If you are good with electronics, go to www.mods.dk. They have an alignment manual for the Bearcat 140 series that also includes troubleshooting advice and schematics.

Use the manual for the Bearcat 145XL. It is virtually the same radio as the 140.

Your scanner is a basic 10-channel "oldie" and it's fairly simple to program and operate. To enter/program a known frequency:

- Power the scanner On
- Press MANUAL to stop scanning
- Press MANUAL repeatedly to advance to the channel that you wish to program
- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.225).
- Press E to enter the frequency into memory

Press the MANUAL key to advance through the channels, and press SCAN when you're ready to listen.

HELP with bc350c scanner, won't pick up feeds


Sounds like an antenna problem. Remove your back-of-set antenna and see if reception changes. If it's the same or nearly the same, check the antenna solder connections inside the set and resolder if necessary. You might also try an outdoor antenna or one of the indoor/outdoor units that's enclosed in PVC pipe. These are fairly inexpensive and can be found on eBay or other sources.

Manual for Bearcat Scanner BC 140 10 channel


I couldn't locate a manual for your oldie, but it's fairly simple to operate.

  1. Turn the scanner ON.
  2. Press "Manual" to stop scanning. Use the keyboard to choose the channel you want to enter your first frequency into. If you want channel 2, press the number 2 on the keyboard and then "Manual" again. If you want channel 12, press the 1 and then the 2 and then "Manual" again.
  3. Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point. For instance, if the frequency is 555.789, enter 5, 5, 5 and then the dot button, then 7, 8 and 9. Then press "Enter" to complete the setup.
  4. Use the "Manual" button to move to the next channel to enter the next frequency. Continue this process until you have all frequencies entered.
  5. Complete your entries and then press "Scan." Set the squelch by turning the "Squelch" knob all the way up and backing off until you hear no static.
  6. Lock out a channel that is annoying you by pressing the "Lockout" button. If you want to listen to the channel again, simply select "Manual," find the channel by entering it on the keypad and then hit "Lockout" again

Won't stop scanning


L16 Disc coil needs adjustment, Audio is slightly off, and improper noise to DC squelch level detect used to stop scan on active channel. Set to an on freq signal like a NOAA weather channel, and useing a non-metallic tool, adjust to best sounding audio, probably less than a half turn either direction. An on freq signal moduated by 1000hertz, connect scope to speaker and adjust for highest undistorted recovered audio would be better if you could.

DTV connection


Have you tried http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx? This will show you the location of the HD broadcast towers for your local stations and my recommendation would be to use an outdoor antenna if you can. Picking up the reception is definitely about pointing the antenna in the direction of the towers.
