SOME, of the Bearcat radios you could hold down the "2" and "9" button while turning it on - worked on the old units; I don't know about the newer ones.

What did you mean by change the squelch?

The squelch control gets rid of the hissing on a blank channel. Finda blank channel, turn up the squelch control until the hissing stops. The scanner should then scan the channels and stop on a busy one.

What is causing the scanner to stick on a channel?

Did you change the squelch while the scanner stops? even what looks like noise, can stop the scanner from going to the next frequency.

We cant figure out how to program our bc355c scanner and where to find the codes so we can get it programed and start using it

The BC355C is a factory-programmed scanner, and you cannot program it in the normal manner (entering frequencies via the keyboard). You can, however, transfer a displayed frequency in SEARCH or SCAN mode to your PRIVATE bank. Detailed instructions for doing this are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're not codes), and a lot of other useful scanning information, here:

Is there a video on how to manually program the bearcat scanner BC355C 100 channel to put in my area frequency into the scanner?

Sorry, but there is no such video that I know of. Besides that, your BC355C is not a programmable scanner in the standard sense, in that you cannot enter frequencies via the keyboard. You can, however, transfer a displayed frequency from the SCAN or SEARCH mode into the PRIVATE bank. Fairly simple instructions are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:
