Hello,The BC355C is an oddball unit that does not allow true manualprogramming. You cannot take a list of known frequencies and programthem into the scanner. Instead. a frequency must be located (anddisplayed) during a search or scan operation in order to be programmedinto scanner memory. Need the manual for your scanner? You candownload/print it free of charge here:

wish you good luck,

take care.

Have a new uniden bc355c scanner. How do i program frequencies into the private channel so that those are the only frequencies scanned.


With all due respect, I suggest reading the user manual that came with your scanner. The user manual is the best reference material there is. for this product. If you need frequencies go to www.radioreference.com

Easy way to program my bc355c scanner


The BC355C is a factory pre-programmed scanner, and it cannot be programmed in the usual manner (entering and saving a frequency via the keyboard). You can, however, transfer any displayed frequency in the SEARCH or SCAN modes to the scanner's PRIVATE banks, saving it for later scans. Detailed instructions for doing this can be found on pages 49 through 56 of the factory manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Can i program my bc355c scanner to scan only the channels i programmed?


Yes, once you have programmed/transferred frequencies into the PRIVATE bank, with the scanner powered ON, press the PRIVATE key to start scanning. Need the manual for your scanner? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Is there a video on how to manually program the bearcat scanner BC355C 100 channel to put in my area frequency into the scanner?


Sorry, but there is no such video that I know of. Besides that, your BC355C is not a programmable scanner in the standard sense, in that you cannot enter frequencies via the keyboard. You can, however, transfer a displayed frequency from the SCAN or SEARCH mode into the PRIVATE bank. Fairly simple instructions are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

New BC355C put 7 channels in,but only will stop on 2


1. Be sure sure that your squelch is adjusted properly. While scanning, turn the SQUELCH control down slowly until scanning stops and you hear a hissing sound. Then slowly turn the control back up until scanning resumes. That will set a proper threshold level for the frequencies you're monitoring.
2. Be sure that signals are not blocked in your area. Topography plays a large part in VHF and UHF radio reception. A hill, a tall building, even a thick grove of trees can prevent a signal from reaching your antenna.
3. It's possible that there was just no traffic on the five freqs while you were listening.
4. Be sure that the frequencies you've programmed are assigned in your area.
