Your first step is to compile a list of active frequencies in your area. You can find a very good database at: www.RadioReference.com
Next, mark or highlight the frequencies that you want to program, making sure that they will work with your scanner. See your scanner manual for a list of covered frequency ranges. The BC80XLT will hold 50 frequencies.
Once you have the desired frequencies, you're ready to begin:
- Power the scanner ON. - Press the MANUAL key. - Enter the channel number that you want to program (01 - 50). If you're going to program the entire scanner for the first time, start with channel 01. - Press the MANUAL key. - Use the keypad to enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 146.075). Zeros at the end of the listed frequency need not be entered (e.g., 805.25000 should be entered as 805.25). - Press the E key to save your program information. - Press MANUAL to advance to the next channel, then start by entering the frequency.
More detailed instructions are in the factory manual. If you don't have a copy you can download and print it, at no cost, here: http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC80XLTom.pdf
First, be sure that the frequency that you're trying to enter is withjin the scanner's tuning range. The ERROR message will appear if you enter an invalid frequency.
Second, follow this sequence to program a known frequency: - Power the scanner ON. - Press HOLD. - Enter the number of the channel you wish to program. - Press the Func and Pgm keys (channel number will display). - Enter the frequency, including the decimal point. - Press E to enter your information into the scanner's memory.
