Re: i need to know how to program channels into it

HI again, the 248 is only a 50 channel, do you need this info for the 860? If so, I answered in your other post, but here it is again.

Hi tina33, I have an 860 scanner,and this is how I do it. If there is no freq's in there yet, start on channel 1 and punch in the freq- hit E and it will enter it into the first channel. Hit manual to go to ch 2 and repeat. If you need freq's for your area, go here and search out your state and county and it'll give you a list of freq's for your county.You do not have to add the weather channels as their in there already, just hit the weather button. I use an external antenna on mine as it extends the range and allows me to pick up the cars as well.
If you need a book for your scanner, you can get one here, just print1.gif it out.

Hope this helps,, Mechanic

Scanner problem

To unlock a channel, press 'manual' & keep pressing it until you reach the channel that's locked out, then press 'L/O'. Repeat until all channels are unlocked.

To program, press 'manual' until you get to the first "empty" channel, then enter the desired frequency using the keypad, then press 'E'. Repeat as needed.

Uniden/bearcat BC-100

If it's indeed a BC-100 and not a BC-100xlt, the 16 channels are easy to program and use.
1. Press MANUAL 3 MANUAL with 3 being the number of the channel you wish to program.
2. Enter the frequency for that channel (e.g., 162.55) followed by ENTER.
3. Follow the same sequence for each channel you wish to program, except that pressing MANUAL after you program a channel will advance the scanner to the next channel.

To scan, simply press the SCAN button after your frequencies are programmed.
