Link to programming cable if your PC has a DB-9 serial port:

If I find any frequency databases for your area I will post them as information becomes available. For one on one programming help I would recommend fixya Live Chat.

I am in canada i live in abbotsford bc v2t4l8 the police have gone digital there is no signel i bought a 100 channel it is now usless what ami to do g smith

  • Hi,

  • Well as a HAM I program repeater frequencies that are far away and run them through the scanner and when they are picked up then the conditions are open from that direction to work other frequencies.

  • You can't use that for the local police if they have gone digital but there may be some other things you can use it for around your area (if they are not digital.)

  • You can also put it on E-Bay as many many places are not yet digital. Like where I live, I still use a triple trunking scanner. So many would be interested in that scanner. You can recover some of the money anyway,

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Want to get my scanner programmed

This radio comes with most of the "action" frequencies already programed in memory. Go to this site if you don't have the manual.

If you want to send it off, go to and you will find a place to send it for reprograming.

I have two uniden scanners (BCT 8) and both have stopped working. On checking we know all scanners in the Reno NV area have stopped working on the trunking system EDCAS - any suggestions as to what it may...

Your EDACS system may have switched on the ProVoice security system. If so, NO scanner will pick up their trunked transmissions. For more information/research on the EDACS system in your area, I suggest you visit

I want to unblock my uniden bct7 scanner, Can anybody tell me how

The BCT-7 covers popular frequency bands, skipping things like television signals, non-voice (data) bands, and banned (cellular) bands. It cannot be modified to receive other frequencies. Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

Where to find Radio frequencies In Canada BC also when i enter the numbers how do i know that they are going to work I am very new to this?

Here's a link to the frequency database for British Columbia:

As far as individual frequencies "working," that will depend greatly on your location, altitude, and antenna (an outdoor antenna will pull in a lot more signals than the antenna that came with the set). It's basically trial and error.

Welcome to the hobby.
