, and WX
SEARCH appears on the display.

Your scanner should stop within a few seconds, and you hear the local
weather broadcast. If the broadcast is weak, you can press [WX] again
to scan through the rest of the weather band.

How do you set the scanner to your local police or


First you need to know what frequencies are in use in your area. For a comprehensive database, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

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.
