First if you don't have an owner's manual you can download a copy free HERE
Be sure to read all of it...it'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 google.com 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.

Follow the link below to download/print the manual for your scanner. You may or may not be able to hear the services you mentioned using this scanner due to its limited frequency coverage. Many public service agencies now transmit in the 800MHz range, and many have upgraded to trunked and even digital radio systems. I cannot find any reference to PCH LOCK, but an educated guess would be that it means all programmed channels are locked out. If none of the 10 channels contain programmed frequencies, displays will show 000.0000MHz, and all channels will be locked out. Programming a frequency into any channel should override the lockout. On the other hand, the message could indicate that this old scanner is tired and in need of replacement. Here's the link to your manual:
