Question about Uniden BCT8 Base Scanner
OK.I bought three of these units because me and two of my friends drive big rigs in california. all three units when on Hwy channel,does not stop to recieve communication. If i stop it manuely on a frequencey i know will receives,it will work.SO i went through all the pre- programmed frequencies and wrote them down and programmed the into the private user channels,and will work fine.Thats all good but i bought also for the highway warning alert which does not work on the private user channel.All lock outs are off,the squech is right before you here static.All the other channels police,weather,fire/emergencey.rr,air,marine,dot...work great.HELP
Unfortunately, I think this is a common problem with these radios. I have a brand new BCT8 and it started to not receive anything on the pre-programed highway patrol after using less than a month. Unfortunately the best bet would be to contact Uniden which they will probably tell you to reload the firmware (which won't solve the problem) or send it to them to fix.
