I don't know where you are located, but I have a feeling that you are using two incompatible systems.
The PMR (Personal Mobil Radio) is build for the European market. The allocated frequencies for it's 8 channels are from 446.00625 Mhz to 446.09375 Mhz. Your Motorola is for the US market GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) and FRS (Family Radio Service) and it's channels are allocated from 462 Mhz and 467 Mhz area.
Bottom line is, since their channels are on different frequencies, they can't talk to each other.
BTW, it would be illegal to use the European radio in the US and visa versa. You could be interferring with other radio services.
The ERROR message usually indicates that you've tried to program a frequency outside the scanner's tuning range. The BC60XLT top tuning range is the 512 MHz band, so you cannot tune any 800 MHz frequencies. For further information you can download and print the factory manual, at no cost, here:
Your scanner does not receive frequencies between 54 and 137 MHz, and there's nothing you can do to enable reception in that block. Your only option is to purchase a scanner with air band coverage. Here are the reception ranges of the BC-60XLT-1:
29.0-29.7 MHz 10 Meter Amateur Band 29.7-50 MHz VHF Low Band 50-54 MHz 6 Meter Amateur Band 137-144 MHz Military Land Mobile 144-148 MHz 2 Meter Amateur Band 148-174 MHz VHF High Band Above bands in 5 kHz steps 406-420 MHz Federal Government 420-450 MHz 70 cm Amateur Band 450-470 MHz UHF Standard Band 470-512 MHz UHF "T" Band Above bands in 12.5 kHz steps

The BC560XLT is a basic 16-channel scanner that covers 29-54, 136-174, and 406-512 MHz. For information on the users of these bands, and complete information on using this scanner, you can download and print the operating manual here:
Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC 142XL scanner.
Turn it on. Push the MANUAL button to stop it from scanning.
Push number 1, then push MANUAL again. This should leave you on
Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
E. Press REVIEW at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the frequency coverage list below.
Push MANUAL to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push E. Push MANUAL to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all ten channels are programmed, or you've run out of frequencies to
Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.
20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)

The 92 does not have a separate/dedicated weather band feature, but you can program individual NOAA frequencies into it. Weather broadcast frequencies are: 162.400 MHz : 162.425 MHz : 162.450 MHz : 162.475 MHz : 162.500 MHz : 162.525 MHz : 162.550 MHz.
Do you know what frequencies they use? This scanner does not cover the 200-400 MHz range, where military planes operate in the United States. If the UK military uses the same band then you probably will not be able to monitor them.
