Question about Uniden BC92XLT Handheld Scanner
Hi I have just bought a Uniden UBC72XLT as a gift for my father for Christmas and we are baffeled how to make it work - it just makes a noise and does not seem to change when you push the scan button..
I think we need to direct it but not sure how can you please advise.
I had the same problem as well.i had to manually scan and mess with the freqs going up then down. but by doing this you will auto. tune in to the strongest, then baking it.

If it just seems to be "stuck" on static, you probably need to adjust the Squelch. Try turning the squelch down until the static stops.
If you haven't programmed any frequencies into the banks, scanning won't do anything. Press "Func" and "Scan" to perform a Search. This way, if you find a frequency with a lot of chatter, you can program it into a bank for scanning later.
The easiest thing to do is to find frequencies for your local police, fire, etc. on the internet & program them into the various banks on the scanner.
