  • After you reset the scanner you have to initialize it again.

  1. 1. Power the scanner off and on.
  2. 2. Press and hold the "TUNE/CLEAR" key and stick the end of a paperclip in the reset hole and hit the rest button.
  3. 3. Now remove the paperclip off the reset button and wait for the display to turn back on.
  4. 4. Now release the "TUNE/CLEAR" key.
  • The scanner is no initialized and ready to be programmed again.

  • Now program the scanner.

  1. 1. Press "PGM" key.
  2. 2. Now enter a channel you want to store a frequency.
  3. 3. Press "PGM" again.
  4. 4. Now you will be on that channel.
  5. 5. Now enter the frequency you want to program and don't forget the decimal.
  6. 6. Now press the "ENT" key.

  • Repeat steps to program more frequencies.

  • Hope this helps.

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

Cant get know help to program my scanner


Programming the BC60XLT is simple and straightforward:

- Select the frequency to program.
- Select the channel that you wish to program it into. You can press MAN and the channel number, followed by MAN, or just repeatedly press MAN until the desired channel is displayed.
- Enter the frequency, including decimal point (for example, 156.065). The decimal will display as a dash.
- Press E. The frequency is now programmed into the scanner memory, and you can repeat the process to program any channel.

For more information on your scanner, you can download/print the operating manual here:

Cant get off lockout


If a channel does not have a frequency programmed into it, it will display 000.0000 and the L/O icon. Programming a frequency into the channel will automatically release the lockout.

To release lockout from a single channel, select that channel and then press the L/O key.

To unlock all programmed channels, select all frequency to ON, then press and hold the L/O key until the scanner responds with 2 beeps.

For a full reset of the scanner, press and hold the 2, 9, and HOLD keys while powering up the scanner. The reset will take about 3 seconds, and will be confirmed with a display of CLEAr. NOTE: this will reset the scanner to its original factory settings, and will delete everything that you've programmed into it.

Need the manual? You can download/print it here:

Ok doc, I'll see if I can walk you thru this as there don't seem to be a manual available for download.
* Push manual button and bring it around to channel #1
Enter the freq including the decimal point. Push the E button to enter the freq into the first channel.
* Push manual again and move to channel #2 and repeat.
If you need some new freq's for your area, go here, click on your state, county, and it'll give you a complete rundown.
