I was given a uniden police scanner and I need to know the frequencies and how to get the static out. . Thank you . Rhonda Hansen


First thing to try is to change the "squelch" setting. If you squelch is set wrong, you will hear static all the time and the scanner may not scan. Turn the squelch until you no longer hear the static and the scanner scans.

I have entered a few frequencies into my scanner and now i am trying to get them to scan. I press the scan button and it will scan a channel one at a time, but i would liek for it to scan all the...


Your BC72XLT SCAN feature samples one frequency/channel at a time, but it should only stop on active frequencies. If it's stopping on inactive frequencies you may need to adjust the squelch. For more details on programming and operating your scanner you can download and print the factory manual, at no cost, here:

How to porgram bc140police scanning radio


First, you'll need a list of frequencies to program into the scanner. The BC140 memory is limited to just ten channels, so you'll need to select your coverage carefully. For a detailed database of active frequencies in your area, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

Once you have your frequency list:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press the Manual key to stop scanning.
- Select the channel to program (1 through 10) by either entering it on the keyboard and then pressing Manual again, or by repeatedly pressing the Manual key to advance through the channels.
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.055).
- Press Enter (E) to save the frequency in the scanner's memory.
- Press Manual to advance to the next channel and enter your next frequency.

When you finish programming, press the Scan key to start scanning.

If you enter an out of band frequency, one that is not covered by the scanner, the display will show E for error.

My pro-82 scanner scans threw all channels but will not pick up any frequencies?


To verify that the scanner is working properly, program one or more of the weather frequencies(162.4, 162.425, 162.45, 162,475, 162.5, 162.525, 162.55, 161.65, 161.775, 163.275) into memory and then scan. NOTE: Not all frequencies are in use in all areas, so you may need to try several. If you receive the weather broadcasts, then you may need to adjust the squelch setting on your scanner to receive local signals. You also need to verify that the frequencies programmed into the scanner are valid, active frequencies in your area. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If the scanner fails to receive the weather broadcasts, you need to check the antenna connections inside the unit and/or have the scanner checked/repaired by a qualified technician.

How to tell what the buttons do?


The HOLD key lets you freeze the scanner on an active channel. For instance, if the scanner stops on channel 3, and there's a lot of action there. you can press HOLD to lock the scanner on that channel until you press the SCAN key. Repeatedly pressing the HOLD key will manually advance the selected channel.

SCAN releases a HOLD asnd will also take the unit out of PROGRAM or SEARCH modes and start it scanning the frequencies that you've programmed.

FUNCTION selects the secondary (lower) function of a key. For example, pressing FUNCTION and then the E (ENTER) key will switch the scanner to Pgm (Programming) mode - which lets you enter and store frequencies into the unit's memory so that you can scan them later.

All keyboard functions are explained in detail in the scanner operating manual, which you can download/print here:

How do you set up the scanner to scan police and ems channels


First you'll need a list of frequencies to program. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you've selected your frequencies, power the scanner ON and

1. Press E/PGM to enter the program mode (the scanner turns on the
PGM icon).

2. If the current channel is not the one you want to program, enter the
memory number then press HOLD.

3. Enter the frequency including the decimal point, then press E/PGM.

4. To program the next memory, press  or  and repeat step 3. To
program a different memory, repeat from step 2.

5. To exit program mode, press HOLD or SCAN or change the scanner’s mode.

Notes:
• Any frequency you program replaces the previous memory contents.
• If you enter a frequency you have already stored in a different
memory in Step 3, the scanner beeps and displays the channel
where you have previously stored the frequency. If you want to store
the frequency anyway, press E/PGM a second time in Step 3.
• To clear the contents of a memory, enter “0” in Step 3.
• Channels you program are automatically unlocked (see
“Locking/Unlocking Memories) and have Delay turned on (See
“Setting Channel Delay”).

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

Scanner not receiving


Performing a RESET will not clear/erase frequencies or other data programmed into the scanner. If the RESET doesn't work though, you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. That procedure will clear all programmed data and return the scanner to its "as new" state. Need the manual for your PRO-82? You canb download/print it here:
