Programming the BC248CLT is fairly simple, and detailed instructions can be found in the factory manual that you can download and print here:

What you can program and what you can hear will depend on your location. Many communities now use trunking systems and digital (APCO-25) systems, and your scanner is not compatible with either. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area, visit:

How do I program my bearcat 144xl scanner?

The BC144XL is one of the few scanners that I haven't been able to locate a manual for, but programming it is fairly straight forward. Here's some guidance from Uniden:

Here are basic instructions for programming nearly all of the older scanners that Uniden produced. When the scanner is turned on press the MANUAL key, then press the channel number that you want to program first, then the MANUAL key again. This will stop the scanner from scanning and hold it on the channel that you want to program.
Then you enter the frequency (be sure to use the decimal point in the right area when entering in the frequency) and then press the E or ENTER button to save the frequency on the channel. You are now finished programming the channel. To advance to the next channel simply press the MANUAL key and enter your next frequency the same way that you entered it on the previous channel (as described at the beginning of this paragraph).

I hope this helps.

Bearcat BC144XL Scanner ~ no sound

Try it with an external speaker. The external speaker jack receives the audio from the scanner before it goes to the internal speaker. If the jack thinks there is still something plugged into it, the audio to the internal speaker is interrupted. If the jack is stuck, it may still work with an external speaker.

4. Start over with step one to continue programming channels.
