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

Go to radio reference guide on the internet. You will see a state by state listing. Click on your state, your county of city and select the P.D. you want.

What is causing the scanner to stick on a channel?


Did you change the squelch while the scanner stops? even what looks like noise, can stop the scanner from going to the next frequency.

What are the meanings of the police 10 codes?


You use to be able to go to Radio Shack and they would give you a sheet of the codes for free and their meanings. But i don't know if they still do it for free or not.

Low volume controll


In recent years public service and all land mobile has moved to narrow band FM from the old 12.5khz or 5khz bandwidth FM to new 2.5 and 1.25 khz format.
The older scanners will play these transmissions with much lower volume and there is nothing that can be done to the scanner to solve this.
You can buy an amplified speaker and use that to further boost the audio or just replace the scanner with a new scanner built by Uniden or GRE (General Research Electronics) who make almost every scanner on the market. Both are good units.

I need local police and fire frequncies how do i get them free


Try contacting your local law enforcement agency, they will usually be happy enough to send you a list for your county - however there are frequency numbers that are private and not ment to be 'scanned' by us regular folks. Your local newpaper or TV station may have the list on the website. All the other frequency numbers i know of i got out of my book - which btw was well worth the $10 becausee it gave me EVERY agency broadcasting : fire, sheriff, state police troops A-F, courthouse, etc. You can try letting your scanner do the work and have it scan for frequencies and store those that you find and dump the ones you dont like later, but if your going to do it that way let your scanner scan for a week or so - some frequencies dont get used very much. If your town/city has a website the local frequencies should also be listed there. Good Luck

I have BC 148XLT 16 channel scanning radio with weather alert. I used to get our local police and now don't. It's been unplugged for quite a while, since we moved and now am trying to get it to work,


Is quite possible that the police now use a digital signal. Your scanner predates the digital changeover and may not be capable of decoding the digital signal. Using your location, research the local frequency use to determine whether or not digital is being used.

Good luck,
Dan

Where do i get free police scanner frequency at what site


http://www.police-scanner.info/ is one site that offers frequencies. the easiest way though is to go to Radio Shack and purchase the scanner frequency book for your state. another alternative is to go to your book store and get the book. If you do a google search for scanner frequencies, sometimes you can get them for free. You might also contact friends who have scanners in your area and get the frequencies from them. The FCC lists all the scanner frequencies, as the people who use them, police, fire, ambulance and also coast guard, are all licensed and this is public info. so google the fcc and check there. I have several scanners and this is how I got my freqs.
