I am trying to figure out how to set the scanner frequencies


  1. Press hold then enter then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency. Then press "FUNC" and "PGM" and the channel number will appear.
  2. Use the number keys to enter a frequency including the decimal point you want to store.
  3. Press "E" to store the frequency into the channel.
  4. Note - If you entered an invalid frequency in step two "ERROR" will appear and it will beep three times. Enter a valid frequency.
  5. The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. ie an entry of 155.174 will automatically be rounded to 155.175
  6. When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and "DLY" appears. When delay is turned on the scanner automatically pauses scanning.

I have reset my uniden bc scanner and am trying to re porgram frequencies in i press hold, put in frequency number , press func. and then prgm. and it keeps telling me error. What could be wrong?


First, be sure that the frequency that you're trying to enter is withjin the scanner's tuning range. The ERROR message will appear if you enter an invalid frequency.

Second, follow this sequence to program a known frequency:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter the number of the channel you wish to program.
- Press the Func and Pgm keys (channel number will display).
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press E to enter your information into the scanner's memory.

I cannot figure out how to program my scanner to the fire frequency.


To program any known frequency into your BC72XLT, power the scanner ON, and then:

1. Press Hold. Then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency, then press Func and Pgm. The channel number appears.
2. Use the number keys and to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel.

Notes:
• If you entered an invalid frequency in Step 2, Error appears and the scanner beeps three times. Enter a valid frequency.
• The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter 151.473 (MHz), your scanner accepts it as 151.475.
• When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and DLY appears. When delay is turned on, the scanner automatically pauses scanning 2 seconds after the end of a transmission before scanning proceeds to the next channel. To turn the function off or on, press Func + Dly.
• If you enter a frequency that has already been entered elsewhere, the scanner sounds an error tone and displays the channel that was duplicated. If you entered the frequency by mistake, press then enter the correct frequency. To enter the frequency anyway, press E to
accept.

4. To program the next channel in sequence, press E then repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Need to know how to put codes in


If your scanner is the BC350C (the section you posted in), here's a link to the owner's manual which will give you detailed programming information:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC350Com.pdf

If you have a different model Bearcat scanner, try:

1. Push MANUAL to stop scanning and advance to the channel that you want to program.

2. Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.015).

3. Press E or ENTER to set the frequency.

4. Repeat the process, starting with 1 above to select the channel.

NOTE: With some Bearcat scanners you may need to press the E or ENTER key before entering your frequency.

These are general steps that work on most recent Bearcat models. If they don't work on yours, try different variations. You can also check Uniden.com -- they may have an online manual that you can download and print.
