    My Radio Shack Nascar scanner displays the "program" icon and "wired" on the screen. I've only tried removing the batteries and reinstalling them. Doesn't help. Any solutions? Thanks

  • cubusman May 08, 2008

    Have the same problem with my PRO-84 (BC92XLT) where it shows PGM and WirEd in the display and cannot get it to disappear, reprogram etc. Have read the Radio Shack guide regarding (Wired Programming), but does not state or give instruction procedures on how to delete and/or erase this. Never attempted to transfer data via computer. ANY assistance ANYONE can give will be appreciated!

How do you find someone to program a Bearcat scanner?


The 370 is a straightforward scanner and fairly simple to set up, and you should be able to program it yourself with no problems.

Your first step is to make a list of the frequencies that you want to program. Your scanner has the capacity to hold up to 300 frequencies, so you should probably write out a list or type it up in your computer. There's an area in the scanner operating manual for listing your frequencies, but it doesn't have space for you to list the users. You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area by visiting:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you have your list,
1. Power the scanner ON.
2. Press the E/PGM key to enter the programming mode.
3. If the displayed channel is not the one you want to program, enter the desired channel number and then press HOLD.
4. Enter the desired frequency - including the decimal point.
5. Press E/PGM to enter your data into the scanner's memory.
6. To program the next channel, press the UP or DOWN arrow key, and then start again with step 4 above.
7. To exit the programming mode, press the HOLD and SCAN keys.

The scanner operating manual contains more detailed programming instructions, along with information on how to use features like SEARCH, Weather Alerts, and Band Search. If you don't already have a copy of the manual, you can download and print it here:

If you run into any problems while programming, just let us know.

Before you start programming you'll need a list of frequencies (not codes). For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

That site also contains a lot of other useful scanning data, including links to users groups.

To program a known frequency into the scanner:
1. Power the unit ON.
2. Press the PGM key.
3. Enter the desired channel number (1-200).
4. Press PGM again.
5. Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (ex: 462.365).
6. Press ENT to enter the data into memory.
7. Repeat steps 2-6 for other channels.

More detailed programming instructions can be found in the scanner operating manual which you can download/print here:

- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal (for example, 156.045).
- Press E/L-OUT to store the frequency.
- Repeat steps 2 - 4 to program another frequency.

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”).

How do you set the scanner to your local police or


First you need to know what frequencies are in use in your area. For a comprehensive database, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

To enter (program) a frequency for future scanning:
- Slide the MODE switch to Scanner
- Press the E (PGM) key. This will turn on the PGM indicator at the top right of the display.
- Press the UP or DOWN arrow (above the SCAN and HOLD keys) to advance to the desired channel, OR enter the channel number using the keypad.
- Press HOLD
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (e.g. 155.67).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- To continue programming, use the UP or down key to advance OR enter a channel number, press HOLD, and continue programming as above.

When you're finished programming, press HOLD or SCAN.

I hope this helps. I have a BC370CRS on my desk, and I found that the programming is fairly simple -- once I got used to it.

NOTE: The BC370CRS will NOT work with trunked or digital radio systems. If these are in use in your area you will need a different scanner to listen in.

If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:

- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON.
- Press the SVC button (chrome button below display).
- Press POL (chrome button below display).
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise.
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.

If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.

To Program:

- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner."
- Power the unit ON
- Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes.
- Press HOLD.
- Press E (PGM).
- Press 0, 1.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02.
- Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press the E (PGM) key.

You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .

If it still will not accept programming, let me know.

The frequencies probably aren't the same, so you're gonna have to do a little research, but hope this helps.

  1. Turn the scanner off and then back on.
  2. The first thing we'll do is clear all of the frequencies in the bank you'll use to listen to Gwinnett County.
  3. Press the black F button, then press 0, then press the F button again, then press CL, and then press the 1 button.
  4. Enter 000 and then press PGM to enter programming mode starting at channel 0. On the display the P on the left of the first line of the display says you're in programming mode, and the 000 indicates your looking at channel 0.
  5. Press the orange T button to enter trunking mode.
  6. Press the MODE button until Motorola is displayed on line 2 of the display.
  7. Press the PGM button again to begin entering frequencies. You'll enter 24 frequencies total. If you make a mistake while entering a frequency you can press the CL button to delete the last number entered. If you accidently press the PGM button twice while entering frequencies you can press the down arrow to back-up to the previous location.
  8. Enter the first frequency, 854.78750, then press ENT and then press PGM to go to the next channel.
  9. Repeat step #8 for the rest of the frequencies 854.81250, 854.83750, 855.31250, 855.48750, 855.76250, 855.78750, 855.81250, 856.81250, 856.83750, 856.91250, 857.81250, 857.83750, 857.91250, 858.78750, 858.81250, 866.13750, 866.21250, 866.38750, 867.33750, 867.38750, 867.96250, 868.11250, 868.13750, 868.48750.
  10. To double-check that you entered all of the frequencies correctly enter 0 and then the PGM button to go back to the first frequency entered.
  11. Press PGM to go through all 24 frequencies, if you see a mistake enter the correct frequency and then press ENT to save it, continue pressing PGM until you have verified all 24 frequencies.
  12. Next press 0 and then PGM to go back to the first frequency again.
  13. Press the MODE button until you see MO following the channel number on the first line of the display (P000 for example). After MO is displayed press PGM to go to the next frequency.
  14. Repeat step #13 for each of the 24 frequencies.
