Question about Uniden BC72XLT Handheld Scanner
Theres a couple of things Ive come across with this scanner that the owners manual does not explain:
1) In the close call mode if the "hold" button is pressed on the bottom left the word 'hold' will appear with either the word Lo, Hi, Air, Or uhf above it, I can't figure out what this is for.
2) while in search mode SOmetimes to the right of the frequency number a smaller number will appear, usually a 25, 50, or 75. Cant figure out what this means
1) the words Lo, Hi, Air, and UHF are indicating that you told your scanner to hold on a specific frequency modulation, this is normal, pay it no mind.
2) these numbers represent sub-frequencies that are encoded into the scanner's frequency ID decoder. These numbers can also sometimes identify the frequency's pre-programmed bank number.
These problems are all basic functions of your scanner, I hope this answered your questions.

The other answer is wrong on #2.
The numbers 25, 50 and 75 which appear to the right of the frequency are the stepping. Channel bank numbers appear to the left and are 00-99.
