Even if your scanner can manage to receive the frequencies, you would not be able to hear what people are saying. only the first generations of cell phones were analog and you could hear on side of the connection. Today all pone communication is digital, encrypted and you only can receive a phone close enough to you, to hear just a rattling noise. Modern phones are working close to and above 2 Ghz. A frequency, most scanners can't receive.

Im just getting a error on my screen when i put in frecuiencies on my pro135

The ERROR message normally indicates that you've entered a frequency that's out of the scanner's tuning range. Check your manual to confirm that your frequencies are within the unit's reception capabilities. If the freq is in range and the problem continues, you may need to RESET or INITIALIZE the scanner to restore it to its original factory settings.

To RESET the PRO-135:
1. Power the scanner OFF.
2. While holding in the 2, 9 and PSE keys, power the scanner on. The process takes about 3 seconds to complete.

To INITIALIZE the scanner:
1. Power the scanner OFF
2. While holding in the 3, ENT, and PGM keys, power the scanner ON.
NOTE: The INITIALIZE process will delete/erase all of the information that you've programmed into the scanner.

After I enter a frequencie the enter button doesnt work to enter

If all else fails, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scannerto bring it back to normal operation.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Press 0 then 1 while "Welcome to Dual Trunking" is displayed.
- "Initializing Please Wait" will appear for about 2 seconds.

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.

How do I delete codes out of this scanner

Look in the owners manual, or online for the procedure. Or you can, as I remember, with the unit off, push number 2 and 9, then while holding down, turn unit on. Hold buttons until the display shows all zeros in the frequencie display. This will remove all frequencies so you can reprogram again.

BC340RS want to listen to digital police frequencie. I work for Lewiston fire department in Maine. We are on 153.950 believe we are analog the scanner picks that up fine Lewiston PD is digital 158.790...

This usually means a software package that is capable of decoding digital.

Most bearcats are pretty good in the digital area.

It some cases it may even mean a slight modification to the scanner.

You should be aware however that scanner use in the US has quite strict legislation which in some states may prohibit the decoding of such signals so please check first.

A good source of information are the two sites below


Scanner software

These may also help you find out if it legal or not in your state
