    How do I get the l/o button to turn off. It seems to be stuck. I accidentially turned it on when I was trying to program a channel. Just holding it in for a few seconds didn't work.



    Also, in trying to program a channel I pressed manual, selected channel 2, then entered the frequency (464.xxx) and pressed enter. It didn't stick. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your assistance.

Lost owners manuel. need code install instructions. and also how to clear off all old codes


There is no general reset function that will clear all of the frequencies (they're not codes) from your scanner, but there are two ways to clear individual frequencies:
1. Programming "0.0" (zero point zero) into a channel will remove the programmed frequency.
2. Programming a new frequency into any channel will remove/override the previously programmed frequency.

You can download and print the manual for your scanner, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC248CLTom.pdf

I have a Uniden Bearcat 140 10 channel scanning radio and need to know how to program it. Can you help? The Model is BC 140 and the serial # 73061234 It was my dads and he passed on and I want to...


Your scanner is a basic 10-channel "oldie" and it's fairly simple to program and operate. To enter/program a known frequency:

- Power the scanner On
- Press MANUAL to stop scanning
- Press MANUAL repeatedly to advance to the channel that you wish to program
- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.225).
- Press E to enter the frequency into memory

Press the MANUAL key to advance through the channels, and press SCAN when you're ready to listen.

How do I program my bearcat 144xl scanner?


The BC144XL is one of the few scanners that I haven't been able to locate a manual for, but programming it is fairly straight forward. Here's some guidance from Uniden:

Here are basic instructions for programming nearly all of the older scanners that Uniden produced. When the scanner is turned on press the MANUAL key, then press the channel number that you want to program first, then the MANUAL key again. This will stop the scanner from scanning and hold it on the channel that you want to program.
Then you enter the frequency (be sure to use the decimal point in the right area when entering in the frequency) and then press the E or ENTER button to save the frequency on the channel. You are now finished programming the channel. To advance to the next channel simply press the MANUAL key and enter your next frequency the same way that you entered it on the previous channel (as described at the beginning of this paragraph).

I hope this helps.

Uniden UBC72XLT scanner problem.


The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

Uniden Bearcat Scanner Model# BC147XLT


The BC147XLT is too old to obtain a manual from Uniden, but here's how you program it:

Turn it on & press 'Manual', then enter the number of the channel you wish to program & press 'Manual' again. Now enter the frequency you want to put in that channel, example 155.550, and press "Enter'. Then press manual to go to the next channel or repeat the first procedure to select a different channel other than the next one. Repeat the programming procedure for each channel.
