Question about Uniden TRUNKTRACKER III

3 Answers

Unintelliginle I have a BC780XLT Trunktracker III. I do not know where to find the frequencies for talk-groups. I have some police frequencies entered but I miss half the conversation most times. I am annoyed that even Uniden Tech-Support cannot give me a DEFINITIVE way to understand my scanner. Is there a "Scanners for DUmmies" out there? I know how to input frequencies...but input what?! I am not against "paying" for the service. I simply want to understand HOW to do things and NO ONE seems to know or be willing to help!

You will need more information of the Police frequencies in your area. They may be on a conventional one channel at a time set up or on a Trunking system.

Trunking systems will change frequencies and a conversation can jump around channels.
The reason being is a Trunked system will use a group of channels and their radios will be given any open channel in the group by the system controller computer at the site depending on what brand of system they have. The conversation may stay on one channel or jump to one or another.

If you can find the local radio technician at a two way shop or ham operator in your town. He or she might be able to tell you what frequencies and codes to put in your Talk-Groups.

Your scanner is a bit more complicated than a regular vhf / uhf type scanner so it has to be set up to work in your area and most all areas are different.

Need manuel for uniden bearcat trunktracker iii police scanner


Check your scanner for a model number. I have found an online manual for the Uniden BCT15X from Uniden: http://info.uniden.com/twiki/bin/view/UnidenMan4/BCT15X . This model has the TrunkTracker III logo to the upper left of the LCD screen. The Uniden logo is to the lower left of the LCD screen. The model number is given above the upper right of the LCD screen. Then the Bearcat logo is below the right side of the LCD screen. Some other Uniden scanner manuals are available here: http://info.uniden.com/twiki/bin/view/UnidenMan4/UnidenScannersUsersGuides . Scroll down to the Individual Scanners section to find the links.

I hope these links help.

Police scanner codes


While looking up local listing will take a little leg work, These links below will give you some great starting points.
Just remember, agencies will change frequencies, Hardware, and radio types from analog, to digital, to trunked.
Also web sites may not have most up to date listings, Id also suggest local amateur radio aka Ham radio clubs. some of the guys there may be able to help you out as well.
Best of luck and SCAN ON! :) Enjoy
