If they are old scanners they prom based on a circuit board xtals and jumpers that are color coded like resisters. I the scanners like bearcat are computer controlled something like 2 way radios. the contain a pll to lock and prevent drift a circuit which combined with a cpu handles frequencies and multipiers. the core program is stored in eprom chips,eraseable programmable, read only memory. without replacing the eprom, there is a keypad sequence to gain access to all codes. you must google the exact make model and look for progamming codes. likey someone has a copy of a serve guide on ebay, most ham clubs have this info. I only programme 2 way radios
so I`m sorry that`s the extent of my scanner knowlede, hope this helps
Don't waste your money on a publication that's out of date before it's printed. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

You didn't mention what frequencies you're trying to program. BC148XLT coverage ends at 512 MHz, so you will get the error message if you try to program anything above that. Also, you must be sure to include the decimal point when programming a frequency into the scanner. I hope this helps.
