Check this link for user manual if you need it http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC72XLTom.pdf
to heard trunking you should check if your scanner can handle this communications protocols.
to set frequencies, you should know wich band are they working, VHF, UHF, or 800, to start scanning.
Even they are in trunking, you will heard trunking channels but maybe just one side of the communications

Where can I find a replacement speaker for my Uniden Solaria?


Hi Douglas,

Firstly, do you have the user service manual for this unit, if not you should be able to download this from the Uniden website, free.

You may have a failed speaker, which will require replacement, if that is the case, Your local Radioshack or similar store will have such a part, and they're inexpensive.

You sound as if you have enough knowledge to fix this yourself, just buy the parts and you're on your way.

Best regards,
Peter

How to put the police channel on my uniden VH038SX-2NB


Hi Shorty,

Uniden UH038sx-2nb, is the make/model.

Unfortunately, what you have is a designated UHF CB radio, that can't be programmed with frequencies outside of the UHF CB band.
Well, not without stuffing the unit up, anyway.

Why would you want to program police frequencies into a 2-way radio anyway, The fact that police are moving or have moved to digital, means you won't hear anything anyway., so why bother?

That's what radio scanners were used for, until the cops found out, and started changing to Digital mode operations.

I really can't see the point of modifying and most likely destroying an otherwise perfectly working radio.

Sorry, I couldn't be more helpful, but that's life.

Regards,
Peter

if you are in new zealand you will probably want the intl. setting. this usually determines a difference in available frequecies. some would be useless in certain areas. the link has the proper frequencies for what you're looking for.

I have this scanner and it will scan but it wont pick nothin up


A couple of things could be involved in your problem. You need to be listening to the frequencies that are being used in your area, but most of them will not be transmitting all of the time. Something you can try is if you live maybe about 10-20 miles from an airport and your scanner picks up aircraft frequencies you can look up the airport and find the automated beacon frequency and tune that in. The automated beacon should be transmitting 24/7 the weather conditions of the airport.

Another thing to check is weather you have the correct antenna attached to your scanner and that it is connected properly, the circuits in your scanner may need that antenna to be connected for the circuit to function properly.

If you are using the scanner to listen to your local Fire Dispatch there can be days when there isn't anything happening.

Another problem could be that your local Dispatch has moved over to a new Digital System and your scanner isn't equipped to recieve that System.

You didn't specify the model number of your scanner, so here's a link to a list of available Uniden scanner manuals. If your model number is listed, just click on the "Product Details" column to download/print the manual. It will provide detailed programming instructions.

Scanner problem


Your scanner will only operate in these ranges 25-54, 108-174, 406-512 MHz. If the number you seek is outside this range then you may have to buy a digital scanner which will be $300 to $500.
