Happygirl, your probably not gonna be so happy now, but if the scanner took a lightning hit then some of the critical parts(ic chips) have been hit and it would cost more to get the scanner up and running than another good used one would cost. I just sold a nice 100 channel on e-bay for $49.00. This is just my opinion, as a lightning strike has a few hundred thousand volts running around in there. Hope this helps,, Mechanic

Scanner stuck on one channel and won't allow me to enter new freq


Push the "L/O" lockout button and it will lockout that channel.
When you press "Scan" you have to have at least one of the banks scanning, so press 1, 2, 3,....9, 0 whatever bank you have channels programmed in order to automatically scan. You should be able to press "Manual" to see each channel individually.

Programin the codes in a bc60xlt bearcat scanner


I am not familar with that model scanner but all the uniden radios I have used have direct freq entry......Hit manual button, select what channel you wish to enter it in, hit manual again. Enter the freq desired, then hit enter. That should enter the freq in that channel space. Hit enter again to go to the next channel for programming. Hope this helps.

Programming Bearcat BC 55XLT Scanner


Ok doc, I'll see if I can walk you thru this as there don't seem to be a manual available for download.
* Push manual button and bring it around to channel #1
Enter the freq including the decimal point. Push the E button to enter the freq into the first channel.
* Push manual again and move to channel #2 and repeat.
If you need some new freq's for your area, go here, click on your state, county, and it'll give you a complete rundown.

Scanner(POLICE) Question


Hi, using the manual button, step to channel 1 and enter your freq. including the point then press the E button. You might have to step to the next channel using the manual button again. Enter the next freq. and repeat. WX is the weather bands. Lockout is for locking out a nuisance channel(as an example, if someone's mic stays keyed, and keeps the squelch open).Priority is for any channel whose conversations you don't want to miss, just press the button for the specific channel. That way any time someone keys up on your priority channel, even if it's on another channel talking, will go right to the priority one. Review gives you a readout of the freq you programmed into a specific channel. If you need new or extra freq's check here on this site.

Programing scanner


Hi tina33, I have an 860 scanner,and this is how I do it. If there is no freq's in there yet, start on channel 1 and punch in the freq- hit E and it will enter it into the first channel. Hit manual to go to ch 2 and repeat. If you need freq's for your area, go here and search out your state and county and it'll give you a list of freq's for your county.You do not have to add the weather channels as their in there already, just hit the weather button. I use an external antenna on mine as it extends the range and allows me to pick up the cars as well.

HI again, the 248 is only a 50 channel, do you need this info for the 860? If so, I answered in your other post, but here it is again.
