How do I set up a uniden BCT15X

It's not really picking up anything. Just maybe a couple of radio stations, Spanish stuff and junk. Really nothing at all.

You may have to do a manual scan..or find out what frequency the different companies and police ,fire and airplanes use,,then you may need an outdoor scanner antenna,,the small antenna that comes with the scanner only picks up very strong signals,,,to program the scanner you may have to search online for programming info,,,,good luck

Need manuel for uniden bearcat trunktracker iii police scanner

Check your scanner for a model number. I have found an online manual for the Uniden BCT15X from Uniden: . This model has the TrunkTracker III logo to the upper left of the LCD screen. The Uniden logo is to the lower left of the LCD screen. The model number is given above the upper right of the LCD screen. Then the Bearcat logo is below the right side of the LCD screen. Some other Uniden scanner manuals are available here: . Scroll down to the Individual Scanners section to find the links.

I hope these links help.

Why no modulation in transmit mode?

Without seeing it I would guess (and it's only a guess) that maybe you have a broken microphone wire. If it's a factory mic the most common place for it to break is right up from the mic plug. Factory cords are not flexible, their really stiff. We could really use some more information. Mike

When i try to go to a radio station below 96.0, it starts going to other numbers and wont tune into any station until i go back above 96.0

The antenna on your radio is not strong enough to pick up frequencies below 96. It can be based on your location so try moving around. Or it can just be the general strength of the antenna in which there really isn't much you can do. Good luck!

Bose radio will not recieve am stations

The radio has a standard ferrite wrapped coil antenna. The only way it will pick up anything is if you have it above ground, not in a building with metal support beams, and near a window if possible. Basically if a cheap transistor radio will work there, the Bose will work there in AM. They really didn't put too much effort in making the AM radio very functional since AM is not a very popular listening medium anymore.

Hi, I'm about 40 miles NW of Chicago and reception here is not great. I like to listen to AM radio. I usually use my speakers just to listen to CD's, but I decided to try my Acoustic Research receivers...

First make certain the CD player isn't on when the radio is on. CD players cause inteferance with radio's. Apart from that you will need a good aerial. If that doesn't improve it then it could be down to local conditions -hills, power lines etc, blocking the signal. Also check there's nothing around the house that might cause interferance to the signal.

Anythings possible with a 10 year old car. Could be a fuel pump or ignition issue. We have tools to test for this situation. Without testing were all just guessing. Would you really throw a $500 dollar part on the car without accurately testing because someone said too. This really needs to be brought to a repair shop.
