Scanners can covers more than just FM and are capable of quite a few things.

My scanners cover AM, FM, FMN, CW, USB, LSB from 0 to 3,000 MHz.

I have included the links and info below and will let you take it from there as more information is available those sites than I could give you in a week.

Heads up that in some countries / States this can carry severe penalty.

I cannot give any direct information and it up to you to make sure you apply to the laws of your state etc

A good source of information are the two sites below

Frequencies


Scanner software

With any luck you will also find either the manual or a link to it there as well as quite a lot of other useful information that would give you guidance as to the legality

A scanner scans fm band frequencies , and am depending on the model, these are radio waves and there are many of them out there and your signal clarity depends on alot of factors one of wich is proximity to the transmitting signal, the farther away you are from it the more static your going to get, static is very common.

I was given a uniden police scanner and I need to know the frequencies and how to get the static out. . Thank you . Rhonda Hansen


First thing to try is to change the "squelch" setting. If you squelch is set wrong, you will hear static all the time and the scanner may not scan. Turn the squelch until you no longer hear the static and the scanner scans.

When my scanner is on all I hear is static . I can hear pick up on it but inbetween it is all static


That's a hard one to answer without seeing the scanner and not knowing the location where you're operating it. Assuming that you've already adjusted to squelch to "mute" the scanner between transmissions, you might be in a weak signal area that requires something better than the back-of-set antenna that came with the scanner. Check eBay and other sources for inexpensive ($15-$30) indoor/outdoor antennas that are enclosed in PVC pipe. They can drastically improve reception.

Having major issues with programming my bearcat bc60xlt-1


You'll need to program the radio frequencies into your scanner before it will scan . For a list of frequencies in Anoka County CLICK HERE .
For specific programing instructions for your UNIDEN refer to your owner's manual. They will give you a step by step instruction on how to program the frequencies into your scanner memory (If you need a manual, CLICK HERE
...be sure to select the scanner option on their pull-down menu.
THEN when you have the radio frequencies stored into your scanner, you'll be able to press scan and away you go.
Be sure to adjust the squelch just high enough to eliminate the static...turn the squelch counterclockwise until you hear loud static, then turn Clockwise just enough to silence static...
Let us know if you still have trouble.

Constant static


Sounds like a tech problem internally, may need cleaning on the pot. A service center can fix it. Or could be an Ant problem? Check your Ant connection make sure they are good and not dirty. Mositure in our homes builds up inside and on all connection. 1200 grit Sand papers works well on ant connection. Or did you move the scanner? that will cause problems as well.

Scanner static


Use the channel lock out control, unless it is a frequency that you listen to, you may have interference that is causing random static. use a noise filter mechanism to minimize this problem, or buy a specialized scanner antenna that's guaranteed to minimize static.
If no avail, you may need to send it in to a store.

Hope this helps!

when they go digital, you may only hear static.
