I have a uniden bc72xlt can i put in police frequideneny


Hi - this scanner will allow you to monitor any service (police, fire, EMS, Weather, Ham, FRS , GMRS, and lots more) that transmits an analog AM or FM signal in the 25-88Mhz, 108-174Mhz or 406-512Mhz range.

You will need to determine frequencies of the services of interest in your area and program them into the radio's memory. You can find frequencies in books sold online and places like Radio Shack. You will probably find a lot of frequencies by looking at Google results for them. Have a look at my link to the search results for "Boston, MA Scanner Frequencies" below:

http://preview.tinyurl.com/cgn5bzs

You should try typing your city, town or county over "Boston MA" and click search to get a list of frequencies in your area. You may also want to check out the Scanner Master website for additional help if you like.

Good luck!

How can i stop the squelch ive tryed turning the sqcuelch doesnt help


Plug the AC adapter into the back of the scanner and into a wall electrical outlet. Screw the antenna into the receptacle on the back of the scanner (extend the antenna to full length for best reception).

  • 2 Set the squelch level to allow signals to be heard by turning the squelch knob counterclockwise. Rotate the volume knob clockwise until you hear static. Slowly turn the squelch knob clockwise until the static noise disappears.
  • 3 Start programming frequencies into the scanner by pressing the "Manual" button.
  • 4 Press the up arrow or down arrow key until the channel you wish to program is visible on the display.
  • 5 Use the numbers on the keypad to enter the frequency for the local transmitter you wish to receive.
  • 6 Press the "E" key to complete the process of entering the frequency.
  • 7 Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each additional frequency you wish to monitor.
  • 8 Press the "Scan" key to start the scanning process. The scanner stops on a channel when it detects a signal strong enough to hear over the squelch setting. Two seconds after the signal stops, the scanning process resumes.

    I cant listen to the police


    First, make sure that you have the correct frequency for your local police. You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area by visiting:
    www.Reference.com

    Program the frequency or frequencies using the instructions in the scanner's operating manual. and you should be all set. If you need the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:
    http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC60XLT-1om.pdf

    NOTE: If the frequency database shows that your local police are using a trunked system, you will not be able to monitor them using the BC60XLT-1. Trunked systems require a trunking scanner. Many law enforcement agencies are also using digital systems for their communications. If that's the case in your area you'll need a scanner capable of monitoring APCO-25 digital transmissions.

    Scanner not picking up local police-Fire freq


    Do you still receive NOAA weather frequencies? Sounds like your local agencies have switched from simplex/standard frequency operation to trunking. I suggest you visit www.RadioReference.com to view the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area.

    Police frequency code for the city of southgate, ca . i have a uniden police scanner however i can not seem to find the city codes. do you know where i might be able to find these codes?


    For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're no codes), visit:

    www.RadioReference.com

    There's a good chance that your community has changed from conventional frequency usage to a trunked radio system. If that's the case you can read up on it at RadioReference.com, but you won't be able to monitor the action with your current scanner.

    When scanning the radio resumes before end of transmission


    The manual states that the scanning will halt whenever the squelch is broken by a transmission, just as expected. When the transmission is complete, the radio continues scanning. This makes hearing any reply nearly imposible to monitor - and is the problem I believe you are describing.

    Page 37 of the manual says that a 2 second delay can be assigned to a frequency whenever the radio has paused on a channel. Simply press the DELAY key on the scanner to assign the delay to the channel. If there is no additional transmission within 2 seconds, scanning will resume.

    Below is a copy of the manual to reference or print if you can't find yours (you'll need a free program called "Adobe Reader" found at www.adobe.com to view or print this manual).

    Pioneer GEX-FM903XM, system works great, however it often drops out and has just static. The signal indicator is strong. I think there is a bad connection into the radio. Where should I start...


    It may be possible that the FM frequency chosen during setup, is in use in your area by a strong signal from a local station. Change to another frequency and see if the situation improves.


    The following is from the Operation's Manual:


    FM Modulator Setting
    You can adjust FM Modulator frequency and output level.
    7 Frequency
    If output from the FM Modulator is hard to hear due to interference from a strong broadcast
    station transmission, you can switch to another frequency.
    You can adjust frequency between 87.9 and 90.1MHz.
    7 Level
    If the output sound is too quiet, too loud or distorted, you can adjust FM Modulator output
    level.
    You can adjust level between “LEVEL–1” and “LEVEL–7”.
    1. Press the POWER button for 2 seconds to enter the FM Modulator Setting
    mode.


    2. Select the desired frequency
    with the left/right arrow buttons.


    3. Increase or decrease the Level
    with the up/down arrows (buttons).




    4. To cancel the FM Modulator Setting mode, press the POWER button again
    for 2 seconds.
    Note:
    • After entering the FM Modulator Setting mode, if you do not perform an operation within about 8 seconds, the FM Modulator Setting is automatically canceled.
